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 my triathlon tours. All are welcome. I pack light, camp most nights  and stick to bike paths and quiet back roads. I also maintain a list of triathlons in Alsace, Lorraine and Franche ComtĂ©. Let me know if you ever need any help with race entries, bookings, translations or bike tour route ideas.

I'm Ross and I've been a triathlete since 1989. I now take a minimalist approach to my training and racing. Other projects include buying a canoe, becoming a qualified cycle mechanic, finishing the UKSCA accreditation, learning the guitar, continuing to work in my garden, making better food choices and improving home productivity.
