  • Why do cyclists make better partners?

    We’re not saying that you should only ever date cyclists, or that your life will be forever miserable if you don’t... however, what we are saying is that next time you’re on “Match.com” and there’s no mention of cycling in their biography, you should most definitely not match!

From then, he began doing rides every weekend, met lots of great people, many of who are now good friends – “some from the early days are still riding with me now!”

  • Bikepacking with The Original Fat Lad

    The outdoors has always been a major interest for me from as far back as I remember, and with my diary now being crazy, finding time just to get on the bike is always a challenge. So camping and being at one with the elements has taken a back seat for some time, until now.
