Manchester Paracycling International C1

Steve Bate and I hadn’t raced on the track since winning the World Championships in March 2018. We wasn’t really sure on how our form would be doing our first track race in 10 months. We had done a few track sessions leading up to Christmas but the sessions were mixed and then I got […]


Here is my first video I have done with me action cam. It’s a really nice decent off Formentor in Port Pollenca in Mallorca. The video doesn’t do the view justice really, and the ride out to the lighthouse is a must if you cycle there.

The final 12 hours

The truth of the matter is, I wasn’t going to even ride the National 12hr. Last year I said the Breckland 12hr I did to go towards the British Best All-Rounder competition, would be the only 12hr I would ever do. I made the decision fairly late to enter the 12hr, as I’d heard Marcin […]

Pursuit of glory!

Pursuit of glory After our success in Rio 2016 we were told last year Rio would host the 2018 Paracycling World Track Championships. I wasn’t all that enthusiastic to return to Rio if truth be told, 12 hours of flying and about a day of travelling in both directions wasn’t something I was looking forward […]

Going the distance

I’m not really sure why I decided to set myself a new challenge, I’ve had a go at most things in road cycling, so I thought this year why not have a go at some longer distances… I had a bit of help for Rio from a bike shop Vive le Velo in N. Ferriby, […]

3 wheels is harder than 2

Back in 2014 after joining the Paracycling team I starting seeing quite a few trikes on a weekly basis. It led me to ride around many a car park on Hannah Dines’ trike on two wheels, with the coaches saying ‘Oi! Get off that you’ll break it! It cost 5000 pounds!’ I never thought at […]

First race back on the Tandem!

  Steve and I had our first outing on the tandem this weekend in the YCF 25 mile Time Trial at Topcliffe, near Thirsk, on Saturday. We were a bit unsure how it would go and had a plan on how to ride. We stuck to it, near enough, and I think even though we […]

Went to see the Queen!

GB paraylmpics and Team GB all got invited to Manchester and London for the athlete parades. We got to Manchester all ready and happy to see all the supporters out to see all the athletes! The crowds were amazing as they were in Leeds but the Manchester weather put a small dampener on the night […]
