I've had a steady season on the road with a win, a KOM jersey from HotChillee's London-Paris and ended the season on a high with a 1-2 with my team-mate in a stage race. While I enjoy riding on the road my main focus is cyclo-cross therefore I have used these races to build my general… Read full post

This guest blog comes courtesy of Peloton Training. ---------------------------------- An all-too-often favoured training technique of many recreational cyclists is to go out and just ride. Completing our pre-chosen course in the quickest time we can within the boundaries of reasonable comfort is often the goal. Or perhaps we’ll go out and we… Read full post

With a change in the route in 2014 there were new challenges for riders who had taken part before and the usual nerves from those doing their very first HotChillee event. There’s no doubt that the highlight of the first day’s… Read full post

Alpine Challenge 2014: Day Two - Beauty and The Beast

Posted by Matt Moran on Sep 05, 2014

If we saw The Beast yesterday then Day Two of HotChillee's Alpine Challenge delivered us the Beauty. Sunshine, mountains and a blue sky kept us company over some challenging terrain. After a fairly brutal timed climb on the Semnoz twenty-four hours ago we were treated to something a little gentler in the form of the Col des Aravis. But first we… Read full post

Bike history none but a Wattbike addict was born

Posted by Matt Moran on Aug 14, 2014

Guest blog by Ruth Ward Well some say I was crazy but a friend had mentioned something about a bike sportive called La Marmotte and if I wanted to do it I should sign up quickly or there would be no spaces left.
