My feet have barely touched the ground since I arrived back in the UK after my Italian odyssey with Met and Brooks. But myself and Mr Bikes N Stuff have managed to fire over some profiles of a particularly stylish bunch of female cyclists to Total Women’s Cycling. So whilst I gather my thoughts and put pen to paper, or digit to keyboard to bring you tales of Tuscany and Lake Como, have a little look at the bikes and outfits of this half dozen cyclistas.

    Hi Juliet, love the site and all you do for the fixie/women’s scene. I’m doing the Eroica Brittania this year on my Plug 1 (provided they accept it as a ‘heroic bicycle’) Any good tips – I’m just aiming at getting round in one piece!

      Hi Dave, thank you! I could be wrong, but i’m pretty sure your bike needs to be pre-1987 for Eroica. I think they will have bikes to hire though, as least I hope so as I don’t have one myself! My tip would be to go for the middle length route, so it’s long enough to be a challenge, but not so long that you can’t stop any enjoy stuff along the way. If it’s anything like as good as the one in Italy, we’re in for a treat. I spoke to the organisers and it sounds like they’ve some fantastic plans!

    Yay! Just heard that I can enter either the short or the medium route on my 2014 Plug 1 – super excited! If you pass a grovelling, wheezing wreck of a man slogging it up the hills in ‘the last (only) remaining gear on the block’ give us a wave!
