Growing up I lived about 100m from the Universal Cycle Centre which is the bike shop owned and run by Dave Marsh.
If you don’t know who he is then you need to read up a bit on British road cycling history!

I realised a while back that, whilst I may have 5 bikes, I don’t have one for just riding into town, doing some shopping, leaving outside the pub etc…

On the 10th of October (having driven for two days on little sleep) I, along with about 60 other lunatics, set off on the 2014 incarnation of the BB200 – a 200km (130ish miles).
