Video: Riding In Switzerland with Assos
One of my favourite parts of my job is visiting my sponsors Assos. With headquarters in Ticino and a very fancy ‘pro’ shop on the shores of the stunning Lake Lugano, it’s certainly never a chore, and not least because a bike ride is always on the cards.
Sometime last year I paid my buddies a visit and we headed off into the mountains to film this video showcasing the brand new laaLalai three quarter length tights, or ‘Knickers,’ as Assos prefers to call them. Naturally, I can’t resist chuckling at a video showing me riding around in knickers because knickers is what us Brits call girls’ underwear.
But jokes aside (and believe me, I’ve made plenty), these tights are superb – they use an extremely luxurious new women’s chamois that feels extremely luxurious, so watch out for them when they’re released.
And the video came out nicely too. Want to see me riding around in my knickers?

Thanks to Juliet Elliott for taking the time to ride with us. We hear that you’re still dreaming of those nice Southern Swiss roads.
