Ticking over in July

Drum roll... 438 miles! A bit down on June but still a decent amount of miles to keep the clock ticking over! And as I have completed more miles that target I am now even further ahead of target: My previous highest annual cycling total was 2,255 miles. It looks that this will be surpassed...

Forgotten June

Had a great June, probably too busy cycling to write about it!  So this will be brief - normal service to be resumed at the end of July. Still not 100% health wise. I'm having the odd bouts of dizziness and phlegm but thankfully it isn't affecting my cycling. So June... 481 miles! My best... Continue Reading →

MayAsWell

Quite happy with May. I've this last week started to feel normal again but I'm getting fatter, I know I am, I'm eating chocolate like it's going out of fashion as I've finally given up vaping. I gave up on the 18th May as my chest was getting quite bad and it seemed very silly... Continue Reading →

April… Cool

April is a mixed but kinda successful bag. The illness that's been dragging on didn't want to shift so I finally called the doctor. Turns out I've had some kind of virus that ended up as a chest infection. Anyway, a course of antibiotics a couple of weeks into April sorted me right out and... Continue Reading →

Virus-ridden March

So we started off with the best of intentions and then something a little bigger than cycling came along... COVID-19. I started off March quite well having a 56 mile week 1 total but then I got ill again. I managed to cycle through the last cold but this one knocked me for six and... Continue Reading →

Hey Driver, Please Don’t Kill Me!

Went out for a ride last night after a little break on some quiet country roads around where I live.  Usually the drivers around Kirby Fleetham are pretty good, there are always cyclists about and drivers are usually very courteous but last night they must have taken an idiot pill. First up was YL16 TZK.... Continue Reading →

So that’s 2016 done

My ride today ended as my season on the bike has done - disappointingly. I misjudged the severity of a bill on my route which took me longer than I thought meaning I was running late and had to cut the ride short then I got a flat 2 miles from home.  Due to an... Continue Reading →

Wiggins on Marr on TUEs

This morning Sir Bradley Wiggins appeared on The Andrew Marr Show to discuss the leaked TUE (Therapeutic Use Exemption) documents leaked by the hacking group Fancy Bears. Wiggins has come under increasing pressure over recent days with cycling fans and the media accusing him of legally doping before 3 Grand Tours and in particular before... Continue Reading →

Dear fellow road users…

I'm a driver and a cyclist.  I pay Vehicle Excise Duty and have done for years.  That 'Duty' isn't Road Tax before we start, that was abolished in 1937 but it was never called Road Tax. Anyway, I digress... I cycled 5 miles yesterday with my video camera turned on and saw a driver nearly... Continue Reading →
