As part of our Megavalanche preparations we headed up to Kielder Forest in Northumberland a few weeks ago to check out this new style race format, the 661 Gravity Enduro series. Enduro races are basically timed downhill runs, with linking stages (non timed)- all your times are then combined to give you a position. A […]

In January, we have asked our friends, fans, followers and customers to send us photos, stories of their first cycling memories. Over a hundred submissions have arrived and we enjoyed all them – but because we’re not selfish, we wanted to share the best ones with you. So in the next couple of weeks and […]

The London Bikeathon is taking place this Sunday 26th June. Entries are now closed for this year’s event.

I’ve received a request from the guys who build the man-made trails at Cannock Chase for a bit of help. Every year we organise one of our Ride It events in Cannock and over this time we have seen the expansion of the man-made trails. Last year we even used parts of the trails on […]

In less than a week, the City Race Series criterium race series will commence – Manchester Chill Factor store manager Marc Theunissen gives you a quick preview of the races After a year and a half of planning, we’re finally here. The City Race Series has been in the pipeline for way too long – […]

The Cooker is Charge Bikes first foray in to the 29” wheeled field of our sport.
