DownRock Diaries - Part 2

February 11, 2021

Here at G!RO we continue to share our ways of beating the global pandemic and keeping morale high! Jamie tells us how his year sampling a new style of riding on his Downrock has been a godsend in this unprecedented year!

Wow! It’s been nearly a year since that giant box, containing my new favourite bike arrived! It was March 2020, things were starting to head south globally and the UK was a few short days away from Lockdown 1.0, but spirits were high as me and head mechanic Danny tore into the box containing all the parts, and the beautiful Downrock frame Curve had just shipped us. Days were getting longer, weather was getting warmer, riding was getting easier and ignoring the global pandemic things were looking up… Except, how can you ignore a global pandemic... That’s right, you can’t!!!

THE SIMPLICITY & SIGNIFICANCE OF THE BELGIE & BREW

February 01, 2021

With the backdrop of Covid & the global pandemic, 2020 has been a period of time like no other. Navigating from lockdown to lockdown, restrictions to restrictions, following the science or not following the science, our day to day interactions & activities as we used to know them quickly became a thing of the past. In the weeks & months that followed that initial lockdown period, it was clear that many people were trying to adjust to this new way of doing things.

Downrock Diaries - PART 1
Downrock Diaries - PART 1

June 15, 2020

The Curve Downrock honourably lives up to the press Curve give it on their website, not that I’ve seen a frill neck lizard fanging around on hot sand before, but riding this beast has given me fairly clear picture of exactly what this looks like. Look out for me on the dusty hillside of Ranmore this summer, and you’ll never need to watch a nature documentary about a frill neck lizard again.

G!RO’s Guide to Winter - Vol.1 Kitting up!
G!RO’s Guide to Winter - Vol.1 Kitting up!

October 16, 2020

Here at G!RO we love riding… It plays a huge part in our daily lives and is central to the lives of many within our community. We love to #RideWithMates, enjoy a pre-ride, mid-ride or post-ride cafe stop and use the bike as a tool to keep sane and fit. Winter, particularly UK winter, poses a threat to all this. It make’s ticking off the KM’s harder as daylight hours are slowly crushed inwards as we race towards winter solstice and gaps in the grim weather become fewer, and further between. However, here at G!RO we’re dedicated to keeping everyone riding as much as humanly possible, especially this year (2020) with all the challenges and troubles we’ve all had to face - now, more than ever we must cherish the head clearing, blood pumping goodness a bike ride can bring you. We must chase those endorphins as much as we can, and whilst winter will try and sap the goodness away; here at G!RO we’re dedicated to bring you all our favourite tips and tricks to maximise your winter riding and reap the benefits even in deepest, darkest December.
