That ride for them was all about getting back to basics; about focusing on the simple pleasure of riding a bike, away from the pressures of professional racing. After moving […]

From long, challenging climbs with breathtaking vistas as their reward, to rolling ribbons of tarmac that thread their way through the seemingly untouched wilderness, Tassie has it all.
