Scotland – Second Time & Jura Fell Race.

A while coming as I’ve been slacking with writing. After last years excellent trip, we took the opportunity to have our first real family holiday this year in Scotland. Arran first, Islay, Jura, Mainland, Glenco, Skye, then the Lakes. We covered about 1,700km. It made sense to combine it with a trip the the Jura Fell Race – Suffice to… Read more →

July in Photos

A busy unpredictable month. A lot less photos taken than normal. Tiny human becoming more of a human. An extended trip to Ireland. Some local exploring down lanes I didn’t know. Training with CVSRT. Training the tiny human to be an outdoor human. A wedding. Another trip to Ireland to spend time on a mountain. Read more →

What’s the fuss about? Then we went and reccied part of the route last September. It suddenly became quite obvious that this was not… Read more →

April Photos

Something has been lurking in my brain for a while. Not riding bikes, but running. Camera annoyingly heavy for running. Maybe I should just photograph other things? Not my athletic life. Hmm, wonder what would happen if I did that more often? Would I become “better” at taking photos? Is there better? Either way, images from April that please me. Read more →

Tour Divide Commute in film.

I spent most of my Tour Divide training rides along the canal between where I live and Manchester. 2 hours. 43 Kilometers. Each way, twice a day, up and over a climb gaining me 400m each direction. With work, family, and friends, it was the easiest way to combine training and life with too much of an impact. From February… Read more →
