For this weeks Friday Five I’m talking some of the products and techniques I use as part of my recovery routine.
Normally at this time of year, I set out what I want to achieve in the year ahead.
Why? Because I love a plan, I need the discipline and the motivation that goals bring. I really believe that the process of thinking, writing them down and publishing them gives those goals more power . It certainly makes me more accountable. But, none the less, this process is an important first step on the road to achieving my goals.
In follow up to recent blog about my experience at the first virtual Revolve24 24hr challenge, I thought I’d share five things I’ve been asked and have talked about this week.
Guy took on the first virtual Revolve24, aiming to cycle over 600km in 24hrs in order to qualify for Race Across America. Did he do it? Find out in his new blog.
‘A ride without a café stop is like a bike without wheels’, a statement from Geraint Thomas which I couldn’t agree with more. One of the many things I found interesting in his book, The World of Cycling According to G, was how he talked about quitting caffeine 2-3 weeks before a big race. As someone looking for all the marginal gains he can get it got me thinking about why he might do this and how it could help me?
Born in the heart of the Chilterns, with an Italian heritage, Grupetto Mergozzi CL known as GP, was a work horse, forged in the fire of endurance cycling. It is with a deep sadness that, today, we say goodbye.

A good pal, Guy Stapleford who is a nut for quirky endurance challenges, took on an Everesting challenge in the Chilterns and has shared the lowdown of his gruelling day of non-stop hill climbing…
Guy takes one of the hardest cycling climbing challanges and makes it harder. 4 Eversting attempts over 4 weeks in order to raise money for the Pace Centre and Action4Youth.
