FreeMaster Prescription Cycling Glasses – An unbiased review.

I'd never given prescription cycling glasses a thought before as I, until recently had worn contact lenses for nearly thirty years, I started wearing them in my early teens, honest! Okay it may have been VERY early twenties, but definitely no later than that. Unfortunately after a painful eye infection I was advised to cut down my wear time from fourteen hours a day, seven days a week to no more than eight ...

Northwave Fahrenheit GTX (Gore-Tex) Winter Road Shoes review

I bought my Northwave Fahrenheit February 2013  and have worn nothing else since.  I think the purchase of these boots still constitutes the largest amount of money I've ever spend on one 'thing' for cycling, and it was worth it more than anything else I've bought, possibly more than some bikes I've owned!
