A run through my winter triking rig.
Climbing and descending the Talla Wall on my ICE Sprint trike
I had a day's holiday from work today and the weather was smiling on me for once - one of those rare Scottish winter days with clear blue skies, crisp air and really cold. So of course the only thing to do is go out for a ride! I'm pretty much riding the trike exclusively … Continue reading Enjoying some quality triking weather
We were out for a lovely tandem ride today - clear sky, crisp cold air and really windy.... must be autumn approaching once again. The trees have started turning their colour this week and there’s a definite chill in the air. Back road to Innerleithen I had the trike out earlier this week too - … Continue reading Farewell summer
Yesterday I took a spin on the trike round the Innerleithen Loop. Weather was not too bad, a little bit of drizzle but otherwise warm and nice to be out after Saturday's pouring rain. In my recent review of the Sprint I talked about the speed I am able to achieve round this loop which … Continue reading Musings on pedal extenders

I was out for a 3.5 hour trike ride on Saturday, over some decent sized hills. The temperature was just below freezing and there was some mist on the tops making it colder. I get Raynaud's quite badly in my hands and feet, so keeping the circulation going can be a huge challenge when the … Continue reading Staying Warm
Happy new year folks, hope you all had a good one. We had a very quiet one in the house which is just the way I like it! When I woke up this morning the sky was completely clear, and although the sun wasn't yet up I could see it was going to be a … Continue reading Start as you mean to go on!
Recently, I switched my bread and butter training bike from the Fuego / M5 CHR two wheelers to the ICE Sprint trike. This is a winter swap and was the main reason I bought the ICE - to keep riding through the winter without fear of road and weather conditions conspiring to cause me an … Continue reading Why every bike rider should own a trike!
