West Midlands Reliability Rides 2019

I’ve compiled a list of local club 2019 reliability rides for the West Midlands area. Dates and routes are to the best of my knowledge and research but I accept no liability (and so on and so on) for you turning up and it’s not on! What’s a Reliability Ride? The reliability ride is pretty much the older, more traditional brother of the modern day sportive...

Women’s Time Trialling for Novices – My First Year

The first club time trial My first time trial took place on a cold and murky New Year’s Day 2018. It was the K7/5 between Stafford and Cannock that promised to be ‘downhill overall’ – there’s a lot of this in time trialling. A course promises to be downhill, but it’s invariably the most uphill way to get downhill! A splash of tinsel on the...

The third Open TT of my 2018 season took place last weekend. Hosted by the VTTA, it used the K48/10 circuit which I’d raced on a year ago in another Open TT.

It was also a...

Wiggle Forest Ranger Sportive Review 2017

This was to be my last sportive of the season and my second foray into the Wiggle Super Series after Mat and I tackled the Yorkshire Tour earlier this year. I’d signed up for the epic 83-mile route, but had plans to divert onto the 64-mile route given that storm Brian hadn’t quite passed over. The route started in Uttoxeter and took in parts of...
