Re: Cycling Holiday - South Mallorca or Mainland Spain?

Thanks everyone.

Was actually thinking of Portugal/Algarve last night as an option. Any recommendations on where to stay/bike hire shops/bike friendly hotels etc?

Cycling Holiday - South Mallorca or Mainland Spain?

Starting to think about next years cycling trip as a few of us plan to get away in April. Have staying to PP for the past 4 years so fancy a bit of a change. I have also been to Girona for the past two years which I loved, but it isn't as easy as Mallorca with the half board hotels and our direct fl...

Re: Cyclocross Newbie

Thanks everyone for the comments and advice so far.

The Shimano PD M540 seem to be a sensibly priced choice and I will probably match them with a pair of Shimano MTB shoes and I use Shimano road shoes and they fit me well as I have a wider foot

Cyclocross Newbie

Completely new to the world of cyclocross and picked up a 2019 Vitus Energie CR at the weekend. Hoping to use it as a bit of an all-rounder for exploring local lanes, winter bike with mudguards and hopefully a few local cyclocross "b"/support races. What pedals are commonly used in cyclocr...

Re: Girona

Thanks wOOdster for the info. Much appreciated. Just realised my initial post said "package" instead of "breakfast". No idea what I was thinking when writing that...!

Girona

Hi all, Taking the OH to Girona for 3 days cycling at the end of September and would appreciate some recommendations on routes. She should be fit for decent miles each day as long as it isn't overly tough and we would like to tick off a few of the "must do's". We are staying in the old tow...

Re: CHPT3?

Bought one of their short sleeve jerseys in a recent sale. Although made by castelli, the quality is definitely better than my other castelli jerseys. It isn't a race fit jersey but was very comfortable and practical for a long day on the bike. Overall, I'm very happy for the price I paid, but would...

Re: S Works SL6 Tarmac Custom build

Great build and nice to see the silver. A set of Rovals and black bartape will totally transform it.

Enjoy it, they are great bikes.

Re: Canyon Ultimate CF SLX

Thanks everyone. The boras will be its every day wheel, I doubt the deep rims will see much action but I picked them up a decent price and they will be good for racing.

Spacer stack will hopefully reduce a bit when I get the fit sorted
