Yesterday, we took a trip to the ExCeL center in London, to visit the London Bike Show. This is an annual trade show, and we were excited to see what we’d discover this year.. One of the first things we saw was Guy Martin’s speed machine, the one he managed to achieve 112mph on… Of […]

On a balmy Tuesday evening, we had the pleasure of entertaining over 200 guests at Herne Hill velodrome who joined us and Sir Chris Hoy to celebrate the joy of summer riding.  Four lucky groups of competition winners had the chance to ride with Chris, and he spoke to riders as they circled the track […]
