I thought I’d do a review on the Rapha repair service, something they offer to customers who purchase certain items from their range. So if you crash and damage an item, you can send it back to them for free repairs, yes, free!!
I’ve been wanting a steel road bike for a long time. I have been trawling eBay every other night just checking for any bargains or bikes that pop up, bidding on the occasional bike but never quite getting there, and never finding anything just right.
Being a cyclist who races, and is generally interested in cycling news, results, and the cycling community, I use VeloUK.net. Now, Larry does a fantastic job of running it, but I noticed the website logo looked a little dated (Larry would agree, so I’m not being rude ;)).
What a great bank holiday weekend!! Hours spent on the bike in sunshine, and a Sunday spent on the bike and watching the Wiltshire GP, part of the British Cycling’s National Series Elite Road Races. It was a great chance to watch the pros riding on roads I train and ride on all the time, and they did make it look easy – although a few struggled, which made us all feel a bit better!
I thought that since I buy quite a lot of bike stuff, and subsequently use it, a lot. That it would be worth me writing some short reviews on the products and kit that I buy.
Over Christmas I completed the Rapha Festive 500. As part of that I registered for the free Rapha Woven Roundel, and I also thought that since I’m unlikely to be able to do this every Christmas, I’d buy the commemorative Rapha T-Shirt through Strava.
