Wow I’ve just tried to Google ‘Best Cycling Routes in the World’, and predictably the number of sites I came across with routes of all lengths and complexities shows me there’s no such thing as a universal Top 10. No surprise really because cycling is a very personal pursuit, it may that fitness is your number one priority, it may be the sense of adventure or the ease and economy of commuting, that keeps you in the saddle. One thing is for sure, choosing your Top 10 rides requires as much research as choosing a new saddle. It’s likely to be expensive, time consuming (let’s face it: all consuming) and expensive, but well worth it.
Whether you have only ever raced home from the Pub on a glass or two of something stronger than squash, or you have tackled stages of the Tour de France and other great rides across the globe, in the shadow of the dreaded Sweeper Wagon, you will know that in the saddle you are a different person. Life feels different behind the pedals, autumn colours are more vibrant, the World a more wondrous place. Perhaps you’re a demon on the track and you’ve made the velodrome, cleats and bib shorts your home from home. Imagine a world without cycling and suddenly the World seems a smaller, more confined place.
For everyone, cycling is becoming more accessible. Cyclists of all abilities are being tempted by lycra-clad initiatives to go forth and cycle, thank you Boris! If Wiggins is the Pied Piper then we are the children, we’ve already bookmarked our favourite cycling Websites, bought the gear, uploaded the route and downloaded Strava, greased the chain, pumped the tyres and been up hill and down dale looking for our favourite routes.
Be sure that this medal hanger is the next must have of the experienced and the budding cyclist. Sure you could choose one of our other wonderful designs, but if it is really oil that runs through your veins you will only want this one; in fact, you’ll demand it. Striking, streamlined and heading in the right direction, this hanger will hold all your favourite medals. Rest assured, stainless steel doesn’t puncture and this will shine long after you’ve put your ‘summer bike’ lovingly away for the Winter season. If you need any training incentive make it this, your medals for 2013 will hang until you earn more in the years that stretch ahead of your wheels.
