And then there was wine.

This one was for Leo Hillinger and now enjoys being ridden in the Austrian Winelands. Take yourself for a virtual tour of his estate here and imagine the smell of ripening grapes oozing off the vine and the fresh country air whistling through the vents in your helmet.

Can you picture it?

Perhaps not an unfamiliar experience for South Africans enjoying their own paradisaic wine country.

Comment and let us know what you think of this one (and if you’d like more pics)…


Let’s put 2017 in our saddle bags

We’ll be diving out of this year on 22 December and rolling in for some post-holiday hellos on 3 January.

May your bikes be with you.

And then with us.

And then with you.

It’s a cycle, you see?

There’s a cycle in everything and everything’s in cycles because CYCLING is IN everything and IS cycling everything.  That’s why cycling is EVERYTHING, for some.

Perhaps you’re feeling you’ve reached the end of your tether/going a bit mad like us and can’t wait to escape to an island somewhere to commune with the fishes and sand lice.

It’s just that time of year so don’t despair.

You have a whole ‘nother year coming up to go mad in so save your tether for that.
