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 annual triathlon tour. All are welcome. There's also a list of my local triathlon events in Alsace, Lorraine and Franche Comté. If you fancy bike touring or racing in France don't hesitate to get in touch if you need help with route planning, bookings, translation or race entries.
I'm Ross and I've been a triathlete since '89. I'm currently experimenting with a super-minimalist training regime. I also record a weekly podcast with my partner Gwen. We discuss bike touring, camping, the French triathlon scene, quick racing trips to the UK, tandeming, trail jogging, canoeing, food, beer and raising three active boys.
