In search of Peter Sagan

Inspired by the Boddington’s canal advert and 60s tv series White Horses, we decided to visit the (now triple) world champion’s home country and set off to do a small tour of Slovenia, putting off the hilly bit by starting from Venice.

Cycling in the Hebrides – a bit...

I thought I’d spend a bit of time copying and pasting, to recount my week touring in the Inner and Outer Hebrides at the start of June 2017, and the nights are still dark, so, if you’re bored, or a just interested in reading a bit of a story (I say a bit, this is […]

Le Tour 2014 – what a weekend!! (A bit of a megablog – the directors cut)

Part 1 – The Journey to the Tour I had an idea. The idea was to forget the car and cycle to the top end of Yorkshire, then spend the weekend cycling to points on the Tour circuit to watch. I wanted to camp, be self-sufficient and unsupported and take some camera gear, so opted […]

This is an annual event which starts in Cheadle heads out to “The Mills” then down to Bangor on Dee across to Astbury, near Congleton, and finally back to the start. I have ridden it a few times now and it always seems to rise to the challenge of making Audax events uncertain in their […]
