|Proving itself off -road as well as on.|
If you’re in anyway fashion conscious and are easily swayed by glossy images dreamt up by marketeers, portraying cycling as a trendy, sophisticated ‘lifestyle’. Just the word ‘saddlebag’ is likely to be enough to shatter all your illusions. The mental images you harbour of endless switchbacks, famous alpine cols and smooth tanned thighs the size of trees will have been replaced with Derek from Morecambe*, slogging it out over some barren, northern moorland with only the rain and his pipe for company … if that’s you, off you go, you might as well stop reading now.
Alternatively, maybe you’re the type of person who isn’t swayed by fashion, perhaps you’re someone who knows that rides can be fueled with a Tunnocks tea cake and a mug of tea instead of powders, bars and potions? If you are that type of person, then (a) read on and (b) you’ve probably already realised that Derek’s two thirds of the way through a 400km Audax and has only eaten two jammy dodgers since breakfast.
