Family adventures – riding across Europe!
Christopher’s both excited and nervous standing next to his Genesis bike, packed with energy and ready to roll out. I don’t think I’ve seen him this way for some time, it’s clear that we are both really looking forward to this adventure, him for the ride itself and I’m stoked to see how it’s going … Continue reading Family adventures – riding across Europe!Continue Reading

So how do you prepare? … Continue reading Transcontinental training. A rough guide…Continue Reading
