The Transcontinental: A Beginners’ Guide to Ultra-Distance Racing (25/08/2019)

I first heard about the Transcontinental Race in March, 2015. I was a couple of months into my first ever long bike ride and was staying in the Czech Republic while crossing Europe. That ride would end up being a three year cycle around the world, but I had no idea things would escalate to … More The Transcontinental: A Beginners’ Guide to Ultra-Distance Racing (25/08/2019)

Lake District: An Off-Road Lakeland Loop (16/11/18-19/11/18)

Scotland inspired me to try and explore some more of the UK off-road, so I collected a list of mountain bike routes that had enough mileage for a long-weekend this summer.

The border crossing between Scotland and England might just win the award for least dramatic of my entire trip, with just a pathetic little sign outside a pub to welcome me and my bike into England. There might not have been any party poppers at the border but that didn’t mean it wasn’t exciting for … More England: The Finish Line (Carlisle to London 04/12/17-17/12/17)

Scotland Part 2: Stranded on Skye (Kinlochewe to Carlisle 24/11/17-04/12/17)

I am getting a bit bored of the ice and snow. I did not expect Britain to be quite so slippery in November… Still, all the ice doesn’t doesn’t half make everything look gorgeous. Scotland is beautiful anyway but with the extra sprinkle of white it is simply magical to cycle. The coastal areas were … More Scotland Part 2: Stranded on Skye (Kinlochewe to Carlisle 24/11/17-04/12/17)
