Abby Fletcher // Customer Relations // A New Goat Joins The Herd

JOINING THE HERD ‘Any plans for the weekend?’ ask my work colleagues. ‘Yes, I’m cycling to Cambridge’…jaw drop, confused look… ’From London?’ ‘Yes’ ’You’re crazy.’ I smile, shrug and say ‘It should be fun!’ Then I walk away whilst thinking ‘and back again.’ (but I keep that to myself!) This became a pretty standard exchange […]

New Year // New Challenges // Ashley Oldfield // #5

New Year, New Challenges Every year gets off to a rocky start, with its own set of challenges to deal with but this year has been something of an ordeal, to say the least. While all the Northern Hemisphere riders are couped up indoors and logging miles on Zwift, the sun cranks up to its […]

For many of us, our race season started back in May (even earlier in March if you’re into that duathlon malarky…). So for five straight months we have put the pedal down both in training and our chosen […]

Riding In Africa // Ashley Oldfield

riding in africa

Riding in Africa Living in Africa, there’s a common misconception that wild animals are free to roam through our gardens and dodging wildlife on the way to work is a daily occurrence. Most seasoned travellers know better by now, but I still get asked those odd questions from time to time. No, the wildlife isn’t […]

Jennifer Lucas // 2019 Race Planning

2019 race planning

2019 Race Planning So there I was, making my way around the halfway buoy during the swim portion of Ironman Copenhagen with cartoon stars whizzing around my head after a good old-fashioned kick to the face from someone who’d spontaneously started doing breaststroke right in front of me. A sensible, rational human being would probably […]
