An extra one million women with their bums on saddles is the goal that has been set by British Cycling. This week the guys at BC invited us to a morning of coffee and pastries – and they also told us all about their new vision to get 1 million more women on bikes by 2020. […]

Last year we announced we were going to be working with the charity Special Olympics Great Britain to help them launch their first ever cycling programme. Our customers have been donating money by rounding up purchases they make online, and we were really excited when we heard that the first sessions are now ready to […]

Here we are at blog number 3 of my investigation into the world of power training using the CycleOps PowerTap. I’ve been busy trying to use the data to work on my weaknesses (as well as doing a bit to keep my strengths strong). We’ve already established that, either through nature or nurture, I’m currently […]

I’ve been using the CycleOps Powertap wheels for about 2 weeks now – it’s shot by and I’ve been busily downloading the data from every ride and busily analysing it at every opportunity.

The store in Queens Road (S23DH) […]

Creators of Mule Bar, Alex and Jimmy tell us how they started out..   “Back in 2002, we were mad on adventure, and desperate to get out and away from the daily grind. We set off up Acongua in the Andes, with a rough plan to later take on one of the 800m Himalayan monsters. […]

  Eurosport commentator David Harmon gives us his low down on the Tour from the front line: I shot a look at Sean Kelly at the precise moment he returned the glance. Christopher Froome, the most aggressive and most important mountain man of Bradley Wiggins’ ‘Black Eagles’ had done more than just force the pace […]
