Holy ship balls! This is good, no better than good this is the best! Road Bike Party by Martyn Ashton was a viral success and was jaw droopingly good. Martyn had a plan to make Road Bike Party 2 and he did, as some of you might be aware he had a very nasty accident which happened between filming this and other shows he performs. So he needed some friends to help out to finish this one and ummm, well just watch. Really hope Martyn the best for the future. This is for me the best cycling vid of the
year fuck that – EVER.
EDIT: Just received more info on this. Click to read more and you should please.
Didn’t think we would stop at £50 did you? Oh ho ho ho no. Here are some ideas in the slightly more generous range. We might even have a super plush top of the pile post left you know but, that would be the last of these mince pies. Happy shopping and buy ethical and local if you can!
Well I would say 2013 was the year where bike-packing came of age (or the 90′s frame bag took steroids, but I won’t encourage doping). There are some great companies making packs and the competition is heating up in the market. It also looks a heap of fun to go bike-packing. I would’ve said light touring (off or on-road) but, hey I don’t market this stuff! I can’t even decide if it should be one word, two or hyphenated. I’m really hoping come the summer I’m up for some light touring (on road for me I think). But I think this sort of stuff is a great direction for cycling to head in. OH and those Genesis Bikes are looking good for 2014. Check them here.
So you’ve probably seen the first of our Christmas Gift Guide by now? Well if not here’s our stocking filler ideas. Now for something that will go quite nicely under the Christmas tree. There’s no reason you couldn’t give cycling inspired gifts to everyone!
Bleedy hansome me luvers. Bit Cornish slang for you. Why? Because Royla is based around Cornwall and the cycling scene there (that I grew up from) . I’m proudly Cornish (and so is our Dan) and expect something from me in this growing publication in the near future and I’m really proud to support this publication. I really think Royla is starting to show itself as being a great publication tooIt’s not just about cycling in Cornwall either, rather cycling with a sometimes Cornish backdrop and you would be surprised by how many Cornish cyclists have gone on to have pro and olympic careers. Get on and if you want a bit of Cornish humour, check this out.
This is a excerpt from an up and coming documentary about the bicycle. If this clip is anything to go by it’s going to be very good. Like so many things these days this one is in need of social funding and I see no problem with that, it’s a great way of doing business. So watch the clip and head over here for more info.
I’m not usually one to get excited about calendars but, this one has got me. I’ve been following Jered and Ashley Gruber’s work for the last year and seeing their images in publication has been fantastic with some real awe inspiring shots. Now there is a chance to own some of those images, teaming up with Drops [check them out here] to produce the nicest calendar you will see in the next 14 months. The smart thing about this calendar is that it’s set-up for keeping the prints after it’s finished being a calendar. The Calendar itself is 225mm x 500mm in size and has fourteen leaves plus a special high quality blind embossed front cover and board back to save that ‘wobbly’ feel you get from many Calendars. Then each leaf has two perforations, one horizontal and one vertical to enable the buyer to seperate the image from the dates and frame the ones you really like! Awesome. Available on pre-order and shelf be shipped out soon after. Order here.
I’m sure every website you visit right now there are numerous posts about what to buy for Christmas and I hope to not bore you all with our ideas on what could be a good ideas for presents. Keeping things simple I will present you with three posts with three gift ideas in each post. The first one is stocking fillers, three things under £10. Christmas doesn’t have to cost a fortune you know!

Shift the TV out of the way, it’s time to replace it with a bike. Who wouldn’t want the opportunity to stare longingly at your pride and joy! .flxble is a wall mounted bike rack created from birch plywood that will help you do just that. It’s manufactured in Berlin and uses a very unique design to create the bend in a single piece of the wood. The design is minimal, there’s a felt lined cut away to rest the top tube of your frame on and straps give strength to the structure. It’s available in 12 colours too. Visit .flxble for more details.
I don’t think i’ve seen a piece of wood ever look this flexible:
