The Cotswolds Corker

Monday, February 13th, 2006

Audax riding is fun. Especially on a nice day like last Saturday. Driving through Cheltenham, on the other hand, is not fun. Not if you can’t find your way, and are trying to get to the start of a ride on time.
So, in good tradition, I started half an hour late. This is the first […]

The Dartmoor Devil

Monday, October 31st, 2005

And devilish it started. It was bucketing it down. So much so that we even considered giving up on the whole stupid idea. For even without the rain cycling 60 miles across Dartmoor taking in as many of the steepest hills (2,220 metres of climbing) as possible is a arguably not for sane people. I […]

Pashley-Moulton TSR

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.

Or how stupid can city planners responsible for cycle lanes be?

Circuit of the Cotswolds - the David Ryan Challenge

Sunday, June 26th, 2005

I only heard about this 100 mile tour of the Cotswolds the Thursday before the event. A few other forum members from Another Cycling Forum were doing at as well, amongst which was LambO. He turned out to live only down the road from me, so we shared a lift.
I was determined not to make […]

The Dragon Ride

Monday, June 20th, 2005

The Dragon Ride started at 5:45 am for me, after a very short, hot and sweaty night. Saturday had been a scorcher and our bedroom had not cooled down much.
I got ready to pick up Dave, Simon and Larissa, had some muesli and a cuppa, and we set off for Bridgend at 6:45. We got […]
