You might have come accross our veloccino socks on various social media accounts worn by people we have interviewed on the podcast or elsewhere already. Get your hands (or feet) on some of the finest cycling socks out there. Our socks are produced 100% according to our own ideas in terms of design, features and fabrics.
When we decided to produce our own socks it was important to us to offer the best possible product at a digestible price point. We added a technical mesh for enhanced breathability and an ant-twist compression band around the mid foot to ensure the socks are remaining in place at all times.
That was a muddy and rainy day out there at Aston Hill! Just on our door step! The first proper downhill race in the area! It was great watching the girls & boys blasting down the mucky trail!
I was lucky enough to spend a day with one of the best sport photographers around to learn a lot of tricks and tweaks about shooting fast moving objects in low light conditions! Thank you Mark Pain for taking the time and guiding me through this!
Find below a couple of my favourite shots from the day.
This is just a tiny selection of the photos I am most proud of. I have plenty more photos added to our facebook page (facebook.com/veloccino)
Tough Runner UK organised the Buckinghamshire Duathlon in Wendover Woods las Sunday. Some of our friends decided to dip their toes into this inaugural event on our door step. The weather was on our side, Sunshine and a mild temperature made us feel as if the winter is finally over.
It was great to see our friends suffering hard in this fantastic event. It was great from a spectator and as I got told also from an athlete point of view.
Well done to our Team veloccino members and our friends!
On Saturday Nick and I had a couple of hours to burn. We decided to go on a bit of an off-road trip around the Chilterns to a. avoid the wet roads and b. try out something different to our usual riding.
Nick plotted the route online and did not shy away from addidng some ridigulous hills in. Thanks for that! The route took us out of Wendover to the top of Coombe Hill which has the most beautiful view to offer! If you have not been up there, definitely worth a visit!
From there we wiggled our way towards Cadsden to stop at The plough pub which famously made the headlines when David Cameron brought the Chinese Prime Minister in for a pint a couple of years ago. Rumours have it that it’s since is rebuild 1:1 somewhere in China.
If you are looking for a kick-ass, arty-farty coffee you will be wrong here. Filter coffee it was! Absolutely fine with us but maybe not in everyone’s taste.
We cracked on via Whiteleaf Hill to go a bit back on-road towards the Buckmoorend Farm Stop. From here we rode up to Dunsmore and back to Wendover.
We just returned at the weekend from our trip to Girona.
We stayed with a group of 8 for a few days. Another group arrived on Wednesday for another few days when the others left.
Expect a couple of posts coming up over the next few days. We have plenty of photos from various cycling hot spots in and around Girona and – obviously – plenty of stuff to tell about the Girona cycling festival.
