When I first started cycling like most I wasn’t a fan of hills, the ones near me in Surrey even scared me a little. However after cycling over three mountain ranges and many hills to get across Canada I found I enjoyed climbing hills on my bike and I now embrace the challenge. Watch the video to find out how to better deal with hills so you can learn to love them too.
Did you know you can rent Brompton bikes all around the UK? I didn’t either until recently and I decided to make the most of it to get a chance to take a new kind of bike for a spin. My first attempt at renting a Brompton on a visit to Manchester failed but there’s a Brompton rental locker (yes they live in lockers) near where I live here in London. So on a beautiful sunny day I went and picked up the Brompton I’d reserved online and headed home with it for the weekend. It turned out to be very handy to have a spare bike in the house because Nathan had a problem with the wheel of his commuter bike. It amazes me there’s a bike out there we can both ride. Check out the video to see what riding a Brompton is all about.
