A BUSY & CONSTRUCTIVE WEEK @RCC

OLD SCHOOL, inappropriate bike & 4mp camera

A few years ago I gave the world of FREE RIDE a whirl. Put some pads on my knees and went full metal stoked. A sobering time spent shitting myself before every new and bike breaking attempt, still, it splits the men from the boys hey ūüėČ RIP Trek, Manitou, Avid BB and...

Riders Cycle Centre. Cycling shorts #1

Established in 2012. Riders Cycle Centre. A dedicated cycle repair shop. Reminisce back to the days before internet shopping and keyboard experts, before the multi floor emporiums of delight. The back street bike repair man. The old pro happy to chat and advice. Happy...

OUR DAY OUT TOGETHER WENT VIRAL.

Back in 2014 my workshop was raided and my Ragley bikes were stolen. Those that know know that they meant a lot to me and they where more than just bikes. Sadly I never saw them again but it wasn’t for the want of trying. So many of you spread the word and...

ME & MY ROCKY MOUNTAIN

JADE & I #MICROADVENTURE

Sometimes planning the unexpected, taking a chance and rolling the dice can result in a gem of an adventure. Grab a map and ride a virgin unchartered trail and see what comes. 

THE DALES EPIC. KNOWN AS THE YD300

For me the YD300 wasn’t so much about the miles or the physical challenge that the Yorkshire Dales delivers in bucket loads but the personal challenge of arranging an ITT bike packing route and ride. The Cairngorm Loop. The Bearbones200. The failed HT550 and the...
