Tom Hallam-Gravells

Tom is a Medieval Studies masters graduate which he now puts to good use by writing about all-things bikes for GCN - because everyone knows bikes were a medieval invention, right?


A relative late-comer to the sport, he first discovered cycling back in 2016 and has never looked back. In between riding his bike and following Grimsby Town (the best football team in the world), he works as an Online Production Editor, creating content for the GCN website.
