'Thanks for joining me. We haven’t got long. We only have 3 kilometres together. That’s 15 minutes. I’ve been doing this for some time. An hour. A day. A week. It doesn’t really matter anymore. We’ve all lost track of time, haven’t we? We’re just going around in circles.’

Cyclical  sees Michael cycle on an exercise bike in his home for 4 hours, the time it would take to get from where he lives outside Nottingham (where he spent lockdown) to Derby and back again. 

He will cycle the equivalent distance of 50km and audience members will be invited to join him for 15 minutes at a time to accompany him on his journey and share stories of bikes and bike rides and the cyclical nature of working from home. He is cycling for work. He is cycling from home to Derby. He is busy going nowhere.
