Stravamad AKA The Wattmeister

A man of a certain vintage (but not in his own mind), devoted to cycling. Tall, lean and aerodynamic, with a military posture and a prominent nose, he looks like he could once have been a pro bike racer, so he plays on this theme, talking wistfully about breakaways in the Classics and the Grand Tours, as if he had once been part of that world.

In real life, he rides with his mates and follows as much televised racing as possible. Big rides include Paris-Brest -Paris and London-Edinburgh-London. He experienced an epiphany when joining Strava.

The name “Wattmeister” originated after a fortuitous ‘win’ in a group Maximum Power test, when he out-performed his younger rivals. He is a founder member of the Muswell Hill Peloton.

Most of his rides have been into a headwind.
