It’s amazing what you can do with a Santa hat and a set of lights from a Pound shop! My helmet is all set for the festive season and has already put a smile on a few people’s faces. Wishing all fellow cyclists a very Merry Christmas and happy holidays ???
Having been out and about on my bike more this year than ever before, I find myself totally in awe of our Olympic champion cyclists and all other British professional cyclists. I take my hat of (or helmet as the case may be) to anyone who perseveres through the grass roots of cycle racing to […]
