fort william trials
Fort William is perhaps better known for it's downhill events but has always had a Trials presence. The event showcases the skill and technique of bikers who can navigate over rocks, logs, pipes, barrels and vehicles in impressive style.

Local lad and British Championship trials rider, Owen Gawthorpe, dropped us a line after the event to share a few photos from his recent win at the Fort William UCI World Cup.

He's currently in the process of entering the World Championship series in the Czech Republic and Spain this summer and will be riding in a great bundle of howies merino to keep him focused on the bike, not sweating the competition.

Good luck this summer. Keep following that front wheel.

‘Traffic Dodger’ is our T-shirt of the Month, celebrating the power of the pedal.

There’s no better way to beat those commuter blues than to make the morning hike by bike.

Take to the urban slalom.
Navigate the traffic maze.
Ride the city to the limits.

You don’t do static.
You’re poetry in motion.

The mini welsh adventure

It's a slight change from the wintery pictures you have been seeing of late but here is my April blog.

Me and beatrice set off on an adventure to explore some of wales on my parent's bikes with plenty of luggage including camping gear, in total nearly 20kg on each bike.

We saw some amazing views, riding from Haverfordwest all along the coast line until Cardigan and stopped there for 3 days on the howies photoshoot then continued on....

Tenby has the best food spots.

Aberaeron has the best fresh fish.

Aberystwyth the most students in drag on friday night.

Elan valley, just lots of ruins and never-ending windy hills on which the time passes faster by wheeleing the bike, looking at rivers and playing games like guessing the number of ruins or trying not to say 'nice' for the duration of the day.

The road before elan valley has the most random post box next to some woods in the middle of nowhere.

Devils bridge, some lovely waterfalls.

Rhaeder has the best quiche lunch!

And home is home :)

We had pretty sore legs and some well tested merino from howies at the end of the last day after riding 50miles on mountainbikes and luggage over the elan valley hills and back home but it was well worth it.

Here are just a few of the pictures we took. hope you enjoy them

For those who missed it last week, this month’s T-shirt of the Month is called ‘All About The Bike’.

To mark the release of his book 'It's All About the Bike' in paperback, author and bikenut Robert Penn has teamed up with howies to produce this one-off  t-shirt print.

Designed by howies, it celebrates the joy and freedom of the bicycle... In other words:

It's all about the bike.

And we also have the book available to buy online here:

The other weekend, we ran a little photo comp called 'Wish You Were There'

We were really happy to see so many of you getting involved and posting photos of what you got up to on the weekend.

It's been pretty hard to pick out just 30 winners - but as promised below are the lucky 30 shots which have won a free t-shirt each. They feature fun, bikes, surf, hills, family, food, sun, adventure, relaxation & freedom.

Huge thanks to everyone who took part - We're hoping to do more stuff like this before too long.

Oh, and you can always check out loads of other great entries on our facebook wall here if you're looking for a little inspiration for your next weekend of adventure.
