LookMumNoCar is the online persona of the bike riding, adventure loving vegan Andy Dickson. Who, after jumping headlong into his first extended cycle tour back in the summer of 2013 hasn’t looked back!
Taking the plunge to actually quit my job, leave my home and embark on the seemingly rediculus challange of riding my bike 5,300 miles acorss America from NY to LA was, looking back on it, a real turning point for me. This blog is a record of that continuing journy and I hope it encourages you to get out and follow your own dreams.
Since starting down this road I have not only traveled under my own steam to some breathtaking places, but have also been fortunate enough to earn a living supporting others to become more active. Currently I work and volunteer for a number of local cycle related charities, social enterprise and bike shops including Sustrans, Monty’s Bike Hub, Bespoke Biking and Bike U Like. This involves a wide variety of work form ride leading, bike mechanic, marketer, project manager, tour guide and community engagment officer too name a few. In addition I’m also an experience house and pet sitter with a passion for meditation.
