Horseshoe Pass. The day after the nig...

Many, many years ago, on several occasions whilst out training on hot summer days, me and a few other people would stop off at the pub in Cilcain and have a pint or 2 and then see whether we could ride home without ending up in a hedge. What a laugh. Perhaps this behaviour explains […]

Loggerheads. What doesn’t kill ...

The weather forecast is a good starting point for any outdoor activities and these days they are far more accurate and reliable than they used to be however I still think it’s a great idea to just open the door, smell the air, look at the sky, feel the wind. Then make a decision about […]

Club Kit – Please Read

Bioracer increased their prices by an average of 14% for this year, due to an increase in costs and material prices. We discussed this at a committee meeting and agreed that whilst Bioracer are a great kit supplier in terms of kit quality and service, we also need as a club to offer cheaper kit; […]

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 […]

Wrinklies Christmas Dinner 2017

There was some doubt as to whether weather conditions would improve today, but early in the morning there had been a convenient thaw, with the promise of filthy roads and rain. We’re on then. Up early, I festooned my bike with Christmas lights, and used bottle holder number 1 for a nice Malbec. After leaving […]

Flaps, Mills and Etiquette

Flaps The flip-side to enjoying riding on bracing winter roads is they tend to not be as clean as summer ones. Come October time and the clocks changing there is always a ‘mudguards’ call and people, over the next couple of weeks, polish up their summer bike and put it to bed for the winter […]

Llanberis 2018

However, there are still some places available. So if you fancy the challenge of 190 miles over a weekend just send me […]
