This is a page on cycling interests.....

Cycling interests can be quite broad, and in this case they are, everything from wussie, chatty recreational road rides, to flat out 40 KPH chases down twisting singletracks that end up in cracked ribs because you can't make the corner the lighter rider in front of you does...

Okay, now that YOU'RE here, what's here?

This page is broken up into links and write-ups in regard to Equipment, Information sources, Technical, General issues, and specific areas such as Touring, MTB, Trials etc, etc.

NB. You will note that the write-ups on our activities seem rather scarce (well, none, actually), but there will be some, when I get the time. ;^)


NB. Links to other sites from this page should not be construed as an endorsement of these sites, they're an indication that, in my opinion, there is content of great interest in these sites, no more.
