About the hosts
Darryl is definitely the least technical guy in the Cycling 360 peleton, but there is no denying his love and passion for the bike. He adds a nice balance to the mix by bringing his unbridled enthusiasm and fun loving attitude to each of the podcasts, and really enjoys the interaction he has with his co-hosts.
He’s a bone fide social media warrior who loves meeting and interacting with cyclists from all over the World. A native of Canada, Darryl realized that he needed to relocate in order to cycle year round so he uprooted his family and moved them to Austin, Texas….and then again to Grenada, West Indies.
Along the way, Darryl has been involved in many different industries and locations. So many, that we couldn’t let him list them all here for fear of running too far down the page.
His cycling blog, http://lovingthebike.com, has become a favorite digital media hub for bike lovers around the world. He is also the owner of the Caribbean first and only bicycle cafe, Mocha Spoke. Additionally, he is one of the founders of the popular weekly Twitter chat, #bikeschool….and is often involved with various other projects related to cycling.
When not hard at work juggling all his cycling sites and business, this devoted husband, father of three, and avid cyclist can be found riding those crazy island roads of Grenada, or conversing with clients and fans on Twitter, Facebook, and so many other funky cool places.
As you listen to the shows, you will hear that Darryl is a super laid back guy. Well he is, but he does get stressed out sometimes, just like the rest of us. When he does, he goes into his Chihuahua mode (you know those little dogs)., running around, back and forth until he gets back to his normal chillen self.

The culture we have does not make people feel good about themselves. And you have to be strong enough to say if the culture doesn’t work, don’t buy it. Create your own.

……….Ok a couple of little secrets about Victor. His first business in the cycling world was when he was 8 years old. Victor and some friends would ride their bikes off a ramp into the lake behind his house for fifty cents a ticket…….
He has a weakness for bitter chocolate and bitter beer. Loves spending time with my wonderful family; hiking, camping, traveling or just hanging out together.
