Guest Post: 2017 Sportives: my cycling year so far –by @eggynewydd

Dan

This year I set myself a challenge to ride as many cycling events as I could. When attempting to compare them, it’s a fairly subjective business once you’ve gone beyond the cold hard Strava stats. In the end I settled on the following criteria: 1 - Ambience Riding companions Scenery Friendliness of fellow riders and … Continue reading Guest Post: 2017 Sportives: my cycling year so far –by @eggynewydd

Guest Post: Not another 100 Climbs – by @GarethEnticott

I have a confession. I don't like the series of 100 Greatest Climbs books, particularly the new Wales book. Its nothing personal, but it's a couple of things.
