Having just relocated from London to Bristol I decided to make the most of being so close to Wales, so I packed my panniers and off I went for a short 2 night bike tour. For my mini tour of Wales I decided to keep the milage low and put the bike computer away and […]
I was there for the first of the series, which included things such as how to do an M check of your bike, how to fix a puncture and know which innertube you should buy. The great thing about the course is the instructor gives a talk and then it’s hands-on time so you can try yourself, the best way to learn. Rutland has bikes on hand that you can practice on or you can use your own bike if you like.
Kit and Ace is a Canadian company who caught my eye when I saw this photo on Twitter Cycling portrayed as normal, including a smartly dressed women!

I’ve been riding the Copenhagen Wheel for just over a month and thought I would share with you my thoughts on e-bikes (a video about the wheel is coming soon). Until you’ve ridden one it’s really hard to appreciate them and all the possibilities they offer. If you ever get the chance to give one […]
The Brompton folding bike was invented in West London and is still built in West London today in their new factory. When Brompton asked if I would like to visit their factory, being the curious person I am I had to say yes. I was pretty impressed to see how much of the bike is […]
I read about the Vätternrundan about a year ago, I’m not big on sportifs but there was something about this one, a 300km cycle around a lake in Sweden, that captured my imagination. So I read up on how to get a spot, marked my calendar with a reminder of the registration date and come […]
So it was finally time, all the prep and training done past lunch had been had, we were off to the start for our 22:40 start time. Watch part 2 to see how it all went, see me in all my sleep deprived glory and find out if the ride is as well organised as […]
