Hello, my name is Alex Ingram

Online I’ve been nuttyxander since the year 2000. I was once mad-alex but so were many other people. So I twisted to be nuttyxander, and no-one else has been mad enough to follow suit since. You can google me! (don’t)

Having grown up in Edinburgh and gone to university there I left for London via the not particularly lucrative job of book-selling. I’ve worked for Waterstone’s and Apple and then EDItEUR in a series of progressively geeky jobs in the book trade. Now I work in cycling trying to improve conditions such that cycling can be so much more than the preserve of the brave and the willing.

I was in 2013/4 coordinator and vice-chair of my local cycling campaign, hfcyclists part of the London Cycle Campaign, but had to give it up when I moved to Lewisham. I remain a fairly busy activist working with local campaigns (mainly Islington where I work) and with the Cycling Embassy of Great Britain.

This is the site of my original blog and internet presence, but I have also set up a more focused blog to write about cycling and transport in cities called Alex In The Cities.

If you want to be professional you can nag me on LinkedIn or email me using my contact form.

I see this site as a reasonable enough place for me to express my opinions whatever they may be. Half the fun for me is looking back at what I used to think and how I used to express it. I hope that amuses at least one other person. For a more freeform stream of consciousness version of the same, follow me on twitter.

Beyond that, I cycle around, read, listen to podcasts, stare at art and attempt to hold and utilise political views for the good of the world.
