“Get yourself a Gravel bike, you’ll love it, we can go on some rides together”. So many adventures seem to start off innocently enough with conversations like this between a couple of mates. In my case the protagonist was a chap we’ll call Jules, mainly because that’s his name and I have no interest in protecting the guilty! I bought a Sonder Camino, we rode the King Alfred’s Way with another mate who we’ll call Dan, I fell off twice, bought some 650b wheels with bigger tyres on, and thought no more of it until another conversation where the word Dales was swiftly followed by the word Divide. Meantime I seem to have developed an aversion to shaving and an attraction to tracks and trails I’ve always previously ridden past. So, from the relative security of hiding behind my COVI(bear)D, I entered the Dales Divide! The beard started out as a bit of

... highlighting the joys of winter cycling around Scotland’s Capital      With a new film Edinburgh-based Markus Stitz and Mark Beaumont encourage more people to enjoy winter cycling in the future. Filmed on a newly created gravel bike route, which follows the local authority boundary of the City of Edinburgh, and additional locations close to the Scottish Capital during January and February 2021, ‘Explore your Boundaries’ is a short documentary that highlights the beauty and challenges of exploring places on two wheels in snow and ice.   Markus Stitz, the first person to ride a single-speed bicycle around the world, and Mark Beaumont, the Guinness World Record holder for the fastest circumnavigation in 78 days and 14 hours, are both Edinburgh residents. Teaming up to film ‘Explore your Boundaries' was inspired by encouraging people to see familiar and local areas in unfamiliar ways, showing how great adventures can happen from your own front door.   Mark

 The Dirt Dashes, a series of gravel and bikepacking events in England, Scotland, and Wales, are back for 2021. All events are a non-timed, self-supported reliability trial with overnight camping and great local food. The £85 entry fee covers the GPX file for navigation and a free Komoot regional map bundle, a tasty evening meal from Winston Churchill Venison at a scenic campsite and a bundle of carefully selected goodies. For the Dorset Dirt Dash there is also a one day 100 mile option with an entry fee of £45. The routes for the events are suitable for gravel and mountain bikes.   There are not many rules apart from ‘don’t be a dick’. The Dirt Dash events originated as the Dorset Gravel Dash back in 2012. Charlie Hobbs, when he was better known as Charlie The Bikemonger, started a 100 mile gravel event, and then added an overnight 50/50 mile option

 In August 2018 Kirk Pacenti left the company to pursue new challenges. The new owners Matt Wiessler and Luke Humphreys bring a wealth of experience to reinvigorate the company and drive it into the future. Matt and Luke are now offering dealer and consumer direct service in the UK, we look forward to working with you all. Pacenti Cycle Design was founded by Kirk Pacenti in 2001. We are a privately-owned international company with offices in the UK and USA. Everything we make began with an idea, and those ideas came from a ride. We prototype and test, engineer relentlessly, and test again. If it doesn't make riding better it doesn't go any further. But if it's a hit—and we've been lucky enough to have had a few, like leading the charge on 650b/27.5" MTB wheels and pioneering wider lightweight rims—we'll put it in production, aiming for the most flawless execution we can muster. When you
