Kent (vlogging with idle chatter)

Having a meeting in Chatham, Kent today, I decided to ride via the country lanes. Which is a 40 mile (64km) ride avoiding motorways.  It made for great riding, the weather was fabulous and I got lost various times but all in all made for a great day on the[…]

Somewhere sooth of Oxford

So after a very slow day in which I didn’t leave home until 5 pm, I slowly made my way toward Reading, where I found myself a Decathlon and found my much sought after low camp chair….which believe it or not has been something I’d been hoping to find  since[…]

A very wet Snowdonia

Well, what a day it has been! Last night’s campsite turned out sour, the road passing the campsite wad in constant use all night by trucks and the neighbouring helicopter airfield was doing night ops most of the night. Ooh well! This morning, I set off with Oxford in mind[…]

the Peak District

Kendal

Yesterday saw a fantastic improvement on the journey! The cosy bunkhouse saw a slow start to the day which gave me plenty of time to study the map, noticing that Stockport was a destination on the map, remembering that my uni friend Georgie lived there, I sent out a text[…]

Horizons Unlimited Boycott

Horizons Unlimited After various years of being a Horizons Unlimited enthusiast, I felt it was time to defer to something a little less main-stream.  Granted the Horizons Unlimited events are usually good fun with plenty of things to see, people to talk to and usually great energy, despite the Ewan[…]
