The Cyclist Philosopher

For Andy Duncan, cycling means freedom and life without it is hard to imagine. As a Scotsman and philosopher who stood at the frontier of bike messengering in the Netherlands his affection for cycling stem from the 225.000 km he travelled through the streets and suburbs of Utrecht during the last 22 years.

Surrounded by moving boxes, he was working on his last bike – battered, but resilient and very much in love.
