    My Cycling Journey - Stephanie Kitchen
    20 Jul 2018 / Stephanie Kitchen
    I’ve always cycled a bit as a mode of transport, for commuting, going to uni or for just getting round town. But I think I really fell in love with cycling the summer I graduated from uni. Me and my friend Brigid got road bikes and toured the coast of Portugal for 3 weeks. We had no gear (just alllll the ideas) a beaten up map, a couple of...

    Discovering new roads with the Garmin 520 Plus
    17 Jul 2018 / Colin Brand
    Being a runner at heart, Garmin has always been my go-to brand for running watches. I’m onto my third now. Each purchase has been an upgrade on the previous model, with more features, newer technology and more assistance to track and analyse my runs. Each one of my Garmin watches has shared the same design quality and simplicity of use which...

    The Wiggle Mega Meon - The Sunshine and Skids Edition
    17 Jul 2018 / Mike Daniels
    We're in the middle of a long, hot summer. For most riders, the biggest concern of the Mega Meon sportive (aside from endless hills) was staying hydrated. I had been having a great time. That is, until my shocking near- miss. As I approached the last turning off Portsdown Hill Road I was really bombing along. I reached down to cover the brakes...

    My Cycling Journey - Rebecca Clarke
    16 Jul 2018 / Rebecca Clarke
    Like most people, I began cycling as a child. My most vivid memory of cycling at this time was riding in a figure-of-eight repeatedly on my front drive. I also remember going on family cycles when we went on holiday, whizzing around with my parents and annoying security guards with tales of my adventures. What I don’t remember was the...

    The Wiggle Mega Meon
    16 Jul 2018 / Berny Breen
    On Sunday I embarked on my third Wiggle Mega Meon sportive. In previous years I had completed the 'Standard' distance of about 67 miles, then the 'Epic' 100 miles. This year the start line was not too far from my home so I thought that I would raise the bar a little and ride the 'Epic' it as part of an Audax . Audax...

    My Cycling Journey - Kirsty Smith
    12 Jul 2018 / Kirsty Smith
    I discovered cycling as an attempt to combine some of my favourite things - being outdoors, being active, and being with my boyfriend. He’d always been a mountain biker, but started road cycling for fitness (and networking - it turns out cycling really is the new golf). I’d owned a bike as a child, but it had never been a massive part...

    Riding the Étape du Tour
    03 Jul 2018 / Rob Jarman
    When in Rome… Picture the scene. It’s late May. You’ve let the horribly long winter get the better of your riding time and when an unseasonably nice weather spell arrives, you spend it on the beach with your kids and barbecuing as opposed to riding. Then you get a call from the lovely folk at Mavic . I'd been invited to...

    The South Downs Way on a Substance
    29 Jun 2018 / Will Pakes-Geddes
    The South Downs Way. Britain’s first-long distance Bridleway. A hundred miles in total, stretching from England's first capital city, Winchester, all the way to the white chalk cliffs of Eastborne. Lucky for me, it’s right on my doorstep. It's been on the to-do list for a while so this year I finally decided to get on with it...
