How to have a baby, pick up a bike and take the win – Carrie

When Nick Hamilton asked if I would race the Howard St Dual slalom race that he was organising down the streets of Sheffield as part of the Outdoor City Weekender, I was a little unsure. My last race was September 2015 before I became pregnant and had a baby in November 2016, so I was […]

First time at Bike Park Wales – Jael

Finally, the day is here the BPW road trip begins. Thankfully not too much of an early start. We set off about 8:30am and cruised down to the Forest of Dean. Once there, we (my mum, my dad and I) got ready and waited for our mates to arrive. While we were waiting, my mum […]

Welsh Summer Holiday – Laura Griffiths

Lately its been a lot of work and squeezing in play time on the bike on the occasional day off so a short break was a welcomed relief, with only a few days to make a long weekend we headed to south Wales to make the most of our time away, we returned to the […]

Fat bikes are just a fad, right? – Sophie Nolan

As winter approaches most of us morn the long summer nights spent riding our bikes. As we  dust off the turbo trainer with hideous flashbacks to the winter before sat in the lounge, red faced in a pool of sweat watching premature christmas adverts we wish for spring to arrive.

Then again, despite how many days we have, Scotland is always the favourite destination for adventure! For a few years I’ve loved combining my lifelong passion of walking in the hills, with my relatively new found passion of […]

9 Reasons to Ride Your Bike More – Jessica Pyper

In case you haven’t noticed, we, at Flare, LOVE to ride our bikes. Basically when we’re not out riding our bikes, we’re either eating to refuel for our next bike ride, sleeping so we’re awake enough to ride our bikes, creating new clothes for biking, or making friends/ hanging out with people who also like […]

Training for the Beast – Rachel Norman

After partaking in my first event last year, the Hopetech Women’s Enduro, I’d got the bug and I was itching to sign up for more. I wanted something to train towards to keep my fitness up and improve on my mountain biking ability. I thought the Hamsterley Beast fitted all the criteria needed for such […]

Mad March – Liz Peacock

Looking at my calendar, March always seemed to be a bit busy… As it turns out living through it was quite an experience – lots of fun was had, many many miles driven, lots of new biking friends made and just about every variation on weather encountered… February left us, and I was optimistic that […]
