Sunday saw us pay homage to what is undoubtedly the most exciting of classic cycling races: Paris-Roubaix. Each year the Rapha team organises this event in honour of ‘The Hell of the North’. We joined a 200+ group of riders around the gravé of North London – the farm tracks, gravelly roads and potholes basically, […]

After realising what I had let myself in for on accepting the ‘challenge’, yes the very same thing tens of thousands of cyclists do every day with no complaint, of riding to work every day, something struck home with me. Spring in England can be cold. It can be very cold. Though luckily we have […]

February started with a week away with the family at Centre Parcs in Elvingdon Forest. It was good to have a break from work but I managed to swim every day and cycle with the family. I also took along my trainers and did a few small runs. Week 2 and it was back to […]

Did you know that just down the road and actually on the MTB route is Horsell Common. This is where the first Martian landed in H. G. Wells in War of the Worlds. Now the request, please stock up on change for food after the ride – we’re looking at over 1000 riders this weekend […]

Spring is just around the corner, the mercury is slowly but constantly rising, we get more and more sunshine and it prompts more and more people to realize that they have got a bike, somewhere in the back of the shed/garage/basement and it’s waiting for to be ridden. So let’s jump onto those neglected saddles […]

In our ongoing mission to get more customers trying and rating product, this year we are providing a selection of bikes to be reviewed over time. Here Shaun Clements tells us about impressions of the BMC Street Fire SSX01 2010 Road Bike. Check out his previous posts, too! Initial impressions Having had my flash new […]

For the past 2 years I’ve been riding a small Demo 7 mark II frame, tricked out to ride downhill.  But half way through last summer I decided it was time for an upgrade, partly due to the frame being a bit too small for me and but mainly because it had been a bit […]

Another pleasant day in the saddle Usually I get to sit in a hotel room on Fridays whilst the boys put out the course. Today,  however, Keith’s knee has been playing up so I got to go out and mark some course, thus reducing the amount of riding he had to do – how nice of […]
