WELCOME I JANUARY 2015


I like to think of myself as a rather rational fella, I’m usually not superstitious. The whole idea of ghosts, paranormal activity, star signs, clairvoyants, Mystic Meg and Russell Grant doesn’t really register on my slightly laidback radar. However this is completely turned on its head when it comes to my cycling.


I possess lucky socks, lucky shoes and on some occasions even lucky charms. If anything subsequently goes awry, it’s always because I wasn’t wearing or in possession of any of the above. I also have a rather annoying habit of not being able to stop on anything remotely associated with the number 13, it’s usually either miles or minutes or even seconds. So invariably my rides are always extended to alleviate my concerns. It’s all a trick of the mind with me searching for some kind of understanding, instead of just simply enjoying the bike and the surroundings.


I acknowledge I must reprogram my psyche to be less responsive to emotional factors and focus on a more logical explanation, like pedal, rotation, propel, ENJOY – it’s that simple!


This issue is our Irish Special and to celebrate we have a diverse array of trips some around Ireland and others throughout Europe. We spend a day with the An Post Chain Reaction Team and discover the joys of the Ring of Kerry Cycle. I travel across the English Channel and discover the joys of the Isle of Wight, Keith Gilks continues his ride with Stephen Roche. Michelle Paget chats to use about the potential of Women’s cycling and we learn who won big at the annual Cycling Ireland Awards in Dublin.


Happy pedalling
