New Bike Radar Blog...

The good people at What Mountain Bike have just put this up on the Bike Radar website. Oh yes, the actual What Mountain Bike article is printed in this months edition out now at News Agents near you!

I haven't seen it myself yet...


  1. Nice article, and I bet loads of people will identify with that.

  2. Cheers Phill, I always worry a tad about writing stuff like that. It's a very raw subject for me.

  3. Nice article.

    My ride yesterdays made me realise just how much I need to loose some weight too.

    I had increased the bikes weight by just 6-10kg via a set of panniers. I couldn't believe just how much I struggled on every hill.

    Half way around the ride it dawned on me that i'm far more than 10kg over-weight. The problem wasn't the weight in the panniers, it was the weight around my middle.

    I just wish I had your commitment to dieting. (He says tucking into a pack of biscuits)

  4. I'm not dieting Red. If I was my weight would go up, which is bizarre. History proves that.

    I'm just being sensible permanently...

  5. Brilliant article Clive, as you can imagine, I relate a huge amount with it. Good to know we are not alone in this sturggle :)

  6. Thanks Matt, your endorsement means a lot mate. :-)

  7. Twaz a nice article......I to suffer from a little bit of a addictive personality.....I think :-)

    I have found directing my interests to cycling are a lot healthier...although I am feeling a bit fecked today

  8. Ta JB, your mad mileage would indicate you're right! ;-)

  9. Excellent article! Must have been hard to write. Bet it hits home to a lot of people, certainly did me.

  11. Hi Clive

    Great article, I have a competitive personality so understand where you're coming from, for me going to lunch used to involve me making sure I ate more than anyone else and when you work with a few people 20+ that's a lot. Channelled my competitiveness into my fitness and mileage log against mates instead never want to go back now.

    Ure an inspiration keep it up m8
