Ride report: Sunday 17 August – North Downs

North Downs. Doesn’t sound like much really, does it? Yet somehow today we managed to squeeze in a variety of freshly uncovered trails, about 28 miles and 2800 feet of climbing (and, obviously, descending!). All in all quite a lot packed into a ride which never took us further than Shere then.

Blood spots on the snow

For a long time now this thought has been nagging at me and recent events have served only to bring it to the front of my mind.

I’m talking about sticking stuff on our crash helmets, more particularly the kind of appendages riders sport to capture their escapades in glorious technicolor. It’s possible you might end up seeing the wrong kind of colour entirely.

A guide to the buying the best helmet cameras
