More and more people are asking
about the cyclosportives I've been doing for the past few years, and will continue to do this year.
This section of the website may seem a little egotistical (isn't it all?)
but I think it will add value, even if just one person reading this decides
to take the plunge and give one a try.
In 2004 I was the only person
in the whole of the world that took part in every round of the European
UCI Golden Bike Series! How fantastic is that? Well I enjoyed
it, even if it did involve driving 12,000 miles to take part in seven
events in seven different countries. I now realise the true value of
a single European currency. And, for the first
time for twenty years I've driven more miles in my car than I've ridden on
It was a fantastic experience
and one I would thoroughly recommend to anyone.
From the cobblestones of the Tour of Flanders to the dizzying heights of
the Quebrantahuesos, from the 6 degrees fridge that was the Black Forest to the 44 degree
furnace that was the L'Ariegoise, the season had it all. Here is
where I can share with you, the routes, the experience and other
information should you wish to do it yourself.
In this section of the site you
will find, reviews of the events; parcours, climbing information, results, websites and anything else I can think of that may help
whet your appetite to go and do one yourself. Believe it or not
there is more to cycling than ten laps of the track and riding Hougue Bie
every other week. You will not be disappointed.
Every single event is an
adventure. You can't come back without a story to tell.
try at least one in your lifetime?
Hope you find it useful
