Talk About An Emotional Roller Coaster

  8 months ago

I sit here writing with a heart that is completely torn.  It is both excited and at the same time hurting.  As in all typical relationships my head is wanting to take over (which is probably sensible) but my heart is still winning.  I’ll try explain:  I am back in the front seat of Full…

Raising Rippers

I’ll admit I have absolutely no personal experience on this front. But I’ve coached a fair amount of school sport and studied some of the youth athlete developmental theories back in my days as a Sport Science undergraduate, with those lessons and my own experiences as a youngster taking up sports, here are a few…

Writing from a Volcanic MTB Paradise

  2 years ago

I am writing from 1 500 meters above sea level which isn’t high for you guys on the reef, but the amazing part is that we are in the middle of the Indian Ocean, on the slopes of an active volcano on the insanely unique island of Reunion. We are here as part of an invited group…

Soft targets!

  2 years ago

We have banged this drum ad nauseam but as mountain bikers it is now very much on our doorstep – which in most cases is some remote, sublimely secluded beautiful part of the mountain or countryside. We are soft targets with expensive toys. Cyclists are being stabbed, hit with bricks and poles and no longer…

Winter willies don’t scare us MTBers!

  2 years ago

“I can’t believe how quickly you lose your fitness” lamented my mate Rudy as we puffed our way around a morning ride before our planned meeting. Yip it’s frustrating and the dark and cold doesn’t make it easier to jump on the bike and hit the trails but if you don’t have a radiator, like…
