But the story didn’t end there….#teamGaz

And this time It didn’t include any cycling or exercise whatsoever…..

I became part of the 95 % of..

25 08 2020

….. Former morbidly obese people who lost weight not having surgery that then went onto regain weight.

AND BOY did I regain it…. Did I givr or did I fight back?

Over the last few years I’ve had some horrendous battles that would have destroyed a lot of people.

I felt like giving up, but over the next few weeks I’ll bring you all upto speed with EVERYTHING that’s been going (hint absolutely none of it is cycling or fitness related sadly, but I think you’ll enjoy this next chapter.)


It’s been too long. 

25 07 2017

Hey yall. 
As you know I’ve been struck down with multiple sever disabilities and have been off the bike and using a wheelchair for 3 years. 
A couple or months I decided that the weight I’d had gained needed to go. 
I can’t exercise or cycle like I used to, so I set out a VIGOROUSLY healthy eating plan, not a diet  but a lifestyle change. 

I’ve since lost over 3 stone / 36lbs by simply making a healthy choice. 

I wanted you all to know that despite the horrendous time I’ve had, there’s always hope, I won’t ever become to cyclist nor inspiration  I once was, but I hope this post has helped those who still come here in thire thousands to read my story. 

This is another chapter, the book is never finished, who knows what the next chapter will bring. 



One Year one, we’d like to share our memories with you.

18 07 2015

After this post I have decided to post, episodically, my demise from the highs of award winning cyclist, to wheelchair bound  none cyclist.

There are many reasons behind it.

It’ll be one of many highs and lows….but it’ll be open and honest and hopefully inspiring.

For now, enjoy our moment with us, its taken us MANY MANY Years to get here but WE DID IT !

It’s Been A While.

7 07 2015

A new dawn is coming.

A new honesty

A new direction

A new set of goals

A new life


This is just  a prelude to anyone who is still here to say, a proper blog post is coming and coming soon. !


My review of Wicked monkey cycle wear

25 12 2014

The easiest way of reviewing the clothing offered by wicked monkey cycle wear  would be to post up the photos I have of me cycling with the jerseys from them on.

Sadly, the photos are from before I retired from cycling some 12 months ago &  are currently held on my Samsung Galaxy s5,however, sadly this phone is one I’ve not seen since the summer, I’m hoping I’ll have it back shortly &  I’ll duly add photos then.

Until such a time all I can say for anyone who is taller or rounder than your average emaciated cyclist is to use wicked monkey


I’m asked almost daily where the larger cyclist should shop.
There is nowhere better, I’ve used aerotech from the states and while a nice fit, they don’t come close on style or comfort


You’ll get amazing advice and service from Iain &  Kate &  of course a great deal of comfort when cycling

So if today you’ve got a bike because in the new year your going to lose weight and need to know where to shop, well now you know

Tell them Gaz sent you



Its over.

30 08 2014

As many of you know ,I have a few disabilities


Ankylosing spondylitis

Spinal stenosis

Along with other issues such as

Slipped disks



I know people look to me to be inspired,however , its time I admit what I’ve known for a long time

I’m broken, fundamentally broken

I can’t cycle ,walking is nigh on impossible over a couple of steps and I’m using mobility aids

I can’t stand for pain,sitting hurts and I need help tobdo basic everyday tasks

See obesity didn’t kill me ,but like a scene from the movie final destination, it caught up with me in the end .

Its been a blast but I need time out to see if there’s anyway I can come back from where I am again

This time its unlikely , but never bet against Gas, you never know!!!

For now the cycling shoes are hung up ,the bikes silent and the kit smelling fresh ,I loved my time as a cyclist and as an inspiration,but for now,its someone else’s turn to have a go.

Live strong


The Wedding Of Mr & Mrs Rogers-Brennan – Photos By Howard Wilkinson

28 07 2014

We decided not to sell the photo’s of our weding to “OK” or “Hello” for £1 Million and instead share them with you guys, our loyal readers for free :0)

Tracy Brennan and I have known each other since we were children, and while we have been in contact for a number of years, it felt like events of the times were such that, we’d only ever be able to be very good friends.

However, we both belived in fairytails and makebelieve and we NEVER EVER gave up hope.

We continued to fight and forge ahead with we wanted and then like magic, things fell into place, it was all our hard work and determination to be happy that lead us to this.

and so a couple of weeks ago, Tracy and I became Man and Wife.

You might think, happy ending to a long and drawn out story- but the story isnt over, were on the last chapter but please trust me when I say, there is a LOT more from us,sadly though,for now, thats all we can say…..So sit back and enjoy the wedding photos.

There is a lack of guest photos, some photos are best kept private.
