There are a few hardcore riders who slog it out 12 months a year, but for many people, the biggest gains in fitness are to be made over summer – when the sun is shining and the rain is mainly staying away. Getting fitter definitely means feeling better, inside and out – and you’ll notice […]

Tomorrow, the Tour de France begins in Britain – and we are EXCITED. So excited, that we’re not sure we will be able to concentrate for the next 3 weeks.  If you feel the same, we’ve prepared a note for your boss, which clearly explains the situation – it’s severity, and the cure. Here it […]

With the biggest bike race in the WORLD (like, ever) set to launch with a bang in Yorkshire on Saturday, the local residents have been impressively busy creating advice videos and friendly jingles to welcome the peloton to God’s own country. We’re pretty impressed with their antics, which show that the #OddOnes spirit is well […]

The #OddOnes know there is no such thing as too many bikes. There are so many different ways of enjoying cycling, it seems a shame to miss out because you’ve not got a bike for the discipline. N+1 is the Velominati equation for the perfect number of bikes to have – where ‘N’ is the […]

‘Some of us shave our legs’ is the line in our recent #OddOnes TV ad which lists the interesting quirks found in cyclists, and the shaving of male legs never fails to drum up conversation. Of course, for many (Not all! I’ve seen some hairy legged girls on bikes in my time) female cyclists, shaving […]

With Father’s Day just around the corner, we know that lots of Dads out there will be looking forward to a weekend of being treated extra specially nicely. To help the Fathers among you prepare for the big day, we’ve taken the opportunity to draft a pre-Father’s day wish list for you. Just edit the […]
