Velorutionaries - Kevin Kimber
What do you do for a living?
I work in technology, and having spent the past fifteen years starting and scaling software businesses, I decided to start my own Advisory company working with start up and early stage technology companies to help them launch and scale. I spend my week working with some of the most innovative new companies advising them on strategy, and meeting with investors. I also work with a couple of charities that are focused on inspiring the next wave of entrepreneurs by going into schools, colleges and universities to talk about all things business.
What are you passionate about?
I am passionate about technology and its role in disrupting existing industries for the good of enterprise and society.
How long have you been a cyclist?
I have been a cyclist since I was able to walk. In my teens and twenties I was a very keen mountain biker, however as I’ve got a little older I more typically ride in the country lanes or on towpaths near where I live with my wife and daughter, hunting out new pubs to stop in. I also use my bike for commuting to and from the station as my work is typically in London.
What bike are you riding?
I am the very proud owner of a Pashley Speed 3, which is a limited edition launched to celebrate Pashley’s 90th Anniversary. It’s matt black and is great fun to ride.
What appeals to you about cycling?
Cycling is a great way to keep fit whilst doing something that I really enjoy. For me cycling tends to be less about the destination and more about the ride, and what I see on the way.
How often do you ride?
Most days to the station and then longer rides in the evenings and weekends.
What’s your favourite cycle route or destination?
My favourite cycle route is from my home along the canal to one of the many good pubs in either direction.
