Rad Race Fixed 42 World Championships

Apologies for the tardiness of this post, I’ve been pretty flat out trying to catch up with work and travel these last few weeks! In the middle of June, the ‘Fixed 42‘ Fixed Gear World Championships took place in Berlin, the […]

How To Ride Faster

One of the things I love most about cycling is going fast. The other is getting airborne and doing jumps, which isn’t really relevant to riding a road bike at all so when it comes to riding asphalt I get my […]

Racing La Petite Course Crit In Paris

The weekend before last, I hopped on a train to Paris to go and race the inaugural edition of La Petite Course crit. It just so happened to be the same weekend that the London Nocturne was taking place and […]

How About Racing Enduro In Wales?

With multiple timed stages reached under your own steam, Enduro races have invigorated grass roots mountain biking over the last few years introducing the thrill of racing down technical terrain to a new generation of riders. Unlike a Downhill race […]

A Training and Injury Update

I’m still relatively new to both training and racing – it was only last June that I impulsively entered the inaugural London round of the Red Hook Crit series and signed up for a month’s intensive training in preparation. Before […]

Fast Forward Carbon Tubular Track Wheels

I’ve been running Mavic Ellipse clinchers on my track bike for a while now, and whilst they certainly do the job pretty decently, every time I go to the velodrome, I do get wheel envy. I’m generally a pretty cheap […]

Madrid & Marin Team Camp

A couple of weeks ago I headed to Spain with my mountain bike for the second time this year. This time the destination was just outside Madrid, so a little further north than my previous trip to Malaga. I was a guest […]

Women’s Stage Race at Exeter

2016 is the first year that I’ve had racing in mind from the get-got. Last year, I suddenly had the urge to race road, track and fixed gear crits sometime around June, which meant that I had already missed a […]

Red Hook Crit Barcelona Part 1

Riding my first ever Red Hook Crit back in July was an amazing experience – the race itself, the atmosphere, the people, just everything about it hooked me straight in and made me want to sign up for the next […]

My First Track Race

One of my previous posts about the hurdles facing female cyclists was sparked by my own personal experiences down here in my neck of the woods. I’ve heard some feedback from women with thriving scenes in their area (London), which […]
