I’m Back on the Mountain Bike!

Finally! I'm back on my favourite bike doing my favourite type of cycling. Ok, it was a fairly steady ride, but it did involve some dry dusty trails and that to me is perfection.

This year's Tour De France has been quite a good one.... Continue Reading →

Maybe a Bit Too Warm?

Now that I'm back out riding on the road bike, my wrist isn't quite strong enough yet for the trails, I'm heading out at any given opportunity.

Back On The Bike!

I cannot tell you how good it feels to be back on two wheels. Even the day after my accident I was itching to get back on the bike so you can imagine what I was like after six weeks! A couple of days ago I managed to get back out on the road bike... Continue Reading →
