The Weekend Ride: Glorious Sunshine

Sun, glorious sun! A ride where I needed to wear my sunglasses. A ride where I didn't need to have 3 million layers on. And a ride where my bike was still clean by the end of it. It was a short ride. Before setting off, Josh had come over and we'd gone through trying... Continue Reading →

It’s Warming Up

Finally! We are definitely on the edge of winter and nearly into spring. The evenings are getting lighter; I'm now able to go to and from work without turning my car headlights on. Ok, bad analogy, I don't turn them on, my car does it for me. But still. The temperature is increasing too! Over... Continue Reading →

Overshoes Are So Underrated

One of the best things I have ever invested in, other than waterproof socks, is overshoes. Especially for when the temperature drops. For a long time, I'd never bothered with overshoes, until I started going out for longer rides in cooler temperatures. Don't get me wrong, these weren't freezing temperatures, I don't do those on...

The Weekend Ride: A Café Run

My favourite type of ride. It happened completely by accident and we didn't plan on heading for a coffee. Although, from now, I think that should always be the plan. Josh and I decided that we would go for a ride. The weather was bright, chilly but the sun was out. I headed over to... Continue Reading →

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. We played around with the saddle height and position for a little bit to make sure he was happy and comfortable. Nothing worse than being... Continue Reading →

Bike Shopping

No, unfortunately, it's not for me. My friend Will has decided that he fancied a new bike. Last week was less riding and more looking. We decided that we'd go at the weekend and start looking at some different bikes. Obviously, Will had done some looking beforehand, sensible really. He had a rough idea of what... Continue Reading →

Hardtails

9 times out of 10 if I'm going out on the mountain bikes then my Santa Cruz Bronson, my full suspension bike, usually gets picked. However, on recent rides, I've been taking my Orange hardtail out for a spin. I love a good looking hardtail, especially ones with a good amount of travel up front.... Continue Reading →
