If you want some hills in your week then you need to talk to Elliot and join his Wednesday night Summit Ride - or ‘Dip & Chips’ as it’s called in winter when the weather only allows as far as the ‘dip’ at the bottom as the top is covered in ice and snow! The ride starts from the.... More

ZAC Cycles | 10/02/2018 08:20:17

We’ve all been there; it’s chucking it down, blooming freezing when a voice shouts up “puncture”.
