Musette Bakery: New Site.

April 11, 2013 | By | 2 Comments

Musette Bakery were one of the principle supporters of our recent BKLA13 trip and kept us fuelled up. I’m a massive fan of their ethos and product and you can read my full interview here. I was also stoked to chow down on the special edition ‘Davey’ cookie that made its way into each registered riders Red Hook Crit goody bag. Fantastic people and fantastic company, give them and your legs some support and get yourself some. Check out their recently redesigned page here.

Beds For Cyclists.

March 27, 2013 | By | 2 Comments

Loving this look of this resource. On our trips there has been too many occasions where we’ve tried to sneak our bike in walking confidently through a hotel lobby making no eye contact as if we we’ve just returned with a Harem. No more!

UK only at the moment but ideal for rides like JOGLE. Check out Beds For Cyclists

Tales Of The Winter Rider

March 26, 2013 | By | No Comments

It’s still dark outside. It might be wet or windy. It is definitely cold. Your bed is warm. For any normal person, there is no decision to be made, just a flicker of consciousness before turning over, pulling up the covers and sinking back into luxurious slumber.

But you are no normal person. You are a cyclist.

Check out Tales of The Winter Ride by Matt Seaton here. His writing is incredible and I count his book, The Escape Artist amongst my top reads. Nice to see him putting in the results in the Spring Series too!

Huck Indies.

February 5, 2013 | By | No Comments

2 of my favourite UK artisans Brothers Cycles and Trakke both feature in Huck’s recent indie series. My readership of Huck wavered a little when there was a lot of quite preachy environmental focused articles, but it’s nice to see them tapping into what made my pick it up of the news stand in the first place.

Strava Geekery

November 14, 2012 | By | 2 Comments

Thanks to Chris and Don i’ve been indulging in some stat geekery courtesy of Velo Viewer and Strava Multiple Ride Map.  The Multiple Ride Map lets you see how your Strave recorded rides map out on a totally interactive map. Some screenshots of mine below. Velo Viewer shows every segment you’ve ever ridden and lets you play around with the data.

Vulpine vs Levis

September 19, 2012 | By | One Comment

We’ve been grateful to be involved closely with both Vulpine and the Levi’s commuter range as they have emerged over the last year.
For me they fulfill different slots in the market. We love Levi’s price point and their adaptation of wardrobe classics to make them more bike friendly as well as their approach to the market from such a big company; yet on the other hand we love Vulpine’s ability to embed technical ability and features so stylishly and emphatically British we also love the personality and passion behind the brand. The guardian decided to debate these merits, check it out here.
