Why ride with Tailfin

Simply put, Tailfin products are so well thought out, designed and engineered; that appeals to me on so many levels from both a racing and product perspective. I mainly race/ride with an Aeropack setup and above all its benefits, it’s the ride quality that stand out.

Noteable Achievements

Cycling PanAmerica solo – 15,000 miles from Northern Canada to the Southern tip of Argentina

Transcontinental 3x finisher; highest placing – 2nd Position

Additional Information

Music playlist of choice
What do you carry with you on every trip?
Every trip = pump; Every trip in the UK = rain jacket
One luxury item you take on a trip
I generally just carry what I need, I’m not sure I do luxuries!
Favourite country to ride in?
Colombia, no question. Stunning scenery and incredibly friendly people. Colombia is a proper cycling country; cycling up mountains on a 50kg bicycle with truck drivers coming the other way applauding sticks in the memory.
If you could only ride one route, what would it be?
Covid postponed a solo Africa top to bottom ride, so I’ve got to say that for the moment. But really the list is long!
