New Year – New Bike!

I’ve always been a bit of a cyclocross fan (despite there being a spot fine for even mentioning it aloud in the office). I’ve race the Three Peaks three times in the last 15 years and I’ve done local ‘cross races on and off throughout that time. I’ve always been a bit of a purist […]

Perpetual Motion

Like many people who envelope themselves in the world of two wheeled fanaticism, I set myself an all-together too familiar new year’s resolution: ‘Ride my bike more’ January brings with it a sense of optimism. The promise of twelve months where the two-wheeled possibilities are endless – so many routes to ride, places to see […]

Temperature Regulation

There’s one thing that the last couple of years of odd weather has meant to me – not the thought that we’ve broken the planet’s weather; that’s not in doubt – but it’s the far more trivial poser of ‘what to wear?’ It used to be that summers were mostly short sleeve Lycra jerseys and […]

Premier Interbike: Mark’s Blog

Interbike is over and we are just killing time for a day before we fly back to the UK. For Chipps this was Interbike number 17, for Jon it was his first. I’ve now done three. Vegas is an amazing city, but don’t let the use of that adjective fool you into thinking it’s necessarily […]

Hope you’ve not missed me too much!

Hi all, Well I’m counting down the days. It’s my final week of being a lady of leisure. Looking forward to being back in the office and seeing everyone again. The ten months have flown since I handed over the Subscription reigns to the wonderful Jamie Ware and what a super job he’s doing. Sounds […]

Nearly in Austria, but still in Bavaria

Other people’s trails

  I reckon 98.5%* of my riding is done on trails in a 20km radius of where I ride, because we’re lucky that locally there’s enough variation and quality of riding that justifying travelling out of the valley seems pointless. That same variation and quality also means I get to spend a fair amount of […]

You don't need training, or drugs to ride fast. Just get chased by lightning instead!
