Way Out.

If you believe that American small handed orange faced gibbon you might believe that the NHS is on its knees, of course he wants to say that because the US medical system is shit and only caters to those with money. On Tuesday while out playing bike my heart rate spiked at 237 bpm and…

Still working through my damage.

Prior to my crash life wasn’t perfect, far from it, I had the same problems as everyone else. No matter how much I earned it wasn’t enough but the standard of living was great. I was born in poverty, the houses that I grew up in were knocked down by the time I was 7…

I like to ride my bicycle, I like to ride my bike

We’ve all had those relationships that seem to go on a bit longer than they should with the ever so inevitable emotional break up while both people try and figure out how things went so sour, this is kind of where I’m at with cycling. Playing bikes is the only thing I have left really…

Wiggo

I started writing this before the DCMS report came out. People still snipe at Wiggo from the margins jiffy this, hayfever that, SKY MADE YOU!!!! When the bruhaha around Wiggo took off a little part of me died. There’s a feeling that Wiggo traded when he won the tour, while he got to be the…

Ride London 100

I’ve not really done much of anything in the last couple of weeks let alone ride a bike, my Tarmac, its back wheel connected to the turbo trainer, a D&G jacket slung over the saddle and stuff draped from the bars. It seems that I can only ride indoors for so long before geeing myself…

So close

The 28th December I finally got round to killing myself, obviously it didn’t work although not for the want of trying and I ended up in hospital. I have this suicide hangover, left with this mental void. I’m alive but not living, mentally it’s a strange place to be, I can have a perfectly good…

Leisure Doping

All of you amateurs talking about suffering on your bike are idiots, who in their right mind wants to suffer anything, it’s as though to some people cycling is some sort of self punishment, you might as well take yourself into the stable with some rose thorns and give yourself a jolly hard flagellating. I…

Bob, Chad and Molly

Decades ago Trek Bikes took a steaming great shit all over Greg LeMond, they basically took a multi million dollar business partner behind the wood shed. What resulted was a messy legal nightmare of corporate America kicking the living shit out of one of the most loved cyclist the sport has produced and I took…

The Sky Fanboi Spasm

Sky fanbois on twitter have been having a collective spasm over the last week trying not to let their arses drop out over Froomey rather spectacular failed urine test and it says a couple of things about their mentality. Putting my pole in the ground I’m one of the people that say Chris cheated, as…

Eddy Merckx….. what does he know?

That often meme’d quote about riding upgrades and not buying them. Utter tosh Mr Merckx. Last year, from my hospital bed with reduced impulse control from my brain damage I took my debit card from my wallet and bought a bike, it looks nice, it rides well but it’s not the off peg number I…

Bring on the chemical cosh

This week I’m waiting to be medicated for my own mental health, I had a meeting with a doctor and spoke about the problems I have since the crash. Physically I’m weaker, my fitness has nosedived but as with the wounds which become scars the physical ability might will come back to me after all…

Chris Hoy.

We can all agree that when it comes to going fast on a bike Chris Hoy will be remembered in a way very few others will be, as a cycling pundit however he seems to be a bit of a cock. Watching the Tissot track racing from Manchester over the weekend some idiot at the…
