Charity Cycling Trips, Cycling Events, Bike Holidays, Cycling Tours

WE ARE an anarchic amalgamation of cyclists of all types - DH, XC, freeride and skill levels competition (no success) and pootle (gold medal standard). Most important is we actually do it. We ride in all sorts of places; North Downs, South Downs, Wales, Chilterns, Peaks, Lakes, Yorkshire, Alps, America. Car sharing is the norm and travel never has been a problem.

Then we use the list to talk and talk and talk about rides, kit, other people...

We also drink, tell lies and covet our neighbours new pimpy bike.

cyclistWE AREN'T a club, we don't have rules, a committee, fees, the same boring Sunday ride every week and certainly not matching ride shirts!

Cycling Reports

16/08/2010 - SITS Solo Experiences ... full report 24 hours of riding around on a muddy track in the midlands... Sounds like fun, so I signed up to race this thing on a whim and at short notice. I'm OK at long rides, you know 8-10 hours in the saddle, how different can 24 hours be? Well, I knew enough to know that running the run wasn 14/12/2015 - Burbage Trail Quest ... full report The sun was shining, the wind was blowing (always from the wrong direction) the ground had developed tractor beam tendencies and I'd packed the wrong legs... To add insult to injury Nicci and I lost our top position and came second out of a field of about two! We wasted half an hour

02/11/2015 - North Downs - First Winter Ride ... full report Up in the dark. Miserable weather. Chuck kit in car, strap bike on top. Drive to Wotton (where?) for 10:30.

02/09/2015 - I'm fitter than Barrie Clarke! ... full report Cristalp, it?s Saturday morning in Verbier. My nightmare has come true and we go to register.

We woosed out of camping and headed home whilst the hardier types s
