Cycling used to be a simple sport but, over the last few decades, bike riding has become more and more complex. These days, you can’t head out the door without calibrating your power meter, downloading your route onto your GPS head unit, and checking your intervals for the day from your fully qualified coach. In this video, Conor looks back to simpler times when bike riding was just about turning pedals and getting lost – all whilst keeping it in the big ring.
