WHY RIDE WITH US?
Between the team we ride, we fix, we sell, we coach, we compete, we travel, we cheer... you get the picture.
So we don't bugger about with bling, digital certificates or cold falafels. We would rather you had some real food nutrition, genuine on course support and dependable sorts on the team that will look after you.

We're mostly about a damn good PARCOUR
Because we ride, train and race, we know what jars riders off - so we're not about 'racing for the deluded', a free gel, a bling medal or a token digital certificate. We don't like timing chips either, it takes away the fun element in our eyes and we don't encourage you to 'race' whilst on the open road. It's about interesting routes, places you never knew existed and exploring what is on our doorstep a little deeper. Taking races such as Omloop Het Niewsblad, Paris-Roubaix, Dirty Kanza (they may of renamed it but it'll always be Dirty Kanza to us) and Gravel Bootleggers as inspiration for our parcour, fun and the community spirit that comes with the sort of riders we all tend to enjoy being around.
If you want to race properly on the roads or take part in the South West Cyclo Cross league, then we can certainly point you in the right direction. Making sure you have a British Cycling race licence, pin a number on your back and that way you help support your local grass roots racing network while partaking in a safe, controlled environment run to British Cycling guidance. You get the picture. There's actual racing and then there's riding quite fast. Don't blur them.
We're about the sport, the terrain, the route, the surroundings, the grub, the coffee stop, the bad company you keep, the flats, the grazed elbow - but mostly we're about the laughs and larks!
So when you've ridden on FlanRou, with your fellow 'knobblie and drops' lunatics you've have something to chuckle about for many a moon, we like to think that's why so many keep coming back and the community spirit is alive and well.
