Enjoying another glorious sunny day, I thought I would take a few photos for the website. As usual our border terrier Spike thought he would get in on the action. I wonder what his chalk message would be ‘feed me’ , ‘treats’, ‘walkies’ or ‘squirrels’……Most probably the latter, as this is what makes him a [...]
Having enjoyed a fantastic day out at the recent L’Eroica Britannia Bike Festival in Bakewell spurred me on to put in more miles on the bike. Passing the Tinytwin stand I thought although a great idea, I didn’t fancy a ‘mini me’ on the mantelpiece complete with beer belly! This still didn’t deter me from [...]
We recently suffered garage envy, when someone posted a shot on Facebook of their pristine bike cave. A collection of bikes neatly hung from the walls and clear floor space, complete with a professional looking workshop stand. It’s was time to sort out the clutter in our bike store. Ebay is soon going to be [...]
Our merino cycling jersey has literally been through the mill and back again, ridden throughout the Winter and Summer here and two tours (including the occasional involuntary dismount into thorny bushes) in the hills and heat of southern Spain. So far it has more than lived up to our goal to produce something that is [...]
We had the pleasure to meet Simon Bradley last weekend. Simon is the founder & driving force behind #MTBMeetup. What started out as a nice idea to hook up with a few mates for a ride has rapidly turned into something much bigger than he first anticipated. Thanks to a great base of Twitter followers, [...]
Spotted in Pip’s bedroom…a new message eluding to what could be the beginning of a lifelong passion. Unfazed by winter weather or the hills of the Peaks, she’s just happy to be out at any given opportunity. The weekend routes are now gradually extended and the times to complete decreasing. It is great to have [...]
There is nothing better than the thought of a mug of hot tea and a chunk of cake to keep you cranking out the last few miles. We have accumulated a select list of cafés over the years. One in particular, nestled down a track near Flash was always a favourite. Huge slices of the [...]
We have been labouring away over the last few months crowd sourcing content for Bike Map, our first product. The finished map is made up from over 700 biking terms and references including the names of iconic bikes (Mountain Cycle San Andreas and the Klein Attitude), famous cycling clubs (Larkspur Canyon Gang), classic races (TransRockies [...]
Our half pint mugs are individually crafted by a small studio pottery based in Stoke-on-Trent, using the hands-on slip moulding technique. With a double kiln firing in temperatures over 1000 degrees and a hand dipped glaze they should be perfect mug for that well earned post ride drink.
Bike Map our first product is a fresh twist on a traditional contour map – a map that recalls the nostalgia of the classic early mountain bikes. Bikes that we drooled over in the late 80’s and onwards but could never afford all set to the art of cartography.
