Specialised Stumpjumper Comp with a few Hope bits chucked on for good measure.
Merida Speeder T2 for the roads and touring
Dawes Switchback Tandem...just for fun with the missus
Cakes. Holden Wood, Helmshore have some of the best at the minute.
What’s in the Camel Back?
Tea or Coffee
Latte. Just to wind up the true ‘Northern Blokes’ that come riding.
Warm Beer or Cold Lager?
Guinness. Or most of Fallons’ Dark Ales
Les Gets. It’s got it all. Good trails, bike lifts, sunshine, good cafes, great scenery, good looking girls on bikes....oh and Gisburn ain’t bad too.
Best Achievement to Date on a bike
Recently. 230 miles in one 24 hour bash from Stirling back to Darwen Bus Station....and why not indeed.
Got on a bike aged 11 and haven’t stopped since....
...except to go to the loo ...(B4 any smartassses get in with that one)
Greatest riding inspirations.
Lance. Just an inspiring story and seeing him in the flesh last year was worth the effort.
