Taken during the End to End cycle. August 2009

Cycling is something that I really love doing. It helps keep me fit and it gets me out the house. Which is a very good thing indeed, or I would just spend all my time playing on the net and watching way too much TV.

I enjoy cycling so much, that I have three bikes, which are Trek 830 and Trek 8.3 DS Hybrid. The Trek 830, is the one that I use when up in Killearn, Scotland seeing my friends and family. I use Specialized Crosstrail Sport Disc ’16 and the Trek 8.3 DS Hybrid ones the most, since they live with me in South Witham, England.

Do I wear Lycra while cycling?

Yes of course. When you do has much cycling as I do, you really need to. Wearing a good pair of cycling shorts, helps to stop me from getting a sore bum. They also stop the wind from slowing me down so much. Even better still, they look and feel great on.
