Morocco Part 1: The Rif Mountains (Tangier to Ifrane 05/03/22-12/03/22)

The flight from Malaga to Tangier was the shortest I have ever been on. I’d literally loaded up an episode to watch on my phone after take-off, before noticing city lights out the window as we started our descent. I honestly thought something had gone wrong, and that we’d had to return to Spain for … More Morocco Part 1: The Rif Mountains (Tangier to Ifrane 05/03/22-12/03/22)

Italy & France: The Torino-Nice Rally (05/09/21-12/09/21)

I applied to ride the Torino-Nice Rally way back in early 2020. I’d heard many great things about the route, and along with a few friends I entered to ride. Like many things, the 2020 edition (due to take place in summer) was postponed until the following spring. That was subsequently delayed, until things looked … More Italy & France: The Torino-Nice Rally (05/09/21-12/09/21)

King Alfred’s Way: British touring in COVID times (02/04/21-05/04/21 & 31/05/21-01/06/21)

Well, it’s only taken me half a year to get this up. By the time I wrote most of this, I was doing my third 10 day isolation in 10 months. Don’t feel too sorry for me – two of those were post-travelling abroad having gone to see family in Denmark, still… that’s more than … More King Alfred’s Way: British touring in COVID times (02/04/21-05/04/21 & 31/05/21-01/06/21)

The Smoke Ring: A Bikepacking Circle around London (03/07/20-05/07/20)

By the time I write this, in late 2020, the brief respite we had from COVID-19 in the summer months seems a distant memory. Sometime in July, I hopped on my bike to tackle a bikepacking route that I’ve had on my ‘to ride’ list for a couple of years. I’m not sure where I … More The Smoke Ring: A Bikepacking Circle around London (03/07/20-05/07/20)

South England Mega-Grav: London to The Coast and Back (05/06/20-07/06/20)

It’s been quite a while since I last posted here! It seems I managed to have an entirely blog-free 2020. Since I wrapped up my experience at last year’s Transcontinental Race, my life has been more-or-less the same throughout the year. The same probably can’t be said for the rest of the world… I didn’t … More South England Mega-Grav: London to The Coast and Back (05/06/20-07/06/20)
