Exmouth Exodus

Tuesday, September 27th, 2005

The Exmouth Exodus is very similar to the Dunwich Dynamo, only it’s not as far to travel from the Bristol area until you actually start cycling.

Howies versus Levis

Thursday, September 22nd, 2005

Wednesday, September 21st, 2005

I’ve been very busy for the last 2 weeks working on the website for the launch of the latest and greatest Moulton: the Pashley-Moulton TSR. The website was launched on the same day that Eurobike was opened to the public, last Saturday.

My first triathlon
