Born and raised in Ot­tawa, Ont., Matt Surch earned his B.A. in phi­los­o­phy and M.A. in com­mu­ni­ca­tions stud­ies at McGill Uni­ver­sity. A fa­ther of two, he’s an avid car-free cy­clist, blog­ger, con­trib­u­tor, cy­cling club pres­i­dent, event or­ga­nizer, test-rider and pub­lic ser­vant who writes about cy­cling cul­ture and tech­nol­ogy. Surch has nearly 30 years of ex­pe­ri­ence rid­ing and rac­ing bi­cy­cles across many dis­ci­plines, in­clud­ing down­hill, cross-coun­try, road, gravel and cy­clocross. His proud­est cy­cling ac­com­plish­ments in­clude two over­all podi­ums at On­tario’s renowned Paris-to-An­caster Spring Clas­sic. Now pri­mar­ily fo­cused on cy­clocross, he still loves cy­cling up and down moun­tains at a mod­er­ate pace, but prefers rid­ing fast over gnarly ter­rain on drop-bar bikes in a way best de­scribed as #drop­bar­braap.
