Nice work Jamie. Good reading!
Ride London, L'etape du Tour, going up the Ventoux three times, suffering in the North York Moors, riding from London to Edinburgh (via London!), the women's Rapha Ride, Rosa bike fitting, the Bill Major time trial, the Reunion, vintage photos, action videos....

I'm out of action with an injury so I've had a lot of time on my hands recently. I couldn't interview anyone, so I decided to kickstart these retrospective features by telling my own story of how I first got into cycling as a teenager (before completely abandoning the sport for many years). This is the result:
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
