Tech of the week: Alice Barnes’s Canyon Aeroad and custom bikes

As well as ultra-endurance rides and virtual sequoia forests

We had a look at Alice Barnes’s Canyon Aeroad Disc bike last week. Barnes won both the national championships time trial and road races this year. Her Canyon-SRAM road bike comes with SRAM’s top level Red eTap AXS 12-speed wireless groupset with Quarq power meter and she’s running Zipp Firecrest 202 low section aero wheels. Her geometry gives the classic pro long and low look.

He’s been cycling for a lot longer than that though and his travels by bike have taken him all around Europe and to California. He’s been riding gravel since before gravel bikes existed too, riding a cyclocross bike through the Chilterns and along the South Downs.
