This month I bring up the contentious issue of turbo trainers or static bikes, whichever you prefer. Like Marmite, you either love them or despise them. Purists think that pedalling without actually moving is a peculiarity bordering on insanity. However a large amount of forward thinking devotees can see the convenience of remaining stationary, especially those with the commitments of family life and the lack of time available to get out and about on two wheels.


I love my turbo, with five kids and limited time, it provides me with the opportunity to expend some energy and stretch my muscles. I accept that nothing beats the experience of the open roads but there are occasions when the turbo is a more than adequate alternative, especially through the winter and the unpredictable weather that it can throw at us. If like me you sometimes get ridiculed, take comfort in the fact that you are maintaining your overall fitness throughout the winter when others neglect their pedalling until the first buds of Spring.


In this Issue we have a selection of inspirational stories and simple rides, we interview Steven Abrahams about his epic challenge to beat the most miles covered in a single year and Margaret Jones gives us an insight into cycling in Egypt. I explore the beautiful landscape in Connemara and banish any mis-conceptions in Essex.


Happy pedalling
