The first, rather informal meeting of our industry cycling group. (Someone, please, suggest a club name with a decent pun in it.) Fifty-odd miles around the hills of Kent. From left: Hercules and Chris, Edward Green; me; Andy Murphy, Cleverley; Samuel, Troubadour leather goods; Charles, Turnbull & Asser; Euan, Edward Green.

Samuel was kind to us, given his ex-pro status, and Andy did very well given that apparently they don’t have hills in Essex. Douglas, Ollie, Alex etc – no excuses next time.


Euan gets very excited at conquering a hill.


Garmin-checking time.

simon, do you find that doing a lot of sport such as cycling changes your body shape, or mean a change when you go through of a period of not being so active, which results in bespoke clothes not fitting as well? personally I try and regulate my exercise regime now so I don’t change so much in order to keep an optimum fit .. is this bizarre behaviour on my part? it seems upsetting to have a tailor worry about 1/16 of an inch when a waistline is capable of moving 1.5 inches depending on physical activity.

Good stuff Simon. Now for some bespoke cycle wear?

Bespoke cycle wear, No (we have Rapha after all) but Bespoke bikes definitely mines we have some excellent frame builders in the UK.
