Beardy’s Caravan captures the unique spirit of one of cycling’s true characters. Part adventurer and part enigma, there is only one Beardy McBeard - and only one Beardy’s Caravan. Welcome aboard.
"Welcome to Beardy's Caravan. Join me as I chase some of cycling's biggest races around the world. See this beautiful sport from my point of view, through my photos and the stories behind them."- Beardy McBeard.
Get a new perspective on cycling news through photographer Beardy McBeard's iconic photos and humorous musings. Each day of the Caravan he brings you the behind-the-scenes story of his adventures chasing grand tours, pro bike riders, race souvenirs and, mostly, crostini.
Instantly recognisable to thousands of cycling fans all over the globe - Beardy's famous for not only his beard, but for his well-meaning run-ins with the local constabulary, for his sing-a-longs with frenzied cycling crowds (often when he has no idea what is being sung) and for being a man of the people - joining his fans at roadside for a cup of vino and a hearty slice of jamon as he shares his passion for bicycle racing with anyone who will listen.
You'll find Beardy perched in highly precarious places, balancing on rock outcrops, leaning over cliffs, climbing trees, swinging off street bollards - whatever it takes to capture the passion, suffering, history and pageantry of this great sport. You’ll also find him in your inbox - if you sign up.
