Steel Magazine issue #5

Steel magazine is described as Magazine of the Urban Cyclist. I picked up a copy from Fingerprint Distribution along side my other favourite cycling read Boneshaker Magazine. Steel is published in France and is dual language – one column in French, one in English, which takes a bit of time to adjust to. It’s nice … Continue reading

Tour Blog Day 8

For most people the tour starts on the first day in the mountains. That’s today then! A summit finish is the first chance for the main contenders to show themselves and I think today Froome sent a clear message tat the pre-race favourite tag is most definitely correct.

Tour Blog Day 6 & 7

A proper sprinter won, relegating the self proclaimed “hulk” ( I have an inherent dislike to people that give themselves a nickname, except of course The Dude in the big Lebowski) … Continue reading

Tour Blog Day 2

Here is day two of the blog and I have to admit that I got slightly carried away and drank too much on Sunday, then promptly fell asleep and missed the end of the highlights show last. (confession number two is that I watched two ITV highlights shows back to back as had written the … Continue reading
