Alright ladies and gents, I'm no pro cyclist, I'm on the newbie side. The most I've ridden is 30 miles. Will I be able to ride 100 miles by this summer if I only ride once a week ? Seems like a steep…Continue

I've tried a few and just don't like the feel so unless in a country requiring them by law, I go helmetless. I've had plenty of bike accidents, smashed out teeth, broken femur, broken wrist but not…Continue

Might as well take this opportunity to post about my act of blasphemy:
I've put big, studded MTB platforms on my road bike....and I like it :D

not too mention I've my stem flipped up...and cycling with a small crack in my helmet...and I've mudguards...and plan on putting 28c tyres on...and getting a steel frame....and I'm still running 8 speed...and even when I eventually go to 10 speed (if ever) i'm going to stick with a square taper bottom bracket....

...Haters gonna hate!! :P

seems that way Arsenio.  maybe just the cold and wet weather in the UK right now but it never really has been busy as far as I am concerned.

is this group dead ?

Call me old fashioned but I'm not fond of strangers jumping into our conversation just to market their own channel?  Enjoying cycling and being a vegan does not compensate for bad manners.

Hey y'all! Check my channel out! Some awesome cycling tips and VEGAN content! :)

Hey Ken, have you got the new custom bike yet?  Love to hear about it if you have.

Hi Ronan,  I have loved Chainreaction for the last three years but have become a little disappointed with them recently.  I have received a number of money off vouchers from them with purchases (that don't mention a sell buy date on them) that run out about a month later. I wrote to them showing that I had tried to use three vouchers and all had been rejected but they would not honor even one.  Also i wrote a negative review recently on some Michelin tyres which they are selling cheap as a package (2x tyre and inner tube) at the moment and they didn't post the review despite my complaining and trying to post it a second time. I can only guess that they didn't want their sales dented in the run-up to Christmas? Not big issues in themselves but they are perhaps indicative of the culture there.  You need to really check that the good deals are good deals.

I am riding out with the boys from WyndyMilla on a Saturday now and really enjoying it. No charge just turn up and they sort us into different groups.  Getting to know parts of Surrey I didn't know existed. Important at this time of year to cycle in groups so that you are seen and have help if something goes wrong.  Those of you in the southern hemisphere enjoy your summer!
