Preperation After my hour record in June, I found myself lacking in motivation even though the World Championships were only a month away. It took me a full week to recover from the effort required to beat Kyle Lierich’s record and even after that time I still found myself skipping the prescribed workouts or strugglingContinue reading “World Championships, Orgelet, France 2022”
How far can you cycle in an hour? It sounds a simple question, but one that took me 12 months of training to find the answer. As requested, by a grand total of one person (thanks Sonja!), I will give you all an insight into my journey to find out how far a 47 yearContinue reading “How far can you go in an hour?”
Covid has led the racing season to draw to an early close, with Holland’s entry requirements making attendance at this year’s Worlds Championships impossible. However, it has been a great year’s racing. Here is a quick review of the racing highlights (look at the end of the blog section). Fingers crossed for covid free racingContinue reading “Review of the 2021 season”
It has been a busy season, so sorry for the lack of blog posts. As the racing has mostly taken the form of time trials (a non drafting race over a certain distance) I thought a blog post on techniques to help you through the “Race of Truth” would be apt! More posts to come….
First race of the season! Sadly, covid prevented the race footage but we have an interview by our special reporter, Zak Coxon. Hope you enjoy. Visible at the end of the blog section

With my normal awful timing, here is an article on wet weather riding, published just as we are due good weather for the next week. Have a read on how a trike compares to an upright bike in the wet. Let me know if you have any tips of your own! Please view by lookingContinue reading “Ridiing in the wet”
Winter can be hard. For example, we are currently under a blanket of snow. Plus, I have found a really good series on Netflix. As I previously completed research on motivating children to attend the dentist, I thought we could use some of these principles to get us on our trikes. I mean, how badContinue reading “Motivation”
At the end of the blog page you can find part 2 of our little look into the factors that effect trike speed, namely rolling resistance and weight. Something to mull over on these wet winter days… Hope you enjoy
Questions asked by passers-by while riding the trike… 1) Is that dangerous? 2) Are you asleep down there? (slightly hurtful, my Darth Vader like breathing should have been an adequate sign of life) 3) Do you want me to call someone to help you? (genuine question by a pedestrian and probably a result of hearingContinue reading “How fast is a trike?”
