    Choose your own adventure
    11 Sep 2018 / Ben Gray
    Not all adventures have to be epic. You don’t need to scale a mountain or spend days in a jungle to have an adventure worth sharing. Sometimes it’s the little ones, the weekenders that bring the biggest smile to your face. Ever since a friend of mine moved to just outside of Bristol, I’ve wanted to ride there from Portsmouth. So...

    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.

    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...

    16 Jul 2018 / Berny Breen

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...
