This set of 10 Questions For Soul comes from our new friend over at the Militant Cyclist blog here on WordPress.

He rides more than the average sane person does ( which is why we like him), is a passionate vegetarian, loves music (who doesn’t), a world traveler, and a graphic designer & calligrapher.

5. Current Bike(s)?: TREK XO1 Cyclocross. Giant cypress. Specialized Allez.

6. Favorite place to ride?: I’m going to sit here and stare at this question for the foreseeable future. How do I choose? Probably in India, the streets of Mumbai, dodging cars, trucks, auto-rickshaws, dogs, cows, POTHOLES FROM HELL, and the most random rubbish laying in the street you will ever find.

7. Favorite post-ride beverage?: Whole foods electrolyte enhanced water. I keep it simple. I’m trying to get off vitamin water since coca-cola bought the company. SOMEBODY GET ME OFF THE JUNK I’M JONESIN!

I am an artist and graphic designer, I have a job coming up in NYC in august im excited for. I love football. Proper football, not American football. Fulham is my team, its premiership league in England for those of you not familiar with it. I’ve been going to the Columbus Crew matches here lately.
