My name is David Charles and I probably met you out somewhere. Thanks for stopping by!

I’m the writer of BBC radio sitcom Foiled. I also write for The Bike Project, Thighs of Steel and the Elevate Festival. I do bike touring and nature walks. I also have a reputation for stupid experiments, rejection therapy, and solidarity with refugees. Check the blog for more.

I don’t do social media, but I’d love to stay in touch somehow.

If you want to passively absorb my wit and wisdom, I’d be thrilled if you sign up for my Friday newsletter. For 23% of readers, it’s the highlight of their week.

The best way for you to contact me is by sending me an SMS or Whatsapp (you’ve got the number) or drop me a message right here:
