Pro Cycling Season in Australia

Get ready for an overload of pro cyclists awkwardly cuddling koalas and fondling baby kangaroos, because before the much loved European Classics Season gets underway, there’s a couple of sun soaked Aussie races for the pros to test their legs on. These season opening races provide the perfect outlet to blow away those off-season cobwebs and…

My 2016 in eight simple bullet points!

What an interesting year 2016 has been, one of many changes in my life. I started out in England with no intention of that changing and here I am now living at the opposite end of the world! There have been some curve balls I did not see coming. There were some sad times, but…

Christmas Day Ride

It’s been a long time since I’ve had a Christmas Day ride in summer! Just a hour quickie between breakfast and lunch to explore a few of the sights of the Blue Mountains, I was getting fried in the intense sun. Hope you’re all having a fantastic holiday period with family and friends. Ride on!

Flash of the badge

Alongside the very real gift of fitness, all of the Woking CC club members who get out and complete the Metric Century Challenge each year receive a very nice cloth badge to celebrate the achievement. Thanks Steve for posting mine out to Australia! It’ll take pride of place next to last year’s badge! #keepcycling

How to Ride Indoors Like a Pro

Cody Beales (he’s a triathlete, but we won’t hold that against him) has written a fantastic piece on how he used a turbo trainer almost exclusively over the winter to bring his bike strength up from being his weakest event to world class. Whether you’re new to indoor training or a seasoned year-round turbo veteran,…
