  • James Macdonald
    James Macdonald I use my bike to commute, run errands and enjoy leisure cycle rides. Most of my daily personal journeys are under seven miles. Weather permitting, I cycle longer rides with a group and have not lost the sense of adventure that is part of cycling.
  • David Lane
    David Lane Ive been cycling for about 4 years now and orginally started to lose some weight. Well I caught the cycling bug and now have a garage full of bikes!! I spend most weekends cycling for leisure with Windsor Great Park and the surrounding area being one of my favourite haunts and generally stick to road cycling but do enjoy going off road now and again. Its a great way to get some fresh air and exercise, particularly when you are stuck in an office all week! Im signed up for a number of charity rides this year and have entered some off road endurance events aswell. Hopefully I will see you on a Sky ride soon.
