Tour of Yorkshire 2014 – From tragic to magic!!

After cycling from London to Cannes in 2013, we decided it was about time we got our bikes out for another two-wheeled challenge. This time we found an event that was being held on much more familiar ground – the Tour of Yorkshire. Hot off the back of the Tour de France Grand Depart, we […]

An Epic Cycling Sportive!

My cycling relationship continues to build each month. As part of my training for The London-Paris 2012 by HotChillee, I took part in a Training Ride last Sunday called The Epic. It was a stunning day, although pretty cold at first, starting at 7am. The 180km route took in the most beautiful villages of Surrey […]

The London-Paris 2011 – Cycling Event

On 23rd – 25th June, I cycled from London-Paris. As I write this it seems very simple, but the emotion, pain and elation that came with it is almost impossible to explain. I had been training for months leading up to this event and, since cycling is a new sport for me, I was pretty […]

Intimidation of Sports Specific Shops

I first noticed it when I went to a running specialist shop, and then it was amplified when I started road cycling and had to go to a specialist cycling shop. I can only explain it as intimidation by lack of knowledge. Instead of just happily browsing, I found myself feeling nervous and slightly shifty. […]

New Found Respect

I’ve always been a pretty courteous driver. Coming from Leeds, everyone lets each other out into traffic, giving way here and there and generally being quite nice to each other. Not sure whether its a good or bad thing but I’ve brought these habits with me to London, despite them being completey lost on the crazy drivers we have down here!

Travel, events, adventure!

I have just returned from 4 days of Mountain Biking in Ibiza. It was a last minute arrangement and I really didn’t know what to expect. The first day consisted of a ‘leisurely’ 3.5 hour guided ride, we explored the very beautiful north of the island, but it was not exactly relaxing. This was just a […]

Gadgets Galore

I’m the kind of person who likes to ‘see’ results. That is, numbers on paper proving that things have gotten better. When I started training for the Blenheim Triathlon, I needed a way of seeing my improvement, not just relying on the fact that I felt fitter. That’s where my iPhone came in. Being a […]
