…if riding a bike around in the mud, and cold and in the dark, appeals to you then entries are still open for Rollapaluza’s Muddy Hell cyclocross event at Herne Hill. Perversely, all that muck is an average cyclocrosser’s idea of heaven rather than hell, but whatever. Costumes encouraged but not mandatory, but chapeau to the lady who raced around last year dressed in a thoroughly impractical pumpkin outfit…

…virtual cyclists listen up! Are you one of those folks who are cash rich, but time poor (which is surely a contradiction in terms – if I was rich I’d make sure I’d have plenty of time devoted to anything other than being stuck at work. After all, I’d be able to afford it)? Have you got a virtual love of cycling and have lots of virtual mates who share your virtual passion for long slow rides in tasteful matching jerseys? Then Rapha has announced a forthcoming iPhone app (Rapha and iPhone, a match made in poseur heaven), Rendezvous, that will make organising those complex weekend warrior rides a thing of virtual epic simplicity. And, gasp!, it’ll be free too…

…yet another reason to pop over to cycling cafe Look Mum No Hands is Geoff Waugh’s forthcoming photography exhibition Selectism. Waugh, whose work has been featured in such titles as Rouleur, will be showing images that span the full gamut of cycling, from road to cyclocross (yuck) to mountain biking (yuckier). Runs from 5th to 30th November…
