Three Peaks Cyclocross 2018 by Christina Wiejak

Velo Ulverston | 05/10/2018 15:19:00

For my previous 3PCX races, I did a little write up, which a few people said they’d enjoyed reading. So, after my third year, I’m following tradition. If you’re reading this having raced, I hope that you enjoyed your ride as much as I did. If you’re thinking about having a go, stop thinking and do it. It may be.... More

Winter Riding Motivation- just get out and ride!

Velo Ulverston | 26/01/2018 14:45:00

Need some winter riding motivation? You’re not alone! We’ve had our shortest day, but there still seems to be a never ending cycle of wind and rain. It’s easy to let the days pass without a ride, finding every excuse in the book to avoid getting out on your bike. It’s too cold, wet or windy. My.... More

Three Peaks CX by Christina Wiejak

Velo Ulverston | 29/09/2017 16:31:03

I decided to do a bit of a ‘write up’ of my day, mainly because I don’t work Tuesdays, and so it’s bike day. However, I'll be honest, to win the women’s title at the 3 Peaks CX this year, I had to dig very very deep; consequently, I was broken. Typing seemed more appealing! If anyone enjoys.... More

Specialized Ruby Expert-First Impressions by Christina Wiejak

Velo Ulverston | 21/12/2016 11:25:00

Given that the new Specialized Roubaix has recently been recognised as ‘Endurance Bike of the Year’, I was eager to get out for a ride on one of Velo Ulverston’s demo bikes from the Roubaix/Ruby range. I’ve previously ridden a high end model of the Ruby (the ladies’ version of the Roubaix) on a 10 mile loop,.... More

The 3 Peaks - a harsh introduction to cyclocross! By Christina Wiejak

Velo Ulverston | 07/10/2016 16:10:00

I've just completed the 2016 3 Peaks Cyclocross; it was hard, but in a very unique way. I’m familiar with tired legs, but this was different. This race tested my mind, because when I glanced up to the top of those climbs to see distant figures across the top, I didn't know when or how I was going.... More

Parkamoor and the Three Witches

Velo Bikes Grizedale | 21/06/2016 11:44:00

The Parkamoor and the Three Witches loop is a Grizedale classic. It can be added into other Grizedale loops to make a longer ride or done on it’s own. It’s one of those routes that delivers a little taste of everything the South Lakes has to offer in a mountain bike ride. Open fells, awesome views, twisty woodland single track.... More

PMBA Enduro Round 4 6th June 2016 – “The secret location” around Grizedale otherwise known as Graythwaite by Dan Stafford

Velo Bikes Grizedale | 07/06/2016 13:03:03

  This round was held at a previously unused and private estate called Graythwaite estate in the South Lakes. A good effort was made of social media introducing teaser videos in the run up to the event of what turned out to be five truly fantastic stages. The continuing extraordinarily good weather here in the South.... More

PMBA – Lee Quarry Enduro

Velo Bikes Grizedale | 20/05/2016 13:25:40

2 Days, 1000s pedal strokes, 7 hours and 42 minutes riding, 7844 feet of ascent, 3111 calories, 27 degrees Celsius temperature, 10 litres of water, gallons of sweat, 190bpm heart rate and 2 crashes.
