My Road to Triathlon
I am a 25 year old triathlete living and training in Lancashire, and am very grateful to now be supported by Ribble Cycles. I first tried a kids’ triathlon as my parents attempted to tire out a highly energetic nine year old and I’ve never really looked back! I’ve grown up competing in a wide range of sports and then around the age of 14 I focused my energy on triathlon and the three disciplines involved.Continue reading welcome to Team ribble – beau smith

Alongside this intelligent system there is also an easy to use ebikemotion for ebikes app that can be downloaded to your smartphone.Continue reading ebikemotion app for ebikes – the ribble guide
Shortly before Ribble Pro Cycling’s training camp in Calpe, the team were issued with their 2019 race bikes. In the video of Dan Bigham’s customised team bike Dan himself takes you through the parts he has personally custom fitted. The Endurance SL R Series, upon which he will compete at home and abroad in 2019 is our lightest ever frameset. With an impressive aerodynamic efficiency of 28.5% over our previous race frame the R872. Such impressive aerodynamic performance and super low weight should enable them to enjoy the same great success as they did throughout 2018.Continue reading Dan Bighams Customised Team Bike
The CGR AL is perfect for winter rides; the ability to run with a wider tyre for added grip and comfort coupled with the optional addition of mudguards mean it’s a confidence boosting and practical option for the UK roads which tend to be filthy and often slippery in winter. The ability to add a 47c tyre on the 650B wheelset also means that if the weather turns a little colder and you’d rather avoid the roads, you can easily mix up the scenery, switching to an even bigger tyre to enjoy some time off-road in the snow. It’s a bike that really doesn’t leave you with an excuse to stay indoors.

Why is the Castelli Gabba Such a Good Cycling Jersey?
Such was the unfair advantage given by the Castelli Gabba when it was launched, pro riders who had one would wish for ‘foul weather conditions’ during the early season classics – safe in the knowledge that they were wearing the best.
