    What sort of cycling do you do?

    I am a cyclist: I love riding any form of bike. At the moment I really love both my road riding and mountain biking equally. Currently my competitive focus is on the road, and I ride my MTB’s for fun.

    Why did you choose your bikes?

    Five29: 29rs are fast, I really like going fast. And…it’s an Orange #rideformichael

    Tarmac: Light and stiff, just what a road bike should be 15.2lbs is light enough for me.

    Enigma: As close to the Tarmac as possible, in Titanium, cos it’s corrosion resistant and damage resistant.

    Clockwork: Fast hardtail, with 29″ wheels, so much fun, and it’s an Orange #rideformichael

    Have you taken part in any cycling events in the past and are any planned for the future?

    I have raced on the road and on my MTB many, many times in the past and loved every minute of it. Now I have a two year old daughter,  there is less time in my life for racing, but I can still fit in plenty of riding. My wife kindly lets me bring my road bike away on holiday and when I am at home I get my competitive edge sharpened by using STRAVA a lot.

    What sort of cycling do you do?

    I like cycling in general. I mainly ride my road bikes as the commute to work would take too long on the BMX.

    Why did you choose your bikes?

    The Tarmac is an uncompromising race bike! Super light and stiff just what you would expect. The best bike I have ridden.

    The Roubaix is perfect for putting the miles in due to such a comfortable ride. It also works very well for the daily commute to work and dealing with all the British weather. Yet still reasonably light and stiff.

    The single speed is always just good for simple maintenance and training through the depths of winter.

    The Spectre was built to be the lightest BMX. A nice contrast to my other bikes.

    Have you taken part in any cycling events in the past and are any planned for the future?

    I did my first race this year. Next year I will be racing as much as possible, with an aim of gaining my 2nd cat licence. I am still aiming on achieving my first 200 mile ride, just not sure quite when that going to happen yet.

    What sort of cycling do you do?

    My main focus is Road Racing. 2013 was my first year and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I like Criteriums but I favour road races as they are more technical and I enjoy riding within a team, using tactics to do well or even WIN!!

    Why did you choose your bikes?

    Wilier- My first road bike! It belonged to a family friend and was offered to me. Being carbon it is both stiff and light which was perfect for what I needed it for.

    Specialized Tarmac Sworks- This is my training bike, although I have raced it a few times. It is stiff and handles well, its also very light which helps when I already have to drag my weight up hills.

    Have you taken part in any cycling events in the past and are any planned for the future?

    I started riding in Spetember 2012 after 2 years of no sport due to a broken arm that didnt heal. I then started road racing in 2013 with a season goal of obtaining my 2nd cat licence which I achieved, along with some race wins :). In 2014 I am concentrating on long distance road racing and I have a few goals that I would like to achieve. During the winter I would like to get into mountain biking and have some fun on the trails. That is if i can keep up with the guys in the shop!
