Went out for a great bike ride along the Ridgeway from Compton to Letcombe Bassett yesterday, sky was clear and it wasn’t too wet but the round trip to home made it 33 miles! I stopped a couple of times en route as I had the SLR camera (good excuse to stop!) and took some […]
Some Recent Tech Discoveries I thought I’d share: The Good: Windows 7 RC – writing the blog post from it – excellent OS (and that says a lot coming from me!) Ubuntu 9.04 -What can I say – wow – is the OS market hotting up or what? Right when they said the Browser will […]
Have been very lucky to get in some great mountain bike riding over the last few weeks. Couple of really good rides (albeit challenging and tiring ones!) in the Peaks including riding down Jacobs Ladder (which I was really pleased I managed to ride without coming off in a massive and very painful way!!). Photos […]
Finally got round to adding some recent photos to my photo galleries: http://photos.cronky.net/gallery/v/mtb/flanstag/?g2_page=4 Here’s a nice photo from the trip: DVD is done now too for those who’ve been waiting for it.

There’s loads of possible variation in this route including more of the ridgeway for example… View Larger Map I’ve […]
Photos from our recent holiday to Tuscany Italy (click) More details to follow when we can find time to write up our notes.
Amazing weekend up in the Welsh Mountains. Pictures are here and some videos to follow…
…plotted on Google. Really mixed terrain and views. Decided to extend a loop round the village out to Greenham Common (ex USAF base) which is now a Nature reserve/ex runway play area. Only annoying thing about google maps is that they don’t have RoW marked on them (just roads). Hopefully this will change soon (although […]
Here is a route I went on today on my Mountain Bike, thought I’d share it as its a good one. Helps explain the mysterious red “Works Unit” sign from the M4! Also gave me a chance to try out Google Maps plotting tools. Some Photos: Bike by a Stream Nice View – although there […]
So I’ve finally worked out the cycle route to work, originally I wanted to find a road bike route as it would be quicker but I couldn’t find one that completely avoided a major A road (dual carriageway). So now I’ve actually found a more direct (as the crow flies) route that takes in mostly […]
