Let’s get LOOSE!

Is there really any other choice in this weather?? It's perhaps day 6 of rain here in the Alps, and whilst I shouldn't really complain, I'm going to.

Trail Gold in the Maritime Alps

I was recently asked what fascinates me most about mountain biking. My answer: the places my bike takes me. Years ago I ended up in Graz, Austria because of bikes. Heard of it? I hadn't. This amazing city full of gothic looking architecture was a complete unknown to me. There were also some sweet-ass dirt… Continue reading Trail Gold in the Maritime Alps
