    Summer 2018 is on track to be the hottest and driest on record. For many of us, the lure of an ice-cold beer in the shade is much more appealing than sweating it out in the sun. However, we think it's possible to keep on training and beat the heat. Here's some of Wiggle's top tips:Wear sunscreenThis is number one on our list! Everybody should know by now that sunburn increases the risk of skin […]

  • My Cycling Journey - Stephanie Kitchen
    Posted by skitchen on 20th July 2018 at 3:11 pm

    I’ve always cycled a bit as a mode of transport, for commuting, going to uni or for just getting round town.But I think I really fell in love with cycling the summer I graduated from uni. Me and my friend Brigid got road bikes and toured the coast of Portugal for 3 weeks. We had no gear (just alllll the ideas) a beaten up map, a couple of changes of pants and some cartons of wine. We met […]

  • The Wiggle Mega Meon - The Sunshine and Skids Edition
    Posted by mdaniels on 17th July 2018 at 10:41 am

    We're in the middle of a long, hot summer. For most riders, the biggest concern of the Mega Meon sportive (aside from endless hills) was staying hydrated. I had been having a great time. That is, until my shocking near- miss.  As I approached the last turning off Portsdown Hill Road I was really bombing along. I reached down to cover the brakes ready to slow for the turn. Just […]

  • My Cycling Journey - Rebecca Clarke
    Posted by rclarke on 16th July 2018 at 3:37 pm

    Like most people, I began cycling as a child. My most vivid memory of cycling at this time was riding in a figure-of-eight repeatedly on my front drive. I also remember going on family cycles when we went on holiday, whizzing around with my parents and annoying security guards with tales of my adventures.What I don’t remember was the burning sensation going up a hill or the […]

  • The Wiggle Mega Meon
    Posted by berny on 16th July 2018 at 12:40 pm

    On Sunday I embarked on my third Wiggle Mega Meon sportive. In previous years I had completed the 'Standard' distance of about 67 miles, then the 'Epic' 100 miles. This year the start line was not too far from my home so I thought that I would raise the bar a little and ride the 'Epic' it as part of an Audax. Audax distance is a minimum of 200km or 124 miles so I'd be riding the sportive […]
