    In the past I have quite honestly found it difficult to followup with what has gone in the professional road cycling field. And the only place you can find out what has gone on is either the news on your television or by purchasing the papers next morning and finding out that way.

    Theres a lot of nice looking helmets on the market, and theres a wide range of brands to choose from. And I’ve from the beginning I’ve always have had Kask Mojito which has been superb. And has served me well protecting my skull twice from my two spills last year. So purchasing new kit from Rapha along with a new road bike I will be needing a new…[Read more]

    Friday the 13th, the mythical ‘bad luck’ date which was nearly proven on a busy main road roundabout where my rear tyre slipped out. Thankfully I had someone who was watching over me and keeping me away from kissing the Tarmac again.

    Going to Arundel, West Sussex again to go on the flat straights, then up the small climb to a point where I took a…[Read more]

    Any roadie will know and understand how important it is to carry the essentials like spare inner-tubes and tools as such. But carrying them in your jersey pocket can be a pain, and can cause you to have things either falling out of your pocket, or in my opinion not looking neat and tidy.

    Winter here on the Sussex countryside roads are somewhat treacherous with leaves covering the roads with other unwanted slippery stuff that doesn’t go well with such thin and not much grippy tires. And it was shown by the recent accident where I slipped on oil going around a corner and coming off the bike again.

    When it comes to purchasing a new road bicycle you really have to dig deep and start to research all of the positivity and also the negatives of it because end of the day it’s going to be a big investment to yourself.

    So after couple of months of researching frames I’ve finally decided what I’m going to be going for and that will be the new…[Read more]
