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 […]

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!

Guest Blog: Ally at the 661 Gravity Enduro at Kielder

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, […]

Well, I AM going to be on holiday...

Indulging a passion

I’m off on holiday next week – going to visit the girlfriend’s parents in Germany, but first – we’re going to be going to Belgium. Yep, we’re off to see some cyclocross! I did exactly the same last year, and wrote about it in our blog and really enjoyed myself. I have shockingly little experience […]
