My Danube Cycling Adventure

7 Aug , 2013  

As a child, whizzing along down country lanes on my bike was arguably my first taste of freedom. The feeling of independence- no adults around!- is still linked in my mind to freewheeling down hills, and although I’ve not been on a bike regularly since I was a teenager, I was more than keen to […]

The Lakes & Hadrian’s Wall Cycle Tour (Part 2)

16 May , 2013  

Cycle Day 4 – Keswick to Alston: Waking up to torrential rain and it forecast for the whole day I decided to throw in the towel. I am not normally a defeatist but the thought of several hours exposed to the elements didn’t appeal. We got the bus to Carlisle, picked up the car and […]

The Lakes & Hadrian’s Wall Cycle Tour (Part 1)

12 May , 2013  

Cycle Day 1 – Carlisle to Cockermouth: We left the bustle of Carlisle and headed West then South West from the castle, soon familiarising ourselves with the white on blue National Cycle Network signs. Following the River Caldew along quiet cycle paths we saw the first swifts and swallows of the year also many spring […]

Italian Adventure -Part 1 – Walking & Cycling in Umbria and Tuscany

30 Nov , 2010  

My much anticipated Italian adventure began as my Ryanair flight thudded down on the runway at Pisa airport (the landing was enough to make me purchase a pack of the smokeless cigarettes which are mercilessly plugged on board!).  I was met by the charming Beppe our local agent for Tuscany and Umbria, with a friendly […]

Great Glen Cycleway – Day 4

4 Nov , 2010  

Day 4 Firstly you may note that the photographic/video accompaniment for today does not follow true to the previous couple of days.  This is largely due to the sheer volume of water falling from the sky onto my head.  Indeed, not only was it monsoon season in Drumnadrochit, to further challenge me a gale force […]
