Bolle Aeromax: Tested and Reviewed

I've managed to get a few rides in this summer. Unlike a lot of people I actually adore the heat. I think I'm actually part lizard and out on the bike the feeling of the sum on my skin is pretty close to my idea of heaven. Of course with all this sun it's been the perfect chance to test out some sunglasses including the striking Aeromax from French company Bolle.

A few years ago I was writing some interactive cycling training to be rolled out country wide. I was restricted to items that this particular company sold and as I was writing the module on saddle fit and comfort, it occurred to me that for all the talk of good shorts, the right saddle etc I had to miss out something very important in the process.

Things To Do on a Bike: Cyclo-Cross

As a kid Saturday afternoons meant one thing. 4 O'Clock was time for the wrestling on ITV's World of Sport. Not that pumped up nonsense from across the pond, but real wrestling, fat Northern blokes bumping into each other with their massively oversized bellies. I was a Giant Haystacks fan my self, Big Daddy was too nice and urban myth had it that he had a sister in Emmerdale Farm. Rollerball Rocco? No he looked like Bobby Ball.
