Inaugural UK Adventure Cycling Festival

For those who may not yet know, we now have an Adventure Cycling Festival – http://adventurecyclefestival.co.uk/adventure-cycle-festival-speakers/150-greg-may-riding-the-tour-divide For some reason, they’ve asked me to talk at it.  Fools.   I’ll cover my obsession, training, and trip along the Tour Divide. I’ll even talk about how I managed to go the right way. I’m also probably giving a coaching and nutrition seminar at some… Read more →

Distractions

I’ve been reading a lot more since I returned from the Divide. Books, comic books, long form opinion. Winter and an annoying injury took hold and I’ve had less time on my feet and wheels to let them recover, but more time to exercise my brain. I’ve never come to March with so little miles in my legs. It was… Read more →

#NotBelgium

A draft post that never made it out there. ~ It was supposed to be a trip to Belgium to watch the Cyclocross World Cup at Koksijde. It was supposed to be a birthday trip, a cycling holiday, some time away together. It was supposed to be a fun weekend away at the start of Winter before all hell breaks… Read more →

2016 Wrap.

Odd year. A year of two distinct halves. Part 1: January through June we’re dominated by the one thing, the Tour Divide. Nothing else mattered. Work, nope. Friends, nope. Family, nope. Home…well yes, the only thing that mattered except training was homelife and future plans. Oddly, this near sole focus had little impact on the rest of my “normal” outside… Read more →

Best Photos of 2016

I took quite a few photos this year. Some good, some bad. From them I’ve had an enjoyable (??) time trying to chose my favourite photo from each month. I failed. Too many stories, moments, actions associated to too many photos to cut down to 12. So I chose 24. One set of twelve for exercise; cycling and running mostly,… Read more →

December ABV Running – Day 1

It started two years ago. An antithesis to years that had passed when I’d managed to drink every day for the month of December and felt proud of it. Things had been changing, slowly. Life was getting more positive for the first time in months, I’d shifted myself away from old habits. The WEMBO worlds had come and gone, a third place… Read more →

Running Wild.

Those that know me know that I don’t just ride bikes. Of late, I’ve not been riding bikes much. Something to do with having ridden enough for one year, also moving house and not knowing where most of my kit is at the moment. Running has been as much of a part of my life as riding bikes, I’ve never… Read more →

Tour Divide Print Words

First set of words in print from the Tour Divide this year: http://grit.cx/magarchive/issue-009 – small paywall for digital at £1.50 a month, or £6 for the print issue. I’ve been working with the folks over at Grit.cx since its inception, what feels like many moons ago. I’ve always contributed from a cross perspective, and quite often just ranting about my own ideas… Read more →
