The effects of coffee – it’s official!

 Steve Ranger     January 4, 2021   

For those of us to whom coffee is central to cycling. it’s good to have our prejudices reinforced so at Cycleshack we’ve done a bit of digging to see whether coffee is good for cycling. There has been plenty of research showing that it’s good for cognitive decline, although some of our shop staff did […]

The new Fix Your Bike voucher scheme was introduced today, with 50,000 vouchers being issued.

South Downs Way 2 – The Battery Test

 Steve Ranger     June 6, 2020   

As social distancing made it more difficult to go riding with Rob, my co-rider in part one, I decided to continue in a slightly different way by starting at the end point from last time (my house in Lewes), and seeing how far one e-bike battery would take me. From last time you may remember […]

The joy of local

 Richard Roberts     April 10, 2020
