Tiny Things at Bueno Bike Lanzarote #LifeofaBikeTourGuide – Vol.7

 

It’s the small things that set us apart!

New Year Resolutions #LifeOfaBikeTourGuide Vol.6

Here’s our list of the big ones

  1. Enroll and finish an Ultra distance bike race exceeding 2,000km
  2. Qualify for RAAM (Race Across America)
  3. Complete a 48hr climbing project on the bike. Target 30,000m of climbing in 48hrs.
  4. Abstain from alcohol (exception: to celebrate completing 1, 2 & 3 above)

We have lots of small things, the usual stuff…..less sugary drinks, less pizza, less chocolate, more fruit & vegetables, more sleep etc.

Call them general lifestyle improvements if you like #easierSAIDthanDONE

2016 in numbers. Life of a bike tour guide Vol.5

What a year 2016 has been! While it’s done and dusted, there were many highlights to the year. Over 25% of my life (excluding an average of 8 hours sleep per day) was spent on the bike this year.

KOM’s 13, but here are the one’s we’re most proud of

Top speed??? We’re not sure maybe 120kph but we had a lot of fun on this one with a top speed of 103kph Actually, here’s 3 youtube downhill videos from that very spin

Shortest spin 2km, we didn’t log all of the short ones…. but this one was just to catch up with friends and wish them a Merry Christmas 🙂

Another climb ticked off the to do list :)

Happy New Year everybody, hoping you all have an even better 2017!
