Nick Mayer

38 Jahre

Der Bike-Explorer

Mit Mitte zwanzig zog der Brite wegen eines Jobs nach New York – beneidenswert. Weniger hingegen, dass er sich von der US-amerikanischen Esskultur anstecken ließ und viele Pizzastücke später an sattem Übergewicht litt. Unzufrieden mit dem „fetten Nick“ kaufte er sich ein Rennrad und begann New York „by bike“ zu erobern. Die Pfunde purzelten und er entdeckte – wieder zurück auf der Insel – seine Liebe zur Langstrecke. 2018 unternahm er mit einem Freund den Trip London-Kopenhagen und im Winter hat er mit einigen Audax-200-Kilometer-Fahrten an seiner Form gefeilt. Sein größter Erfolg bislang: Der 38-Jährige hat Raphas Manchester-London-Fahrt absolviert – in einem „Rutsch“ ging es über 220 Meilen!

  • I’m still on cloud nine from this past weekend. I think this was one of my favourite weekends I have spent cycling. We had perfect weather, spectacular views, some VERY challenging climbs and an awesome @alpecincycling team that worked hard for each other. 
A special shoutout to all the supporters! There were crowds of people on hills cheering us all on, ringing cowbells, locals shouted encouragement as we passed through villages, even car drivers beeped, cheered and waved in support. It was so overwhelming. 📸 @stevefleming1

  • The Fred Whitton Challenge is completed! All 114 miles, 3900m of climbing and all the Lake Districts hardest passes. 
No camera wizardry was involved with this photo, the road really was that steep. I believe the road at this hairpin was a disgusting 30% incline. 
Again, massive thanks to @alpecincycling for giving me this amazing opportunity. To all the German family that flew in especially for the weekend and provided us with world class support 🙏🏻 and to the UK squad - thank you for memories I will always cherish! 
All credit to @stevefleming1 for capturing this ridiculous climb

  • Throw back Thursday to probably one of my most favourite ever days on a bike (and there’s been a lot). I was cruising along quiet roads in a beautiful part of Italy with a group of 6 people that included former world champion @mauriziofondriest and current Katusha Alpecin Pro @alexdowsett - both absolutely top blokes. This pic was taken by the awesome @henningangerer who spent the day hanging out the back of a car capturing these priceless moments.  #tbt #alpecincycling #alpecin #cycling #cyclinglove #cyclinglife #canyon #wahooligan #cyclingpassion #cyclist #escapethecake #strava #stravaphoto #cyclingphotos #cyclingpics #instacycling #cyclingimages #cyclingshots #roadbike #roadcycling #outsideisfree #fromwhereiride #10000kmcc #lovecycling
  • Arrivederci Italy! My first ever training camp done and my first ever mountain pass completed. I thoroughly enjoyed all 575 km cycled, 24,092 ft climbed and 22 hours and 50 minutes spent in the saddle! 
A massive thanks to the @alpecincycling team. It has been a tremendously difficult week for all involved, in particular our German family. They have gone above and beyond in looking after us, whilst handling everything with dignity and respect. 
Perhaps weeks like this, in some kind of way, bring us closer together as a team. 📸 @marielouise_triathlon

  • Five days to go until my first ever cycle training camp. I’m so fortunate to be flying to Italy for a whole week of training with the rest of the @alpecincycling team. Beyond excited. Big thanks to @cyclingplus and @alpecincycling for this opportunity.

  • Oh I do like to be beside the seaside. 
There seems to have been a lot of stuff in the press, as well as on here this week about helmets and a shockingly bad road safety campaign in Germany with the slogan “Looks like $h*t but saves my life” 
I happen to think my @abus_cycling helmet looks awesome and, when  paired with my @oakley Sunglasses I look cool as fcuk...Well...that’s what my mum tells me. Oh and save my life.

  • Finally. Life has been pretty hectic since I got back from Bielefeld with this absolute weapon. But this week I’ve managed to take the new bike out and put it through its paces. First impressions - Not only does it look amazing but it is so smooth to ride. It’s the lightest bike I’ve ever owned so looking forward to taking on a few big hills soon. Massive thanks to @canyon and @alpecincycling for such a generous gift. #teamalpecin #alpecincycling #wahooligan #zippspeed #escapethecake #cyclinglove #cyclinglife #cyclingpassion #cyclist #stravaphoto #cycling #cyclingimages #cyclingshots #cyclingpics #cyclingphotos #roadbike #roadcycling #outsideisfree #strava #instacycling #cyclingpassion #fromwhereiride
  • Back up North for the weekend. Rides with old school friends are 👌🏻#stravaphoto #cyclinglove #cyclinglife #cycling #cyclingimages #cyclingshots #cyclingpics #cyclingphotos #cyclist #roadbike #roadcycling #roadslikethese #outsideisfree #strava #instacycling #cyclingpassion #fromwhereiride #lanesnotlaps #lightbro
  • ***Exciting News*** So. I have some pretty big news to share with you all. I won a competition! Back in January I entered a competition in @cyclingplus magazine to win a place with @alpecincycling for 2019. And a few weeks ago received an email confirming that I was one of the lucky 12 cyclists (from Austria, Germany, England, America, Netherlands & Italy) that had secured a place. 
Now I would like to believe that I was selected purely on my cycling prowess. But that would be a blatant lie. Perhaps they just chose someone that is follicly challenged?  Tomorrow I fly to Germany to meet the rest of the team, my coach, do some fitness tests, receive a shed load of team kit & new bike, as well as finding out more about what is in store for the rest of the season. 
I am so excited. At nearly 40 years of age this is the closest I am ever going to get to that Pro Cyclist lifestyle. Brace yourselves for plenty of updates and a whole load of bergundy on my feed.
