I love exploring parts of the UK that I haven’t been too before so when planning our bank holiday get-a-away we decided to head to the New Forest, which despite being pretty much on our doorstep we hadn’t visited before!
Had the the opportunity to do some kayaking whilst camping in Studland the other weekend. Kayaking is not something I do very often, but I’ve always enjoyed it. We were on our annual girlie camping weekend so the five of us decided to give it a go, what could possible go wrong!
We traveled up to the west coast of Scotland and stayed just outside of Fort William for the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup. After enjoying a couple of days exploring the Fort William area it was Sunday – race day!
The Verderers Trail at the Forest of Dean is graded a blue (like with pistes, trails are graded green through to black) and it is a perfect introduction to mountain biking or just brilliant fun for the more experienced rider to blast around.
Going wide – my review of the new Race Face Turbine Riser handlebars and Truvative stem set up on my Orange 5. Would it make a difference to my riding?
