Tinkerer, builder of wheeled and other interesting contrivances.
I make things for folks who come to me with projects to make life easier for them- hand cycles, handi-capped assist stuff.
Have made @260 'bikes' lifetime-wise, but it's a hobby, not a business. Have made some wonderful friends in the Kinetic Sculpture Race world, and Burning Man shows much promise...
Crotchetter, punster and Mark Twain afficianado. Hikin' ridin'
helpin' out buddies (or buddies to be)and buildin'.... That's most days....

I must say Mr. Whymcycles, of all the wonderful captures that fine folks share on flickr, your photos top the list of entertaining images of any I have seen. Sure, there are outstanding photographic images by suburb photographers with fine equipment, but your shared moments of kinetic machinery just interest me far more that even, well.... athletic female nudes. Now, that's saying a million, if I say so myself."

"Peter is an icon in our town. Peter actually *is* referred to as "the bike wizard" by local kids. He's a walking encyclopedia of bike building knowledge, and I don't mean those boring "real" bikes. He is also a very friendly and generous soul that has inspired many with his creativity and zest for life."

"Spend even a short time with Peter and you will realize that he is actually a wizard."
