Marco Merati

IT and grimpeur

A technology lover, but his big passion is the two wheels.
 He started many years ago with a “shitty”, “lovely” first mountain bike going in the woodlands near home. Devotion growed up and he became a downhiller and enduro rider but the passion for climbing and suffering was too big so he started his relationship with a road bike.
 This was definitely the beginning of the end!
 He’s now completely smitten by training, climbing and the beauty of our amazing mountains. 
He also loves photography, punk rock music and cakes! His credo is #rideforyourcake!. 
So ride ON and do whatever it feels you good. YO!

Nara Ishikawa

Illustrator - Cyclist cap addicted

Being from Brazil, since I arrived in the UK, in 1999 I struggled with the weather.  I always told myself that in time I would adapt and wouldn’t have to notice how cold it was so much and just get on as I did back home.  Years went by and that period from January and February still get to me.  I did figure out a few things that make a huge difference as I’ve given up on adapting.  Taking a good vitamin D supplement and facing the weather.  I’ve learnt that even on the most minging days, if I don’t allow the rain, low temperature, sleet or snow to lock me indoors I feel just fine!  In cycling people who only go out when the weather is good are called ‘fair weather cyclists”…I have nothing against riding just in sunny days but I am also proud that I am not one of those!
