    BWC London 2018

    I posted a small clip a while back of the moment when the lead group passed me three years ago in the BWC in London, but I never put together the whole race. It's all a bit uneventful - with the exception of seeing just how quickly a Brompton can be ridden, and the start/finish straight on lap...

    London Road Vs Voodoo Limba

    Hi folks I've had my eye on a Voodoo Limba for some time now but have just spotted these London Road bikes. They are clearly more expensive, but what am I getting extra for my money?. Is this just a better looking bike or a significantly better bike for the extra £350? Interested in your...

    London to Brighton route

    I want to plan a route from London (near Hyde Park (central) ) to Brighton and I'm wondering if anyone has any recommended routes or nice parts to cycle through with a road bike?
