So I have just returned from around a year off the bike due to serious injury and I find myself with a reasonable level of fitness, I want to get good again.
1) I need new cleats, shoes, the works, what would make a good pair for around £100? Best shoes? Best pedals?
2) Any advice on buying rollers? Do people prefer turbos? Are there good makes to look out for?
Okay, so my girlfriend is worried about me being hit by a car and wants me to get some sort of high vis top whilst cycling. She suggested a high vis sash , I refused . I use a front/rear light combo everytime I'm out. I was thinking of getting a fluro top (do these only really work in dull light or will they be good in summer too?) but wondering if I'd be better off with a bright coloured top (red or something) Suggestions/advice welcome and any ideas for tops to get.
Hello all, I've been into triathlon for the last few years and have completed up to and including a 70.3. I'm entered in IM Wales this year but, like so many people, am seriously losing my motivation and the thought of stealing every weekend for the next 4.5 months from my wife just isn't doing it for me just now. I am fully aware that no one gives a monkey's whether I complete an IM other than me - but what I really enjoy is riding my bike. To that end I'm really curious to know what my best path into (very!!) low end racing is likely to be, in terms of events etc. Should I look at a crit?
Black socks seem to be all the rage with pro's these days. Does anyone know where I can get my hands on a couple of pairs of plain black ones? I like the look of Rapha's but not at £15 a go!!
Attatched is an idea for a finished piece for one of my Pre-U Fine Art projects.
As part of the development, please may I get some feedback and perhaps an artistic response?
Anything is appreciated,
This is a call for help, or more simply, a plug for a good cause!
I am a 3rd year photography student at the Cambridge School of Art (Anglia Ruskin) and as a collective my class is currently fundraising for our London Degree Show later in the year.
Three of us, including myself will be cycling from Cambridge to Paris and then all the way back to help raise funds for the show which we have to organise as a student project, no input from higher powers! Money in the arts is sparse, for us mere students anyway(!) so we are relying on good ol' generosity.
