One for all you bike loving chefs out there, the Descent of Puerto de Alisas, stage 17 La Vuelta Espana

This is my goPro highlights of the Descent of the final first category climb of Puerto de Alisas before the super steep los Machucos on the 17th stage of the 2017 Vuelta España, the road surface was good and it was quiet for traffic, an excellent descent with speeds in the high 90KPH. bob Smith one of our two mechanics was out with us for the first couple of hours and can be seen towards the end of the video...

About me

‘The Best Food Comes From The Heart..'

I am a life long cook and a Former National Chef of the Year a title I won back in 2013.
I have a love of cycling wanting to be a Pro in my younger years, I rode 3 national championships but a life at the stove beckoned.

This is my Channel a snapshot of what I am all about, Family, Cycling and Food.
In 2015 I rode the Tour de France; one day before the pros and in 2017 all three Grand Tours- Giro d’italia, Le Tour de France & La Vuelta. Not just content with the physical challenge for Charity CureLeukaemia; I wrote a charity cook book that documented the journey called "Back in the Saddle" with recipes inspired by the geography and terroir of each region and stage.
