Ultimate Turbo Trainer Set Up, Gadgets, Software and Workflow

I’m quite pleased with my turbo trainer set up, the software I use with it, the ‘workflow’ I have to record everything and the gadgets that I use to make this happen. I’ve mentioned many of them here in passing, but thought I’d write a post about the whole kit and caboodle. What I use, how it...

Amazon Fire TV Stick and Amazon Prime

The Amazon Fire TV stick popped up on offer the other day and was just too good an offer to miss. The usual price Amazon Fire TV Stick at £34.99 isn’t exactly expensive, but when I noticed it as a Black Friday offer for just £24.99 I decided to take a closer look. We’ve never really looked at...

Garmin Fenix 3 Set Up

As you may know, I’m now the proud owner of a Garmin Fenix 3 watch. It took a while to get it as it was stuck at the delivery depot for weeks and the two companies that were involved in delivering it (UK Mail and Cooper Carriers) didn’t seem able to communicate with each other, so...
