When it comes to the most insane adventures on a bike, cycling to the South Pole would have to be right up there. Especially to be the first human being to do it. Maria Leijerstam was that person. Let her tell you more...

There are few women who have dominated their sport like Shanaze Reade has with BMX. Anna Glowinski chats to her about how she learnt her trade on tracks lit by car headlights and by the age of 11 was travelling to the World Championships in the US on her own...

Last year when on a cycling trip to Paris I stumbled across a triathlon in the elegant town of Chantilly. It looked a pretty big event, with the town, which is normally famous for horse-racing, filled with triathletes. It was a glorious day, and in fact I enjoyed the vibe so much that I got waylaid over there and arrived in Paris quite late that evening.

I decided at that moment that I would take part in that triathlon.

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...

No More Hate

Posted in Inspiration Opinions By Juliet Elliott, Award Winning Writer and Multi-Talent!

Like the sport itself, cyclists are a hugely diverse bunch. Much as those in the anti-bike brigade like to think it, we’re actually not all the same. We are everyone. Inciting wars between road users and slagging off everyone who likes riding a bike shouldn’t be the last acceptable form of bigotry.

My First Crit

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

There's no denying that road racing is really hard.

If you want to do yourself justice you're going to have to deal with nerves, physical pain, perhaps some fear and potentially some risk. These are all things I choose to accept.

That doesn't make me a badass, it just makes me a bike racer. I'd like to tell you about my first race.
