Tour of Britain

A couple of weeks ago, the Tour of Britain came to Cheltenham. Stage 7 of the tour saw the riders go from Hemel Hempstead to my town of 3 years, Cheltenham Spa. I found out that the tour was coming to Cheltenham about a year ago and from then, the excitement has been unreal. Having […]

An Evening at London Bike Kitchen
