Bike crashing, uphilling and building, BMX, CX, and a silly dunt

8 Things You Can Do in a 'Cross Race But Not in Real Life 

The folks at Bicycling magazine in the USA have a go at seeing how what you might encounter in a cyclo-cross race could go down in normal life. Looks totally okay to us. Especially the coffee hand-ups and beer and frites at the desk.


Progression of BMX in Cuba

Local rider Frank Gonzalez has adopted and progressed with the sport he loves, choosing BMX riding over mountainbiking as they broke less and were cheaper and easier to mend with the limited resources at hand.


A right dunt on the head

What would you do if you had the chance to bunny-hop over "comedian, television presenter and actor" Jack Whitehall? Tell him it was fine and he wouldn’t need a helmet? Maybe if you were Danny MacAskill. Oh.


Dropping In On Drop Bars

Because you can’t just ride your cyclo-corss bike anymore you have to rag it here’s NS Bikes rider Piotrek Jurczak whipping on the RAG+, the company’s new our new off-road, big wheeled, drop bar freak.


Urban Going Downhill Fast

Old Skool x New School

We showed the teaser for this film last week and here’s the full length version of when Tom Ritchey visited The Bicycle Academy in Bristol. Hallowed to legendary status in the mountainbike world he builds an equally nice cyclo-cross or road bike. Worth a cup of tea and a biscuit this one.


That’s it for this week, a brief selection of offerings which means more time for riding. Has it stopped raining yet?

Jo Burt has spent the majority of his life riding bikes, drawing bikes and writing about bikes. When he's not scribbling pictures for the whole gamut of cycling media he writes words about them for and when he's not doing either of those he's pedaling. Then in whatever spare minutes there are in between he's agonizing over getting his socks, cycling cap and bar-tape to coordinate just so. And is quietly disappointed that yours don't He rides and races road bikes a bit, cyclo-cross bikes a lot and mountainbikes a fair bit too. Would rather be up a mountain.
