Last year I thought the tour was quite dull with Team Sky dominating all over. This year, for some reason I'm really looking forward to watching (even though Sky might dominate all over again). Maybe…Continue
Just can't seem to summon much interest with Wiggins leading for most of the three weeks and most of the contenders from past years not even there. Or am I just suffering sour grapes on behalf of…Continue
So the government is apparently going to make the left hand lane in Grenfell/Currie a dedicated bus lane. From the story in …Continue
The Age have been running a series of articles about cycling (presumably reflecting the interests of its readership). Last week was an article about getting into cycling in adulthood (dare I say it in middle age?). One of the comments suggested that one of the reasons people have to take up cycling in middle age is because its so hard these days to get kids into cycling.

In October I walked 178km in 8 days (part of the Camino de Santiago that crosses across northern Spain, the part we walked was mainly through Galicia).

While we were there we drove all over the country from the Peak District south including Wales, Cornwall & Devon, the home counties and Norfolk. We also visited or passed through a few middle sized cities (like Cambridge & Manchester), and stayed a few days in London. We noticed a few things that interested us (and I am not saying this was in any way a comprehensive or accurate survey –…Continue
