Cycling is more popular than ever, and with a variety of bikes in many niches, there are health benefits, and shorter journey times available to all.

Having owned many road bikes, mountain bikes, commuters, and everything in-between, as a keen cyclist for the last 20 years, I’ve watched with curiosity, amusement, and perhaps even disdain, at the coming of the “e-bike”.

Featuring Sustainable Sybarite: The future of golf set for...

Founded by trained marine biologist and qualified accountant Ed Sandison, OCEANTEE is on a mission to change how the industry and golfers think about plastic use and its environmental impact. The company was the first to produce golf tees made from bamboo - one of the fastest-growing and, therefore, renewable plants in the world - and has accessories and a men's and women's clothing range made entirely from sustainable fabrics. "Over 1.5 billion trees every year, and roughly half are plastic. That's a lot of plastic. Clubs like Prince's Sandwich have banned plastic tees. Royal North Devon found tees in birds' nests, especially the coloured ones; birds were feeding plastic to their young. They've found plastic tees on the beach, too. Bamboo breaks down over time and doesn't release toxins as it does."

Roberto Grilli: The mastermind lighting up Formula E

Recently appointed to manage the Formula E - Diriyah ePrix in Saudi Arabia, Roberto tells The Sybarite how he got into the motorsports and lighting industry, the changes he has had to make during the recent pandemic, and what the appointment to the Formula E race means to him.  Tell us a little bit about yourself and your background. As DZ Engineering’s General Manager, I am currently responsible for both commercial and business development in integrated solutions for race track circuits, sports venue lighting, museums and architectural lighting. Prior to this, I had pursued automation and software engineering with the vision that I, one day, will be building the first real Mecha, a Japanese giant anime robot. Shortly after joining this, I realised that I would not have been able to survive coding for that long - I would be, in fact, bored to death. When I had the opportunity to switch professions, I grabbed on to something more exciting and here I am now, with over 15 years of experience in across both motorsports and lighting industries

Featuring Arctic Open at The Akureyri Golf Club

Akureyri Golf Club in the north of the country has some of the trickiest greens to read in the world. You have to make allowances for sudden shifts in the earth’s surface because of the volcanic activity happening under your spikes. You must also be prepared to see your ball disappearing forever down a 60 million-year-old fissure. You are also advised to make sure you check your ball is your ball before playing it. It might be a piece of lava and therefore hazardous to your card, clubs and wrists. The Magnus Gudmundsson designed moorland and ancient rock outcroppings course at Jadar farm first opened in 1935 and is the second oldest golf course in Iceland after Reykjavik ( est 1934). Iceland’s third course is on Westmann Island  (Vestmannaeyjar in Icelandic), on the island of Helmaey off the southern coast.

Modern fitness, an interview with owners of E-Pulsive and...

Time-efficient, low-impact workouts that will help you improve strength and body composition in just 20 minutes. Eladio de Leon and Mario Kaspers started both EMS studio E-Pulsive, as well as alternative therapy haven Repose, alongside the expertise of Daria Ivanova to create optimal results for their clients in their beautiful location in South Kensington. The Sybarite spoke with them on how they started their business, the benefits of EMS and Repose and what the future holds for them. What are both of your backgrounds? Daria - I was brought up by a very supportive family. Most of my relatives are from a professional sporting background, which always directed me into this arena. Finally, I decided to pursue a career in this industry and began working for 6 years with E-Pulsive as an EMS trainer, gaining a lot of experience. After a while I decided to join forces and create the best wellness space in London, if not in the world. Mario has a master in Master Chemical Engineering at Imperial Colleague, then did his PT qualifications in London. Eladio has a degree in International business management, he has studied in different countries and love to explore different cultures. Naturally a connector and an entrepreneur.
