One week ’till party time: GC2

We’re pretty much one week away so I thought I’d do one final push with the details so everyone knows what to expect, and maybe it’ll entice a few more into joining us. As we’ve said, this is just a group ride between mates- so we have no idea how many people are going to […]

Three Peaks: a day beyond.

There’s no way to describe what I am about to describe. Which makes this piece of writing seemingly obsolete. But I feel it important to write down my experience as much for my own benefit to remember and enjoy what was one of the most surreal and incredible days I’m likely to have on a […]

Southern Cross: Round 1- Stanmer. I’m all in.

I’m not even gonna say the classic phrase about cyclocross, but it has fallen on deaf ears in my case for a few years. There are many reasons, but now looking back, I am kicking myself that I hadn’t seen what I now know. It doesn’t have the glamour of road riding and racing (or […]

Gravel Chaser 2

Hopefully you have read about or heard us talking about the epic all day original Gravel Chaser gravelcross ride we did earlier this month.

The Collective 021: Roubaix, Flanders and everything in between.

I’ve been sat for about 20 minutes trying to work out how to convey the feelings, atmosphere and shock to the senses that watching the pros come past on the Carrefour de l’Arbre. It seems that I can’t. Which is why it is such a special experience because you have to be there. In a […]

The Collective 019: Cross and Pod

It’s freezing, the wind is whipping through a sodden, muddy car park and I’m sat in my car with my hands infront of the vents with the heat on full- just to try and get some sort of feeling back to put on a summer skinsuit. Cyclocross is like nothing I’ve ever done before. The […]

The Collective 018: 2019 training, racing and riding + pro predictions.

The blog is back for 2019. Thank you to everyone who read it last year- it’s always nice to get feedback either online or during a ride. Hopefully people got some sort of entertainment/insight from reading them- or maybe they think they’re rubbish- that’s also fine. Remember- we have all new kits, an Ambassador program […]
