Short Walk To Nowhere

Today was supposed to be the first of mine and Bev’s ‘Cake Stop’ rides, however, last night we were out at a Roller Disco 40th Birthday Party and Bev lost a fight with the skates and the floor. So we did what we had to do together through the day and I sneaked in a […]

If These Old Bones Could Talk

Just a quick 10miler or so after work today, little faster this time, fitness coming back slowly…    

On The Road Again

Well, I was off work today so decided to go out, it was a bit chilly and frosty so I decided to do 16-20 miles depending on my route. Found after 10miles or so that my winter gear was working admirably so I decided to extend, I visited my Mam and extended yet again and […]

4 Miles & A Pint

Got out today when the wind dropped to blowy rather than just a gale, Bev finally got out for a full ride on her new bike, we just did a short ride round the local lake, as there’s a nice stop for refreshments at the far end. Maybe we should have had a hot drink […]

January Cycling Update

Got back on the bike this month, preparing myself for a good year of cycling. Definitely want to hit a Century ride this year, already have a route and potential date mapped out, watch this space. I’ve already made a good start to the year by completing 100 miles in January for the first time […]

Dirty Wednesday

A blast before work, took the MTB today and did a circuit of Ashington. Beat my previous KOM time by 4 seconds and progressed up the top 10 leaderboard of other segments despite actually stopping twice due to dogs on the route, one of which wouldn’t stop following me till I’d stopped and he ran […]


Quick blast before work, went out and went for it but the wind had other ideas, the uphill bit between Cresswell and Ellington was pretty crap to be honest. The ride is named Passenger as that’s the song that came on as I was heading uphill, fighting the wind and being overtaken by a bus […]


A nice steady Sunday blast, not pushing it just enjoying the morning, although I did do my fastest overall time for this loop. After this headed off to Ingram Valley with Bev for a picnic, was a canny Sunday overall :-) .

The Big Muddy

A quick blast before work saw me get a KOM and 2 overall top 10’s, wow, the 2 day break I gave my legs seems to have kicked them into action :-) That’s May off to a start, just got to keep it up now, not aiming for every day though, just taking each day […]

April Review

Well that was a canny month, got way more miles in than I expected, didn’t quite make it to 500 but as I hadn’t planned on that from the outset I’m not too disappointed, original plan was for 300, averaging 10 per day as that’s my short after work route. I had some good rides […]
