Impending Awkward Moment

Driving on the long smooth road on the other side of the neighbouring village I slowed considerably to follow cautiously behind a bearded man who was riding a folding bike which had an unfeasibly lengthy head tube and ridiculous looking 12″ wheels. His cadence on the pedals was swift and purposeful and he wore perched on his [...]

Thinking The Commute

Find the pedals…..Clip! This gear is too easy from where I rode up the hill to my house last time. Fresh, brisk air against my face, mind that loose sand at the bottom of the road. I can see to the right, look to the left, no cars…freewheel. I can see to the right, look [...]

Mt Lemmon – As Bitter As…

Knackered – With a capital N

Met the guys at the cafe this morning and sucked down a coffee before heading off on the bikes. It was a bright sunny start to the day, although brisk enough at first to warrant arm warmers and two layers on top. After an hour the temp had jumped from a single digit to a [...]

Keeping Sane

It was beautiful out – breezy and sunny, topped off with a perfectly blue sky through which the leaves gently tumbled from the towering trees. It cleared my head and tired my body…..though there’s still something missing…

MTB Race – Hylands Park, Chelmsford

Yesterday I competed in the final Mountain bike race of the summer series.  Even though the course was flat it threw many challenges against every pedal stroke. Sticky mud, slippery tree roots which tried to throw you off at awkward angles, leaning trees that would thump your shoulders as you ducked and swerved around them, [...]
