It's been an exciting few weeks in the world of bike tech – if all stories were created equal, it would have been extremely difficult picking out which to run with. Luckily for us, at least, there's been some clear corkers standing up above the rest. 

We dig into the performance of Shimano’s Ultegra groupset, take a look at some new top-of-the-range road shoes which are lighter despite being wider, there's Enve’s 2022 SES line up that’s been built for “modern road racing” and Pinarello’s “pure performance” off-roader that’s been adapted to better meet the demands of gravel racing.

I’ve been hooked on bikes ever since the age of 12 and my first lap of the Hillingdon Cycle Circuit in the bright yellow kit of the Hillingdon Slipstreamers. For a time, my cycling life centred around racing road and track. 

But that’s since broadened to include multiday two-wheeled, one-sleeping-bag adventures over whatever terrain I happen to meet - with a two-week bikepacking trip from Budapest into the mountains of Slovakia being just the latest.

I still enjoy lining up on a start line, though, racing the British Gravel Championships and finding myself on the podium at the enduro-style gravel event, Gritfest in 2022.
