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 also release a podcast every Wednesday. Don't expect much. I talk about triathlon touring, qualifying for Rotterdam and the French triathlon scene.
