Keeping It Clean

A clean bike is a fast bike. The first time I heard this I was working in the bike industry and one of my colleagues said it out loud when looking at his beautiful cross country hardtail he'd just cleaned up and serviced.

Cycling Freebies

Don't you just love freebies? Especially when they are cycling related! I've been lucky enough to be able to attend a few events where you get some fantastic freebies. The most common place I've found is at the end of a sportive or an organised ride. Typically you get a few things, mainly a finishers... Continue Reading →

Le Tour de France

Training… Or Trying To

Doesn't life just get in the way of the important things? Recently I've been training for a Sportive that a friend and I are taking part in.

Planning A Route

Where to start? Usually with a fresh cup of coffee but I guess it really depends on my mood. Sometimes I just want to get out and ride, and I'll make it up as I go along. This attitude usually means that I'll be on my road bike as it's the quickest way to feed... Continue Reading →
