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 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. 

I'm Ross and I've been a triathlete since 1989. Here you'll find details of my annual triathlon tour. All are welcome. I pack light, camp and stick to bike paths and quiet back roads. I blog a bit and release a weekly podcast. Don't expect much. I discuss triathlon touring, trail jogging, the French triathlon scene and other projects.
