Under construction: a brand-new look for Eat Sleep Cycle

It was a key moment in the Eat Sleep Cycle journey when our good friend and web designer Hollie told us that we needed to re-brand. It hurt a little bit knowing that our trusty logo (a collection of triangles and circles mushed together on Microsoft Word to make a mountain and some bicycles) just…

“How you doing on the coffee? Dumbest idea ever”

“How are you doing on the coffee front? “I really hope you have failed! Dumbest idea ever!” – Anonymous client, November 14th, 2017 Today, for some reason, I started to think that maybe it´s time to give an update on how my pledge to give up coffee for three months from November 1st was going….

Eat Sleep Cycle’s 1 year Anniversary

So much has happened in the first year of Eat Sleep Cycle that for the first time in my life looking back actually slows time down. “Were we really painting the walls of our first shop the night before it opened just one year ago?!” I have never enjoyed reminiscing so much! Yesterday around 60…

Girona in ‘winter’ and the season of base miles

I absolutely love this time of year in Girona; the tourists have moved on, the light at sunset is magical and the markets are exploding with colour and flavour.  We are still riding with our arms and legs out and some of the Eat Sleep Cycle team are actually improving their tan lines! But then…

North Spain will surprise you

I must admit I did not know what to expect from our recent reccy to North Spain. I’d heard that it rains so much that riders race with an aluminium front wheel whilst having a carbon rear one, so I knew it would be green. I was in for a very pleasant surprise. Louise and…

BREAKING: I am giving up coffee for three months

By Brian Canty I haven´t done a blog in a while and Lee´s mutterings and monologues are in danger of overwhelming the Eat Sleep Cycle website, so it´s my turn. I started today with the notion of writing one so I opened up a blank document…but it stayed blank, the cursor blinking at me. So…

Flu monologues

I’m on Chapter 5 of a week long dose of flu. Here is how it progressed. Chapter 1: Sore throat and slight dizziness Chapter 2: Blocked nose, headache, EVERYTHING aches especially the legs & back Chapter 3: KO. Temperature and disability to do anything useful at all Chapter 4: Cough and really bad mood (it’s…

Girona’s perfect season

I’m in the perfect frame of mind to write this blog. I’ve just spent the day at the beach in a small place just outside of Begur called Taimaru. It’s a 50 minute drive from Girona. It was the most perfect day I have ever spent at the beach. The sun was warm but not…

The Eat Sleep Cycle Roller coaster doesn’t have an off-season

It’s 2:30 am in Girona and my mood is electric. I’m chewing on some cloves to bring down my swollen wisdom tooth which is normally the first sign of burn-out for me. I feel like I’m on a really fun, yet slightly uncontrollable roller-coaster and I’m holding on tight… The recent political events in Catalunya…

Positivity, negativity and the big bad (or good) wolves

We’d a rough day today in the Dolomites; single digits and rain…all day long. It’s hard to get going on a day like that, not when Accuweather tells you there’s a 100% chance of rain, it’s not likely to get any better and morale is low. But no matter how bad it got – and…
