GP’s to ‘prescribe’ cycling? And once again we miss the point!

Without wishing to be over cynical, this really stands no chance at all of making any meaningful impact. Which is a shame as people will die. Please don’t misunderstand, as someone that coaches cycling, nothing would make me happier than every obese person in the UK waking up tomorrow and deciding they want lose weight through cycling… So why is this such a none starter?

New Bike Day! But with a final sting :(

I’m delighted with it!!

For those of you that have been following the saga, you may have wondered if I was going to write about the trials and tribulations of buying a bicycle. Indeed I am, but just wanted to get to the end of the story, with a bike I plan to keep, before recounting the journey…. Today said bike arrived. What was so difficult?

You will be pleased to know that this isn’t going to be another “Zwift” bashing post!! but rather a few thoughts on what I am learning about indoor v outdoor training. Would be pleased get other views too…

Zwift bites back with new partnership

I am no fan of Zwift… As anyone that either reads this blog or follows my Facebook page will know only too well by now! However even I have to concede that their recent announcement; a partnership with British Cycling, does take the debate in a completely different direction. As as an ex-digital strategist, I have to doff my cap to this move. It really does blur the line between physical and virtual in a well thought out way. For sure it will increase take-up of the Zwift platform. With increased take up comes increased opportunity to monetise the platform. A potentially golden future for Swift then. But what is this new partnership all about? Continue reading Zwift bites back with new partnership

Zwift the saga continues

A second attempt at falling in lust with Zwift… Nope that failed too. Not so much as a head turn or slight interest let alone lust, passion or love! I seem to have managed to get a bit further with it in that not only is my trainer connected,  but I managed to find something claiming to be a workout, but having started it I had no idea what was coming up or what phase I was in. The turbo appeared to be relatively free wheeling and this dull as dishwater experience continued for ten minutes.  Continue reading Zwift the saga continues
