    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...

    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...

    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...

    Adventures with 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...

    Staff Review - Fox Racing MTB kit
    13 Jun 2018 / Nassrin Chamanian
    When Wiggle got hold of the latest MTB gear from Fox Racing , we were eager to see if it would tempt Wiggle Business Analyst and mountain biker Dan Jones away from his usual repurposed old BMX, casual and road kit. First Impressions My expectations were high - I'd already heard great things about Fox Racing from other riders. I was excited at...

  • Getting up to speed on the Zipp 808
    08 Jun 2018 / Nassrin Chamanian
    When Wiggle got hold of a sample pair of the new Zipp 808 wheels , we couldn't think of a better person to test them to their limits than Wills Fuller. He's our Commercial Designer by trade but an ultra-competitive road racer at heart. It’s a Saturday morning. 7.59am...maybe 8.10am. I tend to run late. I pull up into the group. I get...
