Five Sticker Rides


 A Five-Sticker Ride is the name of a chapter in Mark Allen's book. If you don't have a copy you should buy one. Get a copy of Dave Scott's book while you're at it. 

I chose the name for this website as a nod of respect to the 1980s. A time when triathlons were cheap to enter, equipment was ordinary and training uncomplicated.

Here you'll find details of short triathlon tours that I'm planning. All are welcome. There's also a list of my local triathlon events in Alsace, Lorraine and Franche Comt√©.

I'm Ross and I've been a triathlete since '89. In 2015 I'm getting back into easy triathlon while attempting to learn the guitar, garden and take up sewing and canoeing. 

As I approach my mid-40s I'm focusing on making better food choices, improving home productivity, using a minimalist training regime and negotiating a career change.

I record a weekly podcast with my partner Gwen. We discuss bike touring, camping, the French triathlon scene, trail jogging, tandeming and trying to raise three active boys.
