Giro Synthe aero road helmet launched | Cyclingnews.com}

This has got to be the first aero helmet that actually looks good, well done Giro.

Here’s an old video from a trip to the 2001 Vuelta. Great race with footage from the Ordino and a ITT up to Arcalis.

RIP Jose Maria Jimenez

The final 3k of the tour of California. Great to see how Cav moves up through the bunch, elbow to elbow all the way.

1330 Road Cycling » Riding Holidays with Altitude

One of our members has been cycling and living in the Alps for a few years now, snowboarding in the winter and cycling in the summer. 

If you’re looking for somewhere to stay in the alps this summer this could be the place for you, great local knowledge and vast chalet experience and airport transfers.

He’s a little blurb from the very comprehensive website.

AT 1330 ROAD CYCLING WE ARE ROAD CYCLISTS WITH A PASSION FOR CLIMBING (AND DESCENDING) MOUNTAIN ROADS. THIS IS PROBABLY A GOOD THING BECAUSE OUR CHALET IS AT 1330 METRES ABOVE SEA LEVEL, IN THE HEART OF THE FRENCH ALPS. WE ARE IN THE TARENTAISE VALLEY NEAR BOURG SAINT MAURICE, SURROUNDED BY MANY OF THE MAJOR TOUR DE FRANCE COLS … COME AND RIDE THEM WITH US. Chalet 1330 Welcome pageA PLACE FOR ROAD CYCLISTS

All our holidays are based at Chalet 1330 in the Peisey-Vallandry ski area, which is nestled in the picturesque valley between Les Arcs and La Plagne. We are very close to the Vanoise National Park, which has spectacular views all the way to Tignes in the neighbouring valley. We are very well situated if riding in the mountains is your thing, and we cater for all fitness levels and riding abilities. Our typical daily ride begins with a 7k descent down the quiet, twisty, tree-lined road from our chalet and a 10 minute spin along the valley road which delivers you to the foot of La Plagne, Les Arcs, Cormet de Roselend, Col du Petit Saint Bernard or Col de L’Iseran. Head down the valley road in the opposite direction and you’ll find yourself at the foot of the mighty Col de la Madeleine. Within a drive of an hour or so we have Col du Telegraphe, Col du Galibier, Col du Glandon, Col du Croix de Fer and Alpe d’Huez. We’ve got your attention now, haven’t we … ! Landry hairpin

The world’s first bike roundabout will be in The Netherlands, of course - Lost At E Minor: For creative people

This is pretty impressive, it’s incredible what can be achieved when you’ve the space to do it. The unfortunate thing is in UK is the lack of space and budget to do something like this. plus the fact that bike is second to the car here.

Couple if snaps from around wiggins your win. Mr Francis and myself watched him take on the tourmalet then crested a few Cols ourselves. A fun 5 days camping at the foot of the tourmalet, for very little money. Forgive the attire we were waiting for the 
G R A P P A  kit to arrive.
