Ned Clark’s Ribble

“This is my Ribble Bianco Sportive and it is my first proper road bike. Prior to this I had a converted aluminium mountain bike with drop handlebars and skinny tyres. The Ribble is fitted with a Shimano Ultegra 6800 group set that gives me firm braking and smooth gear changes. It also has Shimano RS81 carbon laminate wheels with flattened spokes. It’s a dream to ride and amazingly light due to its carbon fibre construction and I have been unable to stop myself riding it since I got it in October last year. I have been going on some mediocre (40-70 mile) day cycles with my friend but for the summer we are planning a 2 day cycle/camp in the Purbecks covering 150-160 miles over the two days. And in the Summer of next year we have planned a weeks cycle in Wales mostly in Snowdonia. This one will have approximately 70 miles each day in hilly regions so we will have to train hard until then!” – Ned Clarke
