Juliet's just finished her first season. "Racing bikes is nothing short of a high so with the season all wrapped up and no more fixed crits until next April I'm feeling something akin to withdrawal."

Long cycle rides, as with any endurance sport, can wreak havoc on our digestive system if we don’t treat it right. Your body is working overtime to keep your muscles moving, blood pumping & lungs breathing and you don’t want to create more stress by giving it more work to do to digest your food. So how can you keep your tummy happy whilst on the bike?

Let's face it, the UK's not famous for blazing heat. When the mercury passes 20c we're prone to flapping about as though we're living in the Dubai desert. Fans and paddling pools sell out, and public fountains are gridlocked. But it can, and most years it does at some point...

5 Ways to Prepare for Long Rides

Posted in Fitness Inspiration By Juliet Elliott, Award Winning Blogger and Multi-Talent!

In the spirit of challenging myself this year, I’ve decided to try my first long distance ride, cycling from Lands End to John O’ Groats. As someone who favours short, fast, intense racing such as criterium, I don’t regularly ride for longer than 90km. Here are 5 areas I'm going to focus on to prepare me for the LEJOG 960-mile-long route.

We all know that eating properly can make you go better on your bike. But how many of us have devoted a career to studying it? Nutritionist Jasmine Campbell has - and she's especially good on female specific tips.

The first time I rode my bike up a hill I had to get off and push. I pushed my bike over the brow of the hill and slumped down on the verge to admire the view. I had no sense of satisfaction, I had hardly justified a rest, but my wobbly legs needed to regroup. The pros make it all look so easy, so effortless. The reality, I found, was somewhat different...

Top Tips for winter Indoor Training

Posted in Video Fitness By Juliet Elliott, Award Winning Blogger and Multi-Talent!

There’s a saying, ‘Winter miles equal summer smiles,’ and whilst I wholeheartedly agree that one’s time is always best spent cycling, during the winter months it can be hard to fit in as much ride time as one requires to stay fit and sane. One of the ways I get round the problem of terrifyingly icy roads is by hopping on my mountain bike, but I also like to swap some of my on-the-bike sessions for indoor training and workouts in the comfort of my own home...

Have YOU Got What it Takes to be an “Athlete”?

Posted in Fitness Inspiration Opinions By Lara Dunn - former Editor of Women's Cycling Magazine

According to the Oxford English Dictionary 'an athlete is a person who is proficient in sports and other forms of physical exercise.' Well, I’m fairly certain that each and every one of us who gets out and about on our bike fulfills those criteria. It might come down to your personal definition of “proficient” but I’m willing to bestow that level of expertise onto those of us who passed the exam in primary school and who manage to stay upright at least 50% of the time.

So, every time you take out your bike, and indeed even when you’re sitting enjoying your post-ride tea and cake, you can rest easy in the knowledge that your athletisism is not in question. But would you really refer to yourself as an athlete?
