Author Biography

Born in France, Claire Rollet has lived in the UK most of her life. London is her home now, and she loves cycling around the city taking in its various cultures and landmarks. She works from a studio at the bottom of her garden. In terms of her process, first of all, Claire works out a composition and some ideas for the image using quick sketches to show to the client. She then creates a line drawing in Indian ink, then works on the colour digitally. Jackie Strachan has been cycling since progressing from her first trike aged 4 (big boot, handy for mum's shopping) via assorted bikes, including a Moulton Super 4, to her current Brompton and Specialized Crossroads Cruz. Currently living in Somerset, she spent 10 years cycling through thick city traffic into Central London from the suburbs and is a veteran urban cyclist, well versed in the dos and don'ts of life in the cycle lane. She is the author of Fix It Good: Car. Jane Moseley enjoys exploring cities in the saddle and is the author of a number of practical books, including Household Management for Men.
