I have decided that today you are going to help me out.
What right do I have to do that? Well, it’s my blog and I’m an aspiring megalomaniac.
But luckily, by helping me, you will in fact be helping yourselves.
You help me help you.
We all help together.

Today’s discussion: Christmas presents for cyclists. [click to read more...]
This post is going to discuss Box Hill, the doyenne of the south-east cycling ‘scene’. All the cool cats are climbing up it. You dig?

I wanted to produce more detailed descriptions of Leith and Box, both for cyclists looking to tackle them on an informal weekend ride and for those riders that would ascend them in the intense athletic cauldron that is RideLondon.
I wanted to do that, so I did do that. Capisce? (which is the correct spelling)

With cycling growing in popularity, and with what feels like a greater number of more expensive bikes on the roads, tracking systems for bikes has to be a growth area.
Never let it be said that the Grimpeur doesn’t like to investigate interesting growths.
Today’s post is going to look at how bike tracking works and at the systems that are available for cyclists now and in the near future.
This is bleeding edge, blue sky, hi tech stuff, so strap on your Google glasses and join me on silicon bike lane. [click to read more...]
