  1. NETCO

    North East Trail Centre Organisation

      NETCO FLATNETCO -  further developing mountain biking in Scotland; this non-profit organisation aims to put Aberdeen on the map with this fast growing sport by increasing participation in mountain biking, ensuring a range of accessible trails for participants of all levels - all whilst promoting appreciation of the outdoors and boosting tourism in the local town. With a large geographical gap between trail centres in the North, this won't be a quick fix, but it'll certainly be a problem solved!  With a  3 year timeline (as of June '17) NETCO are well on their way to creating a superb, family friendly and character building trail centre - NETCO's next step is to finalise the location of this project, then begin creating some man-made trails. Until then, you can virtually explore all 23 mtb trails in Scotland from the comfort of your own couch at scottishmountainbiketrails.comThis Bing-based map app brings all 23 Scottish MTB trails to a digial 3D format for mobile and desktop devices. The app as mentioned already, features 23 trails, it also holds over 60 minutes worth of live headcam footage of every trail in Scotland!  The 3D terrain animation aslo invites users to browse trails they have never been to before and with the camera controls, they can roam the 3D terrain as the videos play to enhance the visual experience of the trails in Scotland. Video overlays also provide elevation and grading guidance.

  2. 2 Veterans, 2 Trikes and 10 grueling days

    Here's why Laura and Patrick are taking on such a challenging task: LAURALaura Ellis 1st Regiment, The Royal Horse Artillery (RHA) 19th Regiment, The Royal Artillery (The Highland Gunners)  Job Roles: Remover and Reviver Operator Artillery Logistics Command Post (CP) Signals Pipe and Drums Discharged: September 2012 I joined the British Army in 2008, and went in to the Royal Artillery as a Artillery Signaller. I was a member of B Battery, 1st RHA. This wasn’t to be my only job, as I was deployed to Afghanistan in 2009 as a Remover and Reviver 3 Operator. Later on during my career I was part of Artillery Logistics, as well as the Pipes and Drums. My first tour was from 2009 until 2010. I spent Christmas away from my two girls. I was attached to the 1st Battalion, Grenadier Guards, who were based in Forward Operating Base (FOB) Shawquat in Helmand. The FOB was integrated into an old castle within the middle of the town. In 2011 I was diagnosed with nocturnal epilepsy. This meant I could no longer do my job to the fullest. In 2015 I was diagnosed with a mental health injury which I’m still undergoing treatment for to this date. In February 2016 I was rushed in to hospital as I’d lost most of the feeling in my body from the waist down. This was due to Cauda Equina, and so underwent emergency surgery to remove the L4 and L5 discs leaving me with ongoing lower back problems. I now live in West Lothian, Scotland, with my kids, partner and my assistance dog, Scout. I’m not currently working due to my on going physical and mental health problems. My aim is to start my own dog walking business, and raise as much money for military charities as possible. Quay.   PATRICKName – Patrick Medhurst-Feeney Age – 27 Lives in – Plymouth Served In – British Army, 8 years Regiment – Royal Army Veterinary Corp (RAVC) Job Role(s) – Veterinary Technician, Protection Dog Handler, Vehicle Search Dog Handler Medically Discharged – March 2016 I joined the Army in 2008, aged 19, into the RAVC as a Veterinary Technician. I carried out this role most of my career, as well as completing dog handling courses, and carrying these out in an operational role in Afghanistan. I did my first tour of Afghanistan in 2011 aged 22. I had my 22nd birthday whilst I was out there. After this tour of duty, I was injured whilst on adventurous training with my squadron during our 3 month ‘stand down’ period after the tour. This led to numerous injuries through my career, and whilst on my 2nd deployment to Afghanistan in 2013 I was involved in a non-combat accident that led to me be flown back to the UK. I started an intensive treatment program that got me to where I am today. In March 2016, I was medically discharged from the Army. I have always been an animal lover and enjoy my sport. Mostly watching now rather than being involved. I now live in Plymouth with my wife and 5 dogs. I’m not currently working while I still receive treatment for my physical and mental health problems. My aim is to be a cricket coach, and promote disability sport in the community.

ABOUT TCJ

High quality digital printing technology has evolved over the years and we have the facility to utilise it to the max. So we use it unlike most others! Initially to produce our own cycle jerseys, mainly for races, enduros and just plain fun. Most of all we just wanted something different to wear on the trails that subtly whispered our likes and dislikes, our joy of the sport and desire to be creative with it.

Trouble is, we kept getting nagged for jerseys from friends and fellow riders......It didn't take much of that to realise there was a demand for these quirky and limited edition designs we were wearing, so it began to dawn on us that we should go for it. Go large. Thanks to the help and encouragement from the fine companies you see in the following pages, we finally got ourself together and brought our designs to the public at large - and created TheCycleJersey.com ...Read More
