Some races for 2018

I’m planning a couple of ‘raids’ this year.I think they’re called that. I’ve now managed, I think, to squeeze the Alps in as well as the Pyrenees. In the case of the Alps it was more that I sneakily influenced a family holiday to be near the Alps…”Wouldn’t it be nice to do some hill…

RIDE LONDON ZWIFT

PRU Ride London – Again

The PRU Ride London probably falls into the ‘iconic’ category. A visiting cyclist to London & Surrey would definitely love the ride and all it takes in. If you only do Sunday group/club rides then the Ride London, for many, will be a step up in excitement as you cycle closely to several tens of…

Pru Ride London 2016 – 100 Mile Gadget Performance

London Duathlon 2016 ULTRA

London Duathlon (Sun 18 Sep 2016) are being clear about their pricing. It normally sells out anyway. So lucky they haven’t hiked the prices too much like the ALCATRAZ OLY aTRI  week or so ago.
