    My Cycling Journey - Rebecca Clarke
    14 Jan 2019 / 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...

    My Cycling Journey - Nassrin Chamanian
    14 Jan 2019 / Nassrin Chamanian
    I was about 8 years old when I learned to ride a bike. I can't quite remember how it happened - one minute I was on stabilisers, the next I was flying free. Well, almost free. At the age of 8, I was only allowed to ride around the block but that was a big distance for a small person. My beloved Raleigh Denim was second-hand out of the local...

    My Cycling Journey - Stephanie Kitchen
    14 Jan 2019 / Stephanie Kitchen
    I’ve always cycled a bit as a mode of transport, for commuting, going to uni or for just getting around 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...

    My Cycling Journey - Kirsty Smith
    14 Jan 2019 / 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...

    My Cycling Journey - Sarah Pain
    14 Jan 2019 / Sarah Pain
    My cycling journey has been rather intermittent – apart from a few brief dalliances as a teenager I was a bit late to the party, only really getting into it well into my 30s! I must have learnt to ride a bike as a young child but I actually don’t remember the learning bit. I do vaguely remember getting a shiny red bike for my birthday...

    Andy Tennant’s grooming rules for winter cycling
    19 Oct 2018
    I won’t lie. Winter is miserable. After a five- or six-hour ride in the rain and wind (or even as short as 30 minutes some days) I often wonder how braving these elements on such a regular basis has had an impact on the look and feel of my skin. Like many people, I never used to be that concerned with skincare. However, since I've...
