My Biggest Ride Ever… Completed!

I can't believe I've done it! My main event/ride of 2019, it has been my focus for the last 10 months or so. As most of you know, last weekend, I took part in a cycling event up in Yorkshire, starting in Thirsk and winding its way through the Yorkshire Dales. I am so pleased... Continue Reading →

Less Than A Week To Go

It really isn't long now until my main ride of the year. 4 days to be exact. I'm feeling pretty happy about it, don't get me wrong I still have worries about not finishing or struggling half way round and not enjoying it. But I can't let those thoughts get the better of me now.... Continue Reading →

Summer Riding

Who doesn't love riding in the bright sunshine and the warmer temperatures? I know I do. Any excuse to get out on the bike in shorts and a jersey and I'm there. In fact, I used to say hotter the better until I went out for a 70 odd mile ride in 30 °C heat.... Continue Reading →

My S-Works – The First Ride

The first ride of any new bike is always a wonderful occasion. I was extremely excited to get out on my new S-Works Tarmac, although I was also a little apprehensive. I was a bit worried that I wouldn't be able to tell the difference between my old Tarmac and my shiny new one. Still,... Continue Reading →

The Weekend Ride: Caunton

Some very pretty scenery around a place when we don't ride often enough. We set out from Will's after a few text messages the night before organising where we'd ride. We both agreed that we were slightly bored or riding the same roads. The issue was that we didn't normally have time to go further afield.... 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 →

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 →
