#DolomitesVives: shows, emotions and sustainability on stage at the Sella Pass

Published in International News

I've got a confession. Although I know I'm extremely photogenic and I'm unaware the camera is pointed in my direction on most occasions, I may just be a little bit of a poser. No don't argue with me I am honestly, trust me.

Etape Loch Ness

I heard the excitement in her voice, Well as much excitement as a Yorkshire accent can actually convey, "A closed road sportive around Loch Ness, I've got to do that." Problem was the only spaces available were charity and I don't get why people should sponsor me to enjoy myself so I didn't fancy it but Julie being new to proper cycling ie road it was still enough of a challenge to warrant it. So in the depths of a Scottish spring we made our way to Inverness.

Things to do on a Bike This Year: Mountain Biking

I'll be honest I don't do anywhere near enough mountain biking. Before I succumbed to the lure of Lycra and shaved legs I liked nothing better than tearing around Afan. Well that might be stretching the truth a little. I smoked so I pushed up the climbs and I'm a bit of a wimp so I used a lot of back brake on the descents, but even the worst day I ever had on the Knobblies was still a beautiful day in part. Mountain Biking always leaves me smiling.

Mountain Mayhem 2016

Like all 40 something cyclists I'm a bit of a frustrated racer. I'd love to race road but due to the medication I take for ADHD I'd have to go through the faff of organising a Therapeutic Use Exemption Certificate and be prohibited from taking it on race day. I'm useless without it so I'm in a bind. Three years on I'm still not any closer to making a decision so when the chance to race as part of a sponsors team at Mountain Mayhem the 24hr Endurance Mountain Bike event came along I purchased some baggies, grew my leg hair and headed off to the Princess Royal's back garden ie Gatcombe Park, to make my competitive debut.
