Meet the riders


Rupert works at our Contact Centre and he has been reviewing bikes for a while for our blog. This time, however, he passed on the baton to his daughter. After looking for a good few months for a specific Road Bike for my 11 year old Daughter Marley, I found out that we would be […]

It’s been a while since I put pen to paper so to speak so here’s an update on what I’ve been up to over the last few months. Having done the usual annual pilgrimage to France with a group of fellow Wheelers in April this stood me in good stead for the upcoming Road Racing […]

New Year’s Day started with the traditional club 10 mile time trial. This had an 11am start so not too early and it would ease the hangover in for the day. This race is usually a bit of a fun effort and myself and other members choose this year to do the race on our […]

Three rounds of the London League Cyclo Cross, a decent amount of commuting and several trips to Roehampton University basically wrapped this month up with no chance of running or swimming! Over 500 miles commuting on my BMC SLX Race Master and Gary Fisher Fixie made good base mile training for the weekends racing. For […]

Winter certainly happened this month, I had to get the lights, leg warmers, over shoes and the winter gloves out to combat the freezing morning commutes into work! A good amount of Cyclo Cross, commuting, running and a technique session in the pool this month as the weekly turbo sessions took a back seat due […]

September started with a usual week of commuting, a couple of sessions in the pool and a Turbo. The weekend took on a different turn with the English version of the Paris-Roubaix – the Tour of the Cornfields, 60 miles off road (10 on road). This was a Cyclo Cross Sportive, which could be easily […]

August saw a welcome return to Triathlon with a Half Ironman at the end of the month with the Mid Sussex Triathlon Club. Racing continued in Time Trials with the Anerly BC 50, a club 14.5 Hilly and the end of season club Hill Climb. There was also more swimming, running and some Cyclo Cross […]

Well it’s been another busy month of racing, getting back into the Time Trials. A little less of the running after the Ironman, but a couple of good sessions back in the pool as well as a couple of Personal Best’s in Time Trials. This month’s focus was to be on my time in the […]

Well it all started over a few beers Christmas 2008, where Andy, a fellow cyclist told me about the Lanzarote Ironman. Even more beers later we had agreed to start training to do the event in 2010. When the light of day had come I then realised that I had never done a triathlon before […]

I have been cycling for about the last 8 years and worked for Evans for 5 years where I have been able to encompass my passion (or obsession) within my working day. The riding I like the most is racing, pushing myself to the limit especially in Time Trials, myself against the clock trying to […]
