You may wonder who Lilith is. That’s what I call my bike, obviously. OK, you may find the practice of naming a bicycle a bit cringey, which I won’t disagree with, but if nothing else, introducing your bike is a good ice-breaker. Imagine the conversation (pretending you are checking out the bike and not the … More 156 – My holiday with Lilith
Christmas blog in late February, sorry about that. This sentence has changed several times since I started writing this piece from late January to early and mid February. Let’s see if I can get it done by the end of the week. I’ve been busy. There are, surprisingly for some, still people who have a … More 153 – Is There Life on Mars?

Nowadays, over 80% recover, also thanks to the ceaseless work of organizations such as Bloodwise. I realize … More 116 – Cycling to Beat Blood Cancer 2019
One week ago I cycled into Paris for the third time in last three years among over 200 wonderful people from Bloodwise organization. As we arrived to Champs de Mars, I sat on the stairs watching Tour Eiffel and let the tears flow freely. As every previous year. It is impossible to describe the feelings, … More 106 – Thank You
As most (all, presumably) of you are aware of, I spent the previous year causing trouble around the world, and additional couple of months (almost three now) doing sweet F.A. in Europe after that. I will soon be starting a new job (details are as yet confidential, but more information will follow at some point). … More 103 – Cycling to Beat Blood Cancer
