Sigma Sports and Matt Stephens (ex pro racer and former GCN host) have produced a series called “The Café Ride” where Matt goes for a ride and a chat with a name from the cycling world. The latest one is with Rebecca Charlton, filmed a couple of months ago when she was pregnant (she has…

2022 Resolution Ride #07 – Proving that metal ain’t dead!

After my recent trip up North to tropical Brisbane, it was a bit of a shock to be back in full fingered gloves, arm and leg warmers. Getting out on the road before sun-up was more of a struggle than usual. The days should be getting longer, but it doesn’t feel like it yet! The…
