Remember the ‘What am I on?’ Lance Armstrong advert? If not, here it is to refresh your memory.

Some would say this ad is beyond parody, but that hasn’t stopped me trying. Here’s what I’m on…

The Livewrong Manifesto

This is my body, and I can do whatever I want with it (behind closed doors and with other consenting adults). I can eat too much, drink too much, and listen to the creaking sounds my joints never made five years ago. Provided I have my wife’s permission, I can even ride my bike.

Everybody wants to know what I’m on. Mostly, the sofa. But just wait until January. Then I’ll be on my bike at least six hours a week getting a sore arse. Unless it’s cold or raining. What are you on?


That Geoff Waugh fellow is quite handy with a camera, and it turns out he can shoot and edit a pretty mean video, too.

Geoff says The Three Peaks cyclocross race is the toughest there is. I might just give it a try next year, if only to see if Geoff is right.

I like to think I can ride a bike. Then I watch a video like this. I met Chris Akrigg once and he’s a throughly nice bloke as well as an amazing rider.

At some point I may get around to writing another blog post. In the meantime, you might enjoy this.

Are those things made of breadsticks painted black to look like carbon? I’m referring to the seat stays, obviously, not Thor Hushovd’s thighs. Interesting looking bike from BMC.



Why spend a small fortune on an expensive bike fitting from the likes of Cyclefit or Retul when all you need to know is handily published on the outside of this bike box?
