The Insane And Infrequent Ramblings Of thetribe

Entries for April, 2014

Sunshine On My Shoulders

Well, what can I say. Bev went to work and because I was up I went out on the bike, took myself a bit of food and drink to keep me going and headed for Alnmouth along the “Coast & Castles” National Cycle Network Route 1. I love this route but usually only go as […]

29 x The Pain + Obliteration

Started the day off by heading out for 20+ miles after dropping Bev at work, was pleasant but windy, got a nice pic of the bike with sunshine and daffodils. Came home and spent the day trying to make space for all the bikes that have to stay in the house because the sheds are […]

Family Affair

We took the chance this morning to go out on the bikes as it was sunny and the wind wasn’t as strong as it has been, just a nice steady ride to wake us up. Was nice to get 10.4 miles in. .

Do Or Die

Took the new bike into Ashington Community Woods to check out the trails, turns out there are a lot of hills, some almost caught me out. I ended up cycling 10 miles in total and didn’t see every bit of the trails, must investigate more, that’s for sure. .

Talon’s First Ride

Today was the day I picked up my new bike, Giant Talon 29er 2, from Breeze Bikes in Amble. I love it but it ain’t like the Vantage, it’s a tad slower :-D Got new shoes and pedals too so was clipped in for the first time ever, which was interesting and surprisingly I didn’t […]

Highway Star +

Well today I was back on my usual route, only to find no work has been done, no road closure… Bah! 2 rides today as I escorted Jade to work. .

Stairway To Heaven

Short ride along a similar route to the one I did with Bev as a lateish finish at work, then a trip to the garage to pick up the car left me 30mins before I had to get ready to head out with LoGOz to the Lionheart Radio studios. .

Seaside Ride

Just a short ride out today after spending the afternoon sorting out my new bike and accessories. A short one via Newbiggin just to make sure Bev gets used to her bike, I will make a cyclist of her yet and make 30milers a regular thing ;-) She did tackle a hill that she walked […]

None Of The Above

My usual route is out of bounds this week as part of the route is closed due to resurfacing, so I had to quickly find a different route. Started with a 7 miler today in the rain, will try and find a bigger one for the rest of the week. .


So proud of Bev today, even though she’s not been on her bike regularly she smashed through a few brick walls on her way to 33 miles with me this morning, even smashed the hills! OK I had to keep her going with tea, biscuits, ice cream and cake but we got there That ride […]
