In search of Peter Sagan

Inspired by the Boddington’s canal advert and 60s tv series White Horses, we decided to visit the (now triple) world champion’s home country and set off to do a small tour of Slovenia, putting off the hilly bit by starting from Venice. The bikes arrived safely in their cardboard boxes, courtesy of Easyjet and the […]

Cycling in the Hebrides – a bit...

I thought I’d spend a bit of time copying and pasting, to recount my week touring in the Inner and Outer Hebrides at the start of June 2017, and the nights are still dark, so, if you’re bored, or a just interested in reading a bit of a story (I say a bit, this is […]

Derek 15th in Tour of Britain in PB

Derek 15th in Tour of Britain in PB

How can this be? I hear you cry. He is always at the back, has mudguards and a saddle bag containing a bike shop set of tools and spares. This Tour started back in the winter of 2001-2. A change of jobs took me away from my involvement men’s lacrosse (Who knew that?).I had turned […]

Picos de Europa cycle tour May 2016

Bikes aren’t just training tools for battering each other with. They are a fantastic mode of transport for exploring new environments.  So, after a shortish tour around Lyon and the Vercors region of France last year, Ann and I decided to make a trip to the spectacular Picos de Europa mountains in northern Spain.  A […]

Le Tour 2014 – what a weekend!!...

Le Tour 2014 – what a weekend!! (A bit of a megablog – the directors cut)

Part 1 – The Journey to the Tour I had an idea. The idea was to forget the car and cycle to the top end of Yorkshire, then spend the weekend cycling to points on the Tour circuit to watch. I wanted to camp, be self-sufficient and unsupported and take some camera gear, so opted […]

Eureka 200km

Eureka 200km

This is an annual event which starts in Cheadle heads out to “The Mills” then down to Bangor on Dee across to Astbury, near Congleton, and finally back to the start. I have ridden it a few times now and it always seems to rise to the challenge of making Audax events uncertain in their […]

EMILY WINS AT TAMESIDE!!!!!... both went to the Tameside crit event tonight... 7 ladies entered mixture of cat 2-4. Emily did her fair share on the front. Jumped off a couple of times but the group did pull back. Emily won the prime at lap 10. Group stayed together until 2 laps when Emily jumped and stayed away to take the win!! As for me I am awful at cornering as expected... lost everyone after every corner then managed to get back on. Finished a miserable 4th but great experience and at least I now know what to work on over winter.... 🚴🏼‍♀️🚴🏼‍♀️🚴🏼‍♀️🚴🏼‍♀️ Emily Jane Martin ... ’Expand’’Hide’

Hi, I am interested in coming to cycle with you, is there a beginners group or one that isn’t quite as fast to gauge what ability I am at and if I am quick enough at all. I can do about 30 miles comfortably but would like to join a club to improve my pace. ... ’Expand’’Hide’

I know what an Altruistic bunch some of you are, and I have benefited from this. As my kit rail will testify. However I’m looking for cold hard cash for the following items.

- Michelin pro 4 service course.
700 x 25
Too wide for my Dave Lloyd, lots of wear left.
£25 the pair.

- Campagnolo Khamsin front wheel, smooth and true. (No QR skewer). Wear holes still visible.
£20
