A list of things to look out for: Obviously the theme has changed somewhat. The ad-bar at the top means Premier users lose that completely if they reduce the ads. The black bar at the top, the “user bar” has a dropdown menu with links to your new profile area. Here you can upload an […]
Since returning from Canada and the World Champs Mountain Bike experience the Potters have been busy as ever on the AQR guiding front. Ian is starting to feel the effects from not only guiding full time this year and taking up more of the work load during the months I was ill, but now lo […]
Chipps says goodbye to 12 years of Interbike (and exploding fountains) in Las Vegas. Next year, LA.
19 weeks and 5 days have passed since that day. Today I went back out on my bike for a proper ride. I awoke to a beautiful day, the sun was shining, there was a cool crispness to the air and I knew I had to go. It started with a bit of an uncomfortable […]
If you don’t have to go to places like Eurobike for a living and you’re a bike nut, I guess you could be envious of myself and Chipps. The reality though really isn’t that much fun – Eurobike is massive!! 13 halls, all the size that you could easily have an entire 5 a side […]

It’s been coming up for 2 years since the great unexpected new site and forum incident of Christmas 2008. In that time we’ve been tweaking the site here and there, and leveraging in the Premier system. But the time has come that we need to do a bigger revamp to make the code more performance […]
The last three days have been a blur. The transition from Carlisle to Slaidburn was one of the most incredible cycles of my life, with no exaggeration. The ride was by no means the longest we’ve taken part in, but with regards to duration and sheer physicality it remains the closest I’ve come to being […]
Christ on a bike. What an interesting few days… Scotland is finished. Done. Dusted. No more. At around half past three this afternoon, we pushed through Gretna and over the border. All well and good I hear you say. Very bittersweet though – just a couple of miles down the road we came across a […]
Sunday 24th July: John O’Groats – Tongue
I like things to be well oiled and smooth. My bike, my plans, my groin, etc.. And the first day of riding was exactly that. Kind of.
