Taking on PayPal

November 2013 decided to sell my S-Works Stumpjumper as I needed the spare cash and I was not riding a great deal.  A great bike in excellent condition. In the advertising notes, I'd included that I would prefer the buyer to come look at the bike, and even ride it.  I wanted my beloved bike to go to a happy new owner.

Got a call from plenty of potential buyers, a lot of time wasters and a fair few idiots wanting a top spec bike for daft swaps, or a lot less cash than I wanted.  But…

Which trail and what ideas?

Looking at Andys recent blog.  He gave some really valuable questions.

I drove up on the Friday morning.  The scenery on route is amazing, the road through Glen Coe is…

River Rat Race

Need some advice and a little sponsorship from you guys.  Just entered the Stockton River Rat Race, 10K of running with swimming, kayaking, climbing bridges, jumping from ships, all with many other stuff in the way.  Anyone done anything like this in the past?  If yes, how on earth do you train for it?  Any advice will be gratefully taken onboard.

Will be raising some…
