It's been a year almost since my girlfriend started to show an interest in cycling and took the plunge with a nice white On One Inbred which has been upgraded many times with pink parts and looks great if you ask me. She loved riding that much she wanted to give the road a try too. This time she went for black with pink upgrades in the shape of a Planet X Pro Carbon and I think this looks great too. I think some people just put pink parts on bikes just for the sake of it and it can look awful but I think she's done a tasteful job of it. In a year my girlfriend has gone from a cycling sceptic to a cycling nut and with a genuine interest in all things cycling from watching racing on eurosport to watching videos on YouTube about bike maintenance. We have been mtb orienteering this winter and have our first mtb race together in a couple of weeks at the Howies Battle on the Beach. We're planning bikepacking trips for the summer and a trip to watch the start of the Tour in Yorkshire. I want to say a big thanks to my girlfriend for making me a very happy & lucky man as I never thought I'd get to share the thing I love with the one I love....Thanks Babe..

I got my ex gf into cycling. She could draft behind us guys, but got dropped on the longer hills. It was great because not only did she want to go fort 4 hour bike rides, but also cycling holidays!!
She eventually got the bike bug and decided she wanted a classy bike. We found her a deal on a NOS LOOK frame and took the Ultegra off her cookie cutter Al frame and put it on the look.
Even more awesome was when we "invested" in her upgrade I got one also :D I bought an old season System 6 - damn I miss that bike wish I'd never sold it.

Good Bye 2013...A Year In Pictures
 I know none of you give two hoots about my pre-bike 2013, so this is where my year-and a whole new way of life- started...and this is the (original) bike that kicked it all off, my On One Inbred (it didn't stay like this for long)! I hardly remember riding...
