For Ben Bareham, nothing beats the feeling of being on two wheels.  

Just a couple of years ago, the effects of overworking were taking their toll on his mental and physical health. He took up cycling to lose weight and improve his fitness.  

It wasn’t all plain sailing. His first 160km Fondo was a race against the broom-wagon. Suffering from cramp in both legs, his persistence paid off and he finished inside the time-cut. 

Ben stays motivated by riding with friends and loves the freedom of being able to just get on his bike and go. He’s looking forward to three main events this year, all taking place during the same two weeks!

What's in Ben's kit bag?

dhb Aeron FLT Roubaix Bib Tight

These bib tights have a very comfortable chamois, are amazing quality and feel, and they’ve kept me warm on rides with a fleece-backed material, yet aren’t too thick. Highly recommend.


dhb Classic Long Sleeve Jersey - Dash

Versatile thermal jersey that’s fleece lined yet breathable. I’ve worn it under a jacket in harsh low temp conditions or on top of a warm base layer for an extremely comfortable mild winters ride.


dhb Aeron Hybrid Softshell

Amazing quality and fit on a cycling jacket that can be worn as a winter jersey with its full fleece lining or as an outer weatherproof layer in unpredictable conditions, this is my go to piece of cycling wear this winter! I love it.


dhb Merino Long Sleeve Base Layer

Super comfy and warm. Id go as far as saying its so warm that I haven’t been on many rides cold enough yet to wear it that often.


dhb Aeron Winter Weight Merino Sock

My go to socks this winter! Extremely warm and comfortable. I pair them up with Dhb Extreme Weather Neoprene overshoes for absolutely zero cold toe problems during sub-zero commutes.


dhb Extreme Weather Neoprene Overshoe

This overshoe does it all, keeps my feet dry, warm and the fit and durability of the materials used is excellent.
