Tom Riley and Rob Lucas are undertaking a huge mission, cycling all the way around the world! The 20,000 mile adventure will take them through 4 continents and over 20 countries, wow.
We at Foska were very impressed by this and decided to help them along their way by supplying them with some quality gear, officially becoming the main clothing sponsor Hopefully bringing the spectators along the route a smile will spur them into helping our heroic riders! The lads are raising money for Wateraid, a quest to provide clean, running water and sanitation to some of the world’s poorest communities, a worthy cause we feel.
Visit their page or their Facebook to see how the preparations are coming along, or to donate even a bit of money, they’re trying to raise £20,000! Let’s just hope they have some comfy saddles!
Photos of the courageous (or daft, we’re not quite sure) pair coming soon.
Afternoon Foskians, last year me and dad (Foska Tony) took part in the first Great British Bike Ride, which covers the distance between Land’s End and Twickenham. This was my first ride spanning this sort of length and after cycling from Twickenham all the way down there, boy, did it not disappoint. It was hard graft but everyone had a real good time, no matter what the riding experience. Unfortunately me and Dad weren’t available to take part this year but maybe next year! Anyway, the reason I’m bringing this back up is they’re currently 3 days into this year’s ride, in the rain (oh dear), pacing from Yeovil to Winchester. Thinking of all you selfless riders! Good thing they’re all wrapped in all Foska gear, indeed.
Follow their progress and apply for next year at http://www.greatbritishbikeride.com/ we hope to see you there

Foska Tony has just appeared in the Cave (Foska HQ), discussing something he did a couple of weeks back; The World Naked Bike Ride. Now, I’m not sure who of you know this, but Foska Tony is my dad, so this did come as a bit of a shock. Story goes that he was talking to someone about hiring a bike when he innocently asked the reason for such a hire. Foska Tony thought this to be a splendid idea and proceeded to disrobe and jump on a bike for the start of the ride. All was going well until around the busy streets of Mayfair, where between the protests of car culture and frivolity, disaster struck. Foska Tony’s chain had jumped clean off his bike, much to the amusement of everyone spectating. He tried fruitlessly to hold his bike up and return the chain for a good number of minutes, which is quite a long time when you’re standing in the buff! After drawing a small crowd the chain was successfully replaced and Foska Tony cycled back off to rejoin the ride to the sound of cheers and applause from the public. I’ve never been so proud of him, although I’m not sure what will happen to Foska’s sales if naked cycling catches on!
The World Naked Bike Ride is a series of naked rides that take place in June all across the UK to protest the car culture that we have fallen into and to also to demonstrate the vulnerability of cyclists, drawing in over 1200 people. http://www.worldnakedbikeride.org/uk/ (not for the faint of heart!)

As you may or may not be aware, the Foska office is based in Central London. A two minute walk from Westminster Abbey to be more precise. So for my lunch break I thought I’d take a strole around the last minute preparations for the Royal Wedding. What did I find? Apart from A LOT of people? John. I found John!

Anais Regeon got in touch with our pals over at iPayRoadTax.com. Below is what she had to say!
“I got my shirt through the post on Saturday, it looks amazing, and I have been wearing it intensely since
I get strange looks from people on foot and drivers at the wheel, but cyclists give me a smile and a nod, it is great!
I even took my shirt to the Tate Modern, where we staged a “sleep in” to commemorate the Deepwater Horizon disaster and voice our disagreement regarding the BP sponsoring of the arts. I thought a zero emission shirt was appropriate in those circumstances.”
