Riding at night is just part of being a cyclist in the winter months. This video showcases the sights surrounding Bristol.
If you’re keen on gravel and dirt rides or races like the DK or Almanzo, then check out the Dirty Reiver event in the UK:
“The Dirty Reiver 200 (200km) and Dirty One Thirty (130km) are off road cycling challenges based on the Gravel Grinder format found predominantly in the mid west of America.
Riders will traverse gravel forest access roads that service the vast areas of forest covering the border region of England and Scotland. The events will take riders through remote areas providing outstanding viewpoints across this spectacular part of the UK.”
There’s something very Dario Argento about this product photo for Brancale’s new winter cycling gloves and I like it. These gloves are made in England, come with a fleece liner and a cognac-colored finish. I’ve used similar gloves in cold weather and love them. Plus, they look great off the bike. They’ll set you back $200, and are in stock now. Head to Brancale‘s site for sizing information and ordering.

“On a recent trip to Yorkshire, I visited the A & T club on practice night. I hadn’t seen speedway racing in-person and I was curious about it. This night there were just a handful of local club members practicing, and I wasn’t able to see the races the following weekend.”
Here’s a video about Three Peaks, a cyclocross race in Yorkshire. It includes an interview with Paul Oldham, a two-time winner of the event about why this race in particular has such a cult-like following.
