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
It's taken nearly 18 months, but finally, I finished putting down my thoughts on this very capable trike. It's been through a full winter of constant use in the Borders and has proven itself to be a winner for me. You can read my thoughts here: ICE Sprint 26 Trike
Yesterday I took the trike to work and back - a round trip of 65 miles. Up at 4 a.m. for a 2 hour ride to work and nearly 3 hours home again. I tend to take a detour on the way home to avoid rush hour traffic on the A7 - there's some nice … Continue reading First commute of the year
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

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!
Today I was planning on doing a long day on the Cruzbike but unfortunately it snowed overnight again and the roads were a bit dodgy. So I took the trike instead - 60 miles and 4500 feet of ascent round the Borders' finest countryside. Got a couple of nice descents in which are just amazing … Continue reading Ride Video – Big loop on the ICE Sprint
I took the trike for a shakedown ride today - 20 miles over some very hilly back roads. I bought this trike for 3 reasons - to do easy recovery day rides, pure enjoyment 'enjoy the scenery' cycling, and to cycle when the roads are completely treacherous for 2 wheel bikes. I got a chance … Continue reading ICE Sprint Shakedown Ride
