Re: Todays ride

A long awaited return ride down the beach last night. I think this was first beach ride of 2019 and boy have I missed it! https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48354632446_d06f102c05_c.jpg 20190722_185958 by Jeff Price , on Flickr https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48354760607_12668b288a_c.jpg 201907...

Re: Todays ride

A good couple of laps of the Great Orme yesterday. My main reason for heading out was to cheer the 'dots' who's been riding the Pan Celtic Race from Inverness. I must admit I've been totally inspired by these riders who took on the 840 mile and 1480 mile course. The first place in the 1480 mile race...

Good read! I'm usually found on: 1, Genesis Croix de Fer 10 (2016) with an SP Dynamo front hub. for the past few months I've been running 43mm GravelKings which cushions the blow nicely. I mainly use this for my commute but I've also had the odd overnighter on it which tbh I should do more of! 2. Sa...

Re: “Best” cycling waterproof trousers

I'm a fan of Gore Bike Wear and I've just bought a couple of new pants a few months ago. One is the Gore C5 which I think are spot on, very breathable and love it when the water droplets trickle down them. The other is a lighter pair which I think are from the Gore Running range. There seem good for...

I've been lucky enough to receive some free kit over the last few years, from bags (yes Apidura ;) ) and bags from a few others too, an vaguely exciting bike and some other bits and bobs.
