On a recent trip to Bath for the weekend Nathan and I decided to cycle the 200km back as training for the upcoming Vatternrundan ride in Sweden. On problem, it would be on my carbon bike which doesn’t have a rack for panniers and I would have an overnight bag to get back with. With perfect timing I was contacted to see if I was interested in testing and reviewing the new Lowe Alpine Aeon ND backpack. Watch to see how I got on cycling almost 200km with a bag on my back:
When I triggered a discussion on Twitter in November about bib shorts Velocio reached out to me to see if I would be interested in trying their solution to every women cyclist (and some men too) problem with having to undress to use the toilet when wearing cycling bib shorts. I’m always very happy when I hear about a company thinking about women’s needs when it comes to cycling and so I was keen to give their bib shorts a try. It’s been a few months and I’ve worn them inside on the trainer and out on longer rides. Watch to find out my thoughts on Velocio’s Signature Fly Bib Shorts for women.
I currently have 2 bikes here in the UK and one at my Dad’s in Canada. They are all very different and serve different purposes. My Brodie Argus 1.0 is my workhorse, I use it for touring, commuting and running errands around town. I’ve spent so many happy miles on this bike, had many adventures and have properly bonded. I’m not the fastest on my Brodie (it isn’t the lightest of bikes!) but I am most confident on it. Watch to learn more about why I love this bike.
