How to cycle underneath a river

If I hadn’t seen a Sustrans post about it, I’d never have known about it, but visiting the Newcastle area now and again, I had to check it out. It’s a tunnel you see, under the River Tyne, but not your usual, cars, buses and other motorised transport affair, this was built for pedestrians and […]

Spectacular Cycling from the Club Din...

Mark and I were fortunate enough to win the prize donated by Paul Simpson for the club dinner, spectacularcycling – http://www.spectacularvilla.eu/. The prize included 3 nights bed and breakfast at Paul’s villa in Beniarrés, 2 days bike hire, transfers to/from Alicante. We decided to extend the stay by an extra night and secure two additional […]

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. The bikes arrived safely in their cardboard boxes, courtesy of Easyjet and the […]

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 […]

Derek 15th in Tour of Britain in PB

Picos de Europa cycle tour May 2016

Bikes aren’t just training tools for battering each other with. They are a fantastic mode of transport for exploring new environments.  So, after a shortish tour around Lyon and the Vercors region of France last year, Ann and I decided to make a trip to the spectacular Picos de Europa mountains in northern Spain.  A […]

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 […]

Eureka 200km

Eureka 200km

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 […]
