A New Saddle

I've been looking at the Specialized Power saddle for a while now, as soon as it came out I was curious about it. It didn't help that one of my mates who works at Specialized was singing its praises. The saddle came out a while ago, 2015 to be exact, but it's taken me this... Continue Reading →

The Cyclists List

Don't lie to me, every cyclist has one... It could be a new bike, a shiny new upgrade or some new kit. I know I always have a list of shiny new cycling stuff. New bikes come out every year, upgraded components get released and I can't help but look. But then I think, if... Continue Reading →

First Ride

Will's got his new bike! A Specialized Tarmac. It didn't take long for him to fall in love with it. About 3 laps of the car park to be precise.

The Weekend Ride: Sherwood Pines

I know, back here again, but it's definitely an easy place to go, especially at short notice. Well, I say short notice, I got a text from Josh staying that we should go out to pines but on the hardtails. Something we haven't done in a while. Especially as the bike was sitting in the garage...

Mind Over Matter

The challenge between what your mind is telling you to do and what your body will let you do. Sometimes it's good to let the mind win, other times not so much. This time, it's about the mind winning. Throughout my January challenge, there were a few times that I could have easily not bothered... Continue Reading →
