Firstly I should apologise to any regular reader of this site for not updating it sooner, I do however have a good excuse; I have been really busy at work and every moment of spare time has been filled with riding. I do promise to give this site more attention and update it a lot more regularly now summer has ended (call me a crap weather blogger). I have recently returned from one of the best cycling/work trips I have been on, far to much happened to put it in just one post so today I will cover the first part of the trip.
The awesome guys at Met Helmets flew Juliet Elliott and myself over to Italy to shoot a video for their new 2014 range of helmets. We began in Lake Como and worked our way to Switzerland, stopping to take in and film some of the most beautiful views I have ever seen, We spend two days riding up and down some of the most amazing roads, and although it was only 5 degrees and we were in our summer kits our faces expressed nothing but smiles. I have an awful memory so can not remember the names of everywhere we went, but if you check out Juliet’s blog she has all the details there. The two places that really stood out for me were Splugen in Switzerland and the Madonna Del Ghisallo in Italy.
One thing that made the trip even more enjoyable was the bike I was riding, the lovely people from Moorelarge/Todays Cyclist lent me a 2014 Moda Stretto to use for he shoot, I will do a full write up of this bike at a later date, all I will say for now is wow and if you are looking at getting a new bike definitely give Moda’s 2014 range a look. This trip could not have been any better, the riding, food and company were all second to none. I have never done so much riding and came back feeling so refreshed! Whilst you are waiting for Met to finish the video make sure you check out their 2014 range, they really have something for everyone. I want to say a huge thanks to Jean Pierre from Met for everything, the home cooked meal and presents from your daughter were a highlight, thank you!
