This June Team BikeRadar Madison will be tackling Hot Chillee’s London-Paris 2012 ride. The team is a mix of experiences and, well, not quite so experienced roadies. We’ll be following their progress in the build up to riding 515km in just three days. Madison’s Will Fripp kicks off our rider diaries…
Andy Ward, former Team Cycling Plus member and our regular answerer of medical queries, took part in his first road race a couple of weekends ago. Good job he’s a GP…
1992 was quite a year. The Maastricht Treaty was signed, Bill Clinton was elected President of the United States and Charles and Eddie had a number one with their timeless classic Would I Lie To You.

A few weeks ago I spent an enthralling couple of days in my loft installing insulation. I found a dead spider, a box full of spices with best before dates in the early 1990s and a picture of a unicorn standing by a waterfall under a rainbow.

Heading your way in the summer, Cycling Plus will be looking into the world of custom bikes. We’ve picked frame builders who offer a variety of styles, materials, design, and finish. We’ll be checking out the services provided by Lynskey, Enigma, and Paulos Quiros. Technical editor Warren Rossiter has got in first and has already been fitted up for a custom carbon race bike from Parlee.
