Looking forward to 5pm tonight, 19 June, out tutoring a chap who hasn’t ridden in a few years. So, taking it easy and heading out towards Bibury I think, on nice roads with a few gentle corners. Its also a great place to stop, debrief and carry on again from.

Things I look for on a first ride such as this:

  • Cornering
  • Positioning
  • Systematic
  • Safety
  • Stability
  • Gear changing
  • Rural and Urban riding

I also consider the 4’S:

The 4 S’s

Lots to think about, but really looking forward to it.

Planning for next year

Touring is a bit of a write off this year, but Stuart and I were chatting this week about trips next year. Got some ideas forming so please pop back soon, with the first one around Easter, or even earlier in March! Mix of continent and UK based.

If you have an idea of a trip, let us know what you like to see and do and we can sort out the planning for you.
