Morocco Part 3: The Anti-Atlas (Zagora to Agadir 21/03/22-31/03/22)

I had a full day off in Zagora to let my body recover from the crash. The only problem was that my body wasn’t really recovering. My road rash wasn’t worrying me too much (even if getting changed for bed was uncomfortable), but my knee was really buggered from the crash.  I was also quite … More Morocco Part 3: The Anti-Atlas (Zagora to Agadir 21/03/22-31/03/22)

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)
