About The Foot Down
The Foot Down started out as a blog covering the UK fixed gear scene back in 2009 but has changed quite a bit since then. These days you’ll find a wider variety of cycling posts as well as a bit of skateboarding, trail running and anything else that takes my fancy.
I like to rant about all kinds of stuff, am irreverent to the core and pissing people off was a skill I was born with. Here are some great reviews of the blog…
“Oh dear! Attention seeking at its worst”
“wow the footdown really has gone downhill…”
“Hipster mentality at its purest.”
“Well, at least you don’t deny being a self righteous prick.”
“Oh fuck off.”
My name is Ty, I run the site all on my lonesome from Swansea, South Wales.
I’m far more into riding bikes than looking at them, I don’t wear a helmet, I like to ride slowly and quickly equally.
