North Mancunian Misery.

North Mancunian Misery.

It’s been a while since I’ve written an off-road blog shamefully, particularly when viewed against the journalistic volume and quality of the road oriented contributors here abouts. I’ll make an excuse that our mountain bike jaunts are best illustrated with shots of a train of colourful riders swooping down dusty trails into dramatic vistas, but […]

A plea for flaps

Saturday training ride 28th January 2017 – a short report This morning was ‘warmer’ than it has been, by my reckoning it was 5 degrees when i set off. Of course with the balmy conditions we get rain so that’s nice, something to cool you off. The ride out to Hatchmere was in to a […]

Decisions, decisions

One of the joys of parenthood is the continual stream of children’s birthday parties there are to attend. The pleasures of standing around for 2 hours in some godforsaken hole with a load of other delighted clockwatching parents cannot be overstated. Today I was lucky enough to have a party at 12.00. So it was […]
