Sandcastles, sunshine and well-saturated skin this weekend!

This weekend's riding was certainly challenging.

Saturday gave us a pretty stiff headwind to fight and then a helpful tailwind to ease sore legs home. Sunday, on the other hand, saw the rain pour on us here in Bath.

Out on the road, that turned the muddy lanes into a slip 'n' slide and we've heard about a fair few 'offs'. But the rain was perfect cyclocross weather and the mud was so heavy that the bikes are due a second clean tonight!

As ever, you lot were great at sending in your pictures but there can only be one winner and this week's prize goes to a rider that sacrificed the function of her cleats to get a great shot at the seaside!




Congrats to Helzbelzi, we'll be in touch!

But as per usual, let's take a look through some of the best entries...







My Sunday ride had a bit of a #TopGear vibe today... #roadbike #mycyclingweekend

Día 3 de #exploración cruzando la montaña por Caimanes, Illapel, la reserva nacional las Chinchillas, Canela y terminando el viaje en Puerto Oscuro, pasando por el sector más angosto de Chile desde cordillera a Mar. Simplemente una ruta mágica e histórica con túneles y puentes que nos dejaron mucho que aprender. @choikebags ______________________.

We'll be back next weekend with new prizes!

Son of a Marathon runner, Nephew of a National 24hr Champion, the racing genetics have completely passed him by. Liam spends his time plodding his way through cyclocross races, very busy not winning. As an advocate for perfectly clean chains, he can be found cleaning his bike instead of training. A shop mechanic, Liam has many helpful skills, such as being able to identify 'cross tubs by the tread pattern alone. If you bump into him, he'll probably be eating.
