  1. As some of you may know, myself and "Wendy" have been talking about moving from SA back to Europe for quite a while now. Our "dream" is to run a B&B / Guest House somewhere near the Pyrenees mountains, either in North Eastern Spain or South Western France. We will cater for anyone wishing to stay, but plan to offer extra services that make us especially appealing to fellow cyclists from around the world. Given our limited budget (and our love of hard work ) the intention is to buy a reasonable priced property in need of renovation that we can tailor to suit our needs. We will then
  2. The Pyrenees - I never get tired of looking at them. . . . . As the title suggests, I'm going to try and fill this thread with all manner of interesting, funny and/or informative cycling related things from this beautiful part of the world and the surrounding areas. :-)
  3. Those of you who have been following the "Big Adventure" thread at I started back in May 2015 will know our story already, but for anyone who has managed to miss it, here's a brief summary: In 2013 we decided we wanted to move from SA back to Europe. I'd been in SA for 8 years at the time (I was also there for 8 years as a youngster) but "Wendy" had been in SA for most of her life. We both have UK (& SA) passports but we really wanted to end up somewhere that at least has a guaranteed summer and the UK does not fit that criteria. Northern Spain was top of my list for several reasons, not
  4. I'm off to Andalusia Spain in a week and have just been told i'll be riding a Rose Pro SL. Never come across Rose before, anyone got one/ridden one? Interested to know what they're like from first hand users. Also, if anyones ridden in this area then route advice would be cool, epic climbs worth doing etc Cheers

  6. Banned cyclist to collect huge damages payout by Agency Staff, February 02 2016, 06:00 Agency Staff February 02 2016, 06:00MADRID — The Spanish government has been ordered to pay more than €720,000 in damages to former cyclist Roberto Heras for his reversed suspension for doping in 2006-08. Spain’s national court in Madrid said in its decision that the amount of €724,904.86 corresponded to what Heras could have earned during his two-year suspension.

  7. This is fantastic news for us - it's where we are going to live! "Huge congratulations to Centro BTT Pirineos Zona Zero in Spain (EWS Round 7) for taking the Pinkbike Enduro Race of the Year Award! The results were decided by 50 of the sport's top riders and media who'd all been at every race this year. Well done to all the events nominated - putting on an enduro race is a massive undertaking and they all did a fantastic job." (Auto translated from Spainish - edited by me!) "It's an honor that the "Specialized Bicycles Opel España Enduro Festival" hosted by Zona Zero in September 2015,

As luck would have it, I will be in Spain for some of that time :-) Hopefully I will be able to get to see a stage or two! Profile for the TTT:
  9. "This cyclist was traveling on a road when a van from Girona passed him within the 1.5m limit, practically brushing against him and threatening his life. The rider wore a camera and this allowed the Mossos de Esquadra to prosecute the driver. The penalty was a 200 euros fine and four penalty points on his license" Video here: http://www.antena3.com/noticias/sociedad/doscientos-euros-multa-conductor-que-acerco-demasiado-ciclista_2015072300526.html (Translated from the Spanish story)
  10. Daryl Impey will represent South Africa at the 2014 UCI Road World Championships taking place in Ponferrada, Spain, from 21-28 September. // Photo credit: Graham Watson. Impey’s inclusion has not been at the expense of any rider on the national team. However, Jay Thomson, who was scheduled to race in the Time Trial, will no longer be competing. Both Thomson and Impey opted not to race the Time Trial as they felt they had not spent enough time on the time trial specific bike in the lead up to Worlds. Impey will focus on the road race. Ex professional cyclist and South African Champion, Robert H
