Work Experience Ben has done a ride! He tells us how he felt and how it compares to his local riding.
It’s time to get the skills to pay the bills – or at least to prevent any serious glacier based incidents
Our new gravity enduro correspondent would like to introduce himself…
Jenny’s never raced a mountain bike – what better introduction than the Megavalanche then?
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
This is my 17th Interbike – and I’ve yet to master it…

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 […]
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 […]
Round two of the 661 UK Gravity Enduro in Kielder came about really quickly for me, I got a new bike (Transition Covert) from the guys at UK importers Surf-Sales only a few days before the race plus we’re also straight off to Vancouver for a month of riding right after the race too, (yeah, […]
