Thanks for stopping by!
I have spent years searching for the best rides, the ones that linger in your memories long after you’ve left. They are the rides that mix incredible scenery with quiet, twisty roads and a real sense of achievement. That could mean the empty road to Formentor lighthouse as the sun comes up or a ride along a meandering estuary in Brittany in the orangey light of early evening. At other times it could mean grinding the gears up Ventoux in a howling gale or taking on Mount Baldy in the searing midday sun.
I have found epic rides all over the world, in the obvious places (think classic training camp destinations like Mallorca and Grand Tour climbs of the Alps) as well as the not so obvious (ever thought of Barbados or the Isle of Wight?).
This is where my small team and I share the best of what we’ve found.
We hope you love what you find. If you do, make sure you sign up to our email list so we can keep in touch!
