I’ve been very lucky in securing a place on Deloitte RAB (Ride Across Britain) which is a 9 day, 969 mile cycling challenge from Lands end to John o’groats! As this means I now have a charity fundraising target of £900 I thought I’d better make a start on my […]
So the 2016 charity cycling challenge is Oxford to Edinburgh – 400 miles over 3 days! Originally we (Anthony and I) were going to attempt to do it over 2 but we looked at the route and decided that was too crazy – doing it over 3 days will still be very hard – day 3 […]
Really enjoyed riding around Garda earlier in the month. Mata Cycles near Salo are very friendly and helpful and I rented one of their bikes for 3 days.
Here is my .gpx file from last years RideLondon 100 in case anyone wants the route for their Garmin. Can’t guarantee it will be the same as this year but it looks like it will be. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/55541537/RL2013.gpx Looking forward to this years event, although the weather forecast looks somewhat interesting at the moment!

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 […]
