Welcome to the Enjoy Cycling Blog
The Enjoy Cycling Blog created by me and for my love of cycling in this great country. My love of cycling stems back to when I had my first Raleigh bike when I was a child, little did I know that was the first in a long line of cycles I was to own over my lifetime. Back then I used to Enjoy Cycling around the Northumberland countryside through fields and rolling hills without having to dodge traffic like my current routes involve. The carefree cycling in Northumberland is a far cry from the hustle and bustle of my morning commute up Wilmslow and Oxford road in Manchester.
Throughout the years I have owned many cycles and each one has seen me cover hundreds if not thousands of miles perched on my iron horse peddling away. Looking back at my childhood my favourite bike must have been the Raleigh Striker, this tough bike had a hammering I like every child would fall off, throw it on the ground and generally ride it to within an inch of its life.
From my Raleigh Striker I have owned cycles such as a Raleigh Mustang another tough and durable bike, a Falcon Raphier which was my introduction to road bikes. In my later years I enjoy cycling on my second Specialized Rockhopper as the Rockhopper for me is the bike of all bikes, so comfortable to ride and hard wearing. Take a look at my Specialized Rockhopper 2012 Review to find out my thoughts on this iconic bike.
This cycling blog is all my own thoughts about how I enjoy cycling and how I want to spread the word about this great sport. If you have any news or articles you would like to submit to the site let me know by using the contact form on the site. I will consider all contributions to the site and lobe to hear about how you Enjoy Cycling.
