Content Director Rob's first proper road bikes were a Raleigh Sprint in the early 1980s and then a Trek 1000 in 1999. Rob – who spent 12 years as editor of our very own Cycling Plus magazine – is a proud MAMIL who commutes by bike and rides sportives slowly. He's completed a number of big rides including the 2018 Etape du Tour, dropped out of quite a few more and refuses to shave his legs unless for money. He's currently riding a Ribble Endurance SL and a CHPT3 Brompton. At 185cm and 80kgs he can't get shorter but he could get leaner.
