A ride with Collie

Aaron Tolley taking his dog Collie for a quick spin across the Chase. Filmed this mid summer but it never got finished so I have thrown it together for them, hope you enjoy it!

Theo Ngubane

Theophillus Ngubane or “Theo” grew up and lives in the Township of Kayamandi in Stellenbosch, South Africa. Theo first fell in love with bicycles and dirt at the Songo.info BMX track that was built in the Township. Last year was his first time racing downhill and having a Downhill bike. In that short time Theo became the first ever black South African to race downhill at a World Championship.

But for Theo riding has nothing to do with the colour of your skin or where you are from, it’s about that pure joy, that amazing feeling only a bicycle can bring and experiences, and bonds you have with others who feel the same way.

The 2014 Nutcracker Altura XC Series hits a snag…

It happens every year; The British MTB calendar is so full of great series and venues it’s inevitable that some of them clash. We just have to make sure the 2014 Nutcracker Altura Series is the best!

All the best,

London to Istanbul within two weeks, overcoming more than 3100km,
30.000m of altitude gain and crossing 14 european borders.
Unsupported, following a route of their choice, day and night, rain or shine,
crossing the whole european continent: We went AWOL with Recep Yeşil and Erik Nohlin on the mighty Transcontinental Race.

  1. “¡Ay caramba!

    This video can’t be played with your current setup”

    It doesn’t elaborate as to what quite what my current setup is? Any ideas why its not working for me?

  2. MELONS, TRUCKS & ANGRY DOGS – the best biking vid for quite a while – I loved it, well done guys:-)

  3. The London to Istanbul ride was most inspiring! Interesting to noter some of their comments about the race not allowing time to engage with the places they passed through. My son Ben was involved for several years with a European Youth Ride they had to be under 25 but came form a wide variety of European countries and backgrounds, they planned a different route each year, through European countries linking with youth eco projects in each place they could find them. The ride was just that a long ride, with frequent stops to enjoy or interact with the places and people they met. He made friends are over Europe and since has ridden through eastern Europe to Istanbul himself. Sometimes its better not to race!

  4. echo the previous post
    .well done Yesil and Eric

  5. Totally agree with previous comments, MELONS, TRUCKS & ANGRY DOGS by far the best biking videos I’ve seen for some time. Engrossing and inspirational. Well done to all involved.
