December in Photos

TweetTwo months behind…. ~ I’m not the biggest fan of December. It’s dark. It often involves forced interactions with people I’d rather not. It’s usually too busy at work to get anything else done. I didn’t shoot much during the month, only really taking the camera out when I wanted to take photos at an event, or during an ocassion.… Read more →

October in Photos

TweetOn time this month. Or at least somewhat. Three years married now, a new addition makes our traditional weekend of running and wandering in the mountains a bit different. But still, off to the Lake District we went, camping of sorts, introducing the new generation to some weather. It still stuns me every-time I come to the Lakes just how… Read more →

Scotland – Second Time & Jura Fell Race.

TweetA 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 – http://www.gregorymay.ie/?p=3853 Suffice to… Read more →

Tour Divide Commute in film.

TweetI 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 →

2016 Wrap.

TweetOdd 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 →

December ABV Running – Day 1

TweetIt 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.

Tweet 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… Read more →

Tour Divide Print Words

TweetFirst 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 →
