charliebucketcycles.com is where it’s at

The time has come, the walrus said…..in this case the walrus has indicated that it makes sense to focus my energy on the team blog, Charlie Bucket Cycles.  You can click on our logo above to get to the sight and I hope that if you’ve subscribed to ridefixies you will take the time to follow us at Charlie Bucket.

Why would you want to?  Well, there are plenty of reasons, but surely the most exciting one, is that not only are you dazzled by my writing genius there, but you will also be able to share in the lives of two of my closest friends, Paul and Andy.  We al love to ride our bikes, and it doesn’t really matter what kind of bike it is.  The important thing is that you’re getting out there and riding.

So don’t be shy. Come over to www.charliebucketcycles.com and follow us (the link is in the top left column).  It’s completely free and we won’t pester you with offers and advertising.  You only need to read what’s interesting to you, and frankly the only reason you would want to follow us is if you’re into riding bikes.

ridefixies will remain here for a while but all new content is going to be published at Charlie Bucket.  Thank you for following me up ’til now, and I sincerely hope you’ll come over to Charlie Bucket with me.

New wheels on the roadie

Had to share with you all the joy at my new wheels.  No, not on the Kona, but on the VR2.  You gotta see these bad boys.  Check it out on the Charlie Bucket Cycles site.

Long road to ruin on Charlie Bucket

I posted a quick homemade film of a training ride in Parc Levesque.  You can access it through the Charlie Bucket Cycles blog.  Yes I know I should have been holding the iPhone in landscape mode and not portrait.  I’d like to think it has created an artsy “indie” feel to the film, but really it is just a bit daft.

A Charlie Bucket Century

Andy and I rode a century yesterday as Charlie Bucket Cycles.  You can read all about it at the official Charlie Bucket Cycles web site.  I highly recommend that you bookmark it if you haven’t already!

Ride safe.

Charlie Bucket Cycles

As mentioned in previous blog entries, our cycling team of James, Paul and Andy, aka Charlie Bucket Cycles, is alive and well.  We are awaiting our team jerseys which will sort of ‘seal the deal’ as it were, and in the spirit of solidifying our identity we have started a Charlie Bucket Cycles blog.  You can find it by clicking the link below:


All three of us will be contributing stories to the blog, and whereas the main focus will certainly be our life on two wheels, we’ll also be chatting about our other passions.  All three of us just happen to be mad about drumming, so expect to see some fun musical posts.  Then there will be plenty of colourful commentary on the world of professional cycling, hopefully providing a different angle than the regular sporting press!

Ride safe!
