"2016 version was a very early start, but worth it for a great day out.
Extremely well organised. Coffee & croissant on the ferry and then you get to blast around France with its friendly natives and wonderfully smooth tarmac. The car drivers are so well behaved they risked having any accident rather than impede a bike rider!
The 3T Ergonova Pro sets a new standard in comfort riding thanks to the egg-shaped section at the top of the bar. This gives a more comfortable grip for the hands especially over long distances. Looks great too with the black/white design.
Muc-Off have now added Nano technology to their award winning cleaning formula. So why is Muc-Off with Nano better? Because the Nano sized particles contained in our revolutionary formula will remove dirt and grime with even less effort!
Warm stretchy full finger gloves with a Thermoflex back panel and a Clarino synthetic leather palm for feel and durability on cool weather road rides. Ideal for fighting the chill in Autumn and early Winter conditions with no loss of feel and control.
"Very comfortable bar tape with a quality appearance that provides the perfect finish to your set of wheels. Previous set needed to be replaced after less than 1 year as it was getting worn through. Had done a good number of miles, but I had expected it to last longer."
The DataTag Stealth is simple to fit and includes both visible and hidden identifiers including the latest state-of-the-art "stealth" UV etching that won't visibly mark you cycle and gives your bike a unique finger print.
"3rd bike with Datatag protection, but the product seems to decline with each version. Now you get no chip, but a series of stencils & markers. The UV stencil application is a act of faith as you can't see an invisible stencil! The micro dots leave unsightly blotches. The QR sticker looks the business though."
Cons: Expensive, Not Enough Features, Unattractive
Exclusive to Wiggle. Get the most out of your swims with the Zoggs Predator Print Panel Jammer, offering ultimate performance and moulding to the contours of the body like a second skin, reducing drag for a more hydro-dynamic swim.
"Quality feel to these swimmers. Very stylish and certainly are low drag in the water. The are though very tight around my (road cycling) thighs. Not to the point of being uncomfortable, but you certainly notice it. The next size up would have been too baggy around the waist,"
Pros: Attractive, Durable, High Quality, Lightweight

Designed for performance cyclists, Edge 500 is small and lightweight. It tracks speed, distance, GPS position and elevation, so you can get the most from your training and racing. Bundle includes Premium HRM, Speed and Cadence sensors.
How good is the Edge 500 in cloudy conditions?
There are no problems with clouds . The edge 500 can on occasions lose signal under dense tree cover, but usually very good and if it does lose he signal will regain it very quickly when back in the open.

Sirius Soft Gel Folding Magnetic Turbo Trainer
Tacx launches a new innovation! The Sirius is a striking cycletrainer featuring a "silent" action.
Can I use my 26 inch wheel mountain bike on the trainer?
Yes - I use my old MTB on this trainer. I've put a slick 26 x 2.1 tyre on the rear. There is loads of adjustment so could take even larger fat tyres. Would not recommend using knobbly tyres - the vibration & noise will drive you nuts!
