I don’t always wear Lycra, but when I do, I prefer to be in the trees.
Don’t let the cack weather stop you from getting some miles in. The Vulture’s internally coated frame tubes and moisture beating drilled BB makes it the perfect all-weather, all terrain machine. #edcoating
Couldn’t have asked for a better final night on #torinonicerally
. Went through hell and back getting up there but boy was it worth it. 🏕🚲🏔
Story: New Gravel Event: Dirty K. “The K2 has a long history of being one of the hardest one-day road races in New Zealand. We want to uphold the history that this event has, as being an honest day out, by offering another (dirty) event option for the new wave of gravel riders coming through - and to be frank, anyone that wants a tough challenge and a bloody good time.” Live now on #nzcyclingjournal
and inside Vol. 7.
Managed to find my climbing legs with the support of the MC ride crew and pedal my way up and down Mt Evelyn, Silvan & Olinda trails for the Ol' Dirty. There were moments on the single track descents that I was holding on for dear life and wishing I was on my MTB and not my CX but still had fun & went hard. Time to rest the legs and lungs now, thanks @hells500
for a great event & challenge through a beautiful part of the world ✌🏽🚵🏽♀️🌲💦🍻 #sundayfunday #oldirty2018 #gohardorgohome
Skies like these 😍. The weather on the @silkroadmountainrace
was definitely a big part of the challenge, but most evenings the Sky Gods gave us memorable mountain moments (probably to lure us in for more suffering). Now that I’m back in the scottish climate, I’m really missing those Tien Shan skies! 🏔🇰🇬🚴🏻♀️ #srmrno1
Today I learned that while there's plenty of gravel bike gravel out there, my immediate area is certainly more of the fat bike variety.
I ride the local farm roads on my Checkpoint and 920 all the time but most forward progress is hard fought and even holding a straight line is a constant struggle. The farm roads have a deep top layer of gravel over an even deeper soft layer of dirt... It is pretty smooth though haha.
So since todays route consisted almost entirely of this stuff I grabbed my Scott Big Jon. Instead of fighting the road the whole time I could just cruise. No jarring vibes, no constant searching for a rideable line but best of all I got to places that wouldnt have been fun to ride to otherwise.
Point is? .... Ride the fun bike, whichever bike that happens to be that day.

Go out and see something new
Two riders are now riding some of the best tires out there thanks to @sparkwheelworks
Not only did Spark provide raffle prizes but they ran the aid station at the very important turn around point, keeping cyclists hydrated, fed, and smiling all day.
