The Puncture That Wasn’t A Puncture

I know, I'm just as confused as you are. If you read my Weekend Ride post a few weeks ago, you'll know that just before completing the ride I had a puncture in my front wheel. Well, I thought that was the case. It was certainly flat and I was riding on the rim of... Continue Reading →

When On Honeymoon…

Sun, sea and sand... and a copy of Mountain Biking UK. I know, I know, it's my honeymoon, I should be off doing incredible things and enjoying the sun, sea and sand as much as I can. However, that doesn't stop me buying the latest copy of Mountain Biking UK and enjoying reading all about... Continue Reading →

​Lack of Riding

Having a bit of a break every now and then can be a good thing, at least that's what I tell myself when I've not been on the bike for a while. Now, I'll be honest as much as I love riding bikes there are some occasions where I end up not riding at all.... Continue Reading →

Bike Stuff

Every cyclist collects bike stuff. That is just a simple fact. The odd component here and there, a pair of shorts you don’t use but can’t throw away. Tyres for bikes you don’t even own anymore. Ok, that last one might be a little extreme. I didn’t realise how much of a ‘bike stuff’ collector... Continue Reading →

I’m Back on the Mountain Bike!

Finally! I'm back on my favourite bike doing my favourite type of cycling. Ok, it was a fairly steady ride, but it did involve some dry dusty trails and that to me is perfection. It was last weekend on a slightly cloudy Sunday afternoon. I was feeling a little bit tired, slightly stressed but I... Continue Reading →

It could be work, day to day life, or you just need a break from everything. I'm sure we can all relate in one way or another. For me, cycling is one of... Continue Reading →

Keeping It Clean

A clean bike is a fast bike. The first time I heard this I was working in the bike industry and one of my colleagues said it out loud when looking at his beautiful cross country hardtail he'd just cleaned up and serviced. I had never really considered this before but it has stuck with... Continue Reading →

Training… Or Trying To

Doesn't life just get in the way of the important things? Recently I've been training for a Sportive that a friend and I are taking part in. The problem is that everything seems to get in the way of it, life, work and anything in between. Granted I'm sure my enthusiasm has dwindled on the... Continue Reading →

Am I A Fair Weather Cyclist?

I ask myself this question fairly regularly. In my head, I like to think that I'll go out riding regardless of what the weather is doing. But in reality, I'm checking and double checking the weather before I head out of the door. So, by that definition, I am a fair-weather cyclist. However, just to... Continue Reading →

New Bike Day

Is there a better day? I have recently treated myself to a new track bike. Well, it's not brand new, but new to me. If you've read my previous article about track cycling you'll know that I've recently taken up the discipline and passed my accreditation. No point passing something and then not continuing with...
