Ann Wilson is an inspirational British female cyclist who set off in July 2009 on a Round the World Bike ride aged 59. Her cycling adventure began in 2007 when a friend inspired her by giving her the book "A bike Ride" by another amazing female cyclist Anne Mustoe.

Ultra endurance events don't need to be high budget. Some teams have enormous budgets and can afford mobile homes and the like. But the experience can be had for a fraction of the cost by roughing it in the back of a transit van. In 2007 Luke cycled the entire route of the tour de France. In this article (part 4) he rides the Tour de France prologue and watches the Grand Depart.Ultra endurance events don't need to be high budget. Some teams have enormous... more

"The 'bike tree', an automatic storage system for cycles, can hold up to 6,000 bikes – but could it branch out in the UK?"
"It's not often something stops you in your bike tracks. But a spectacular "bike tree" invention from Japan bowled me over when I was in Tokyo a couple of weeks ago.
Fed up with bicycles locked to railings, piled on top of each other, blocking doorways and roads, a local council in the city installed the mechanical masterpiece. It's basically an automatic storage system for cycles and operates with computer tagging of bikes and either storage in a building or a basement structure."
Watch the video at the link.
That tree structure really makes me think of the one in the matrix film, they had a similar one but for humans though :)"The 'bike tree', an automatic storage system for cycles, can hold up... more
The Tour de France is one of the world’s great sporting events. A national institution in France and cause of great celebration around the world. Roughly 3500km long and over about 20 days it is a gruelling test of body and mind.
In 2007 I rode the entire route 1 day ahead of the professionals and thought I would put together an overview of my trip and provide some pointers for others tempted to tackle a stage or the whole route. This is part 1 of a series of articles documenting my story.The Tour de France is one of the world’s great sporting events. A national... more
Setting out on an adventure can be a daunting experience especially when we are travelling alone. We fear that we will be just that “alone”. This is rarely the case, more often it is the people we meet and the experiences we share that form the best and strongest memories of our journey.
I enjoyed this experience recently spending 5 months rock climbing in Fontainebleau, France and today’s guest post by Nathan Winters describes just such an experience of the power of connection with new people when he embarked on an amazing 4300 mile bike ride across America.Setting out on an adventure can be a daunting experience especially when we are... more

The psychology of completing ultra endurance events is one of staying in the moment. but looking deeper, why are we participating in the first place ? What drives us to push our bodies far beyond our preconditioned limits. Lance Armstrong has said “All endurance athletes are running away from something”. Is he right? This video uses images from ultra endurance cycling and considers “suffering” in the makeup of an endurance athlete.

The mountain cols of the Tour de France have been the scene of epic battles since the very start of the race in the early 20th Century. For amateur riders they provide a a chance to test yourself on a battlefield with no hiding places. Riding one or two in a day is a big challenge! This cyling video is about Phil Deeker who’s ambitions were just a little bit bigger. He rode 319 of them in 29 days clocking up a staggering 4580 km with 82,300 metres climbed.

This short film uses the words from Tim Crabbe's classic novel about road cycling. "The Rider". It is probably the greatest book ever written about cycle racing and gives a unique insight into the mindset of bike racers. This film is dark in character and focuses on one aspect of a winning bike racers psychology. Not necessarily nice or pleasent but without it, a bike racer will never reach their potential.This short film uses the words from Tim Crabbe's classic novel about road... more
