SHOCKINGLY GOOD. SERIOUSLY FUN.
Specialized UK think, talk, live and breathe bikes. You just have to visit their website at specialized.com/gb/gb/ to be excited about their products. However, it is the people behind the brand that makes us like Specialized so much.
From the outset, Specialized UK have been incredibly supportive with The Great British Adventure Challenge, and they have gone out of their way to help provide us with the Diverge Elite DSW bike (a beautiful bike to look at and such a comfortable bike to ride on and off road for the excessively long rides), bike accessories, biometric bike fit, training advice, mechanical support and general motivation for us.
Specialized Uk, particularly Blake Coxon who has been instrumental as a support and advisor, have been invaluable to this challenge and we are not sure how we would have got this far to date without them.
Do check out their website, and even if you do not buy anything, it’s a pleasure just to scroll through and look at their seriously fun bikes.
