  • Malham with Mike
    on Aug 2, 2016 in pootles strava
    Wonderful day out on the bike with a friend from “down there south”, who were trying his best to get lost up north. Gratefully he didn’t, and we meet up at the Dalesman Cafe in Gargrave for some fuel aka a fry up, just before they o...
  • Horsing about
    on Jul 31, 2016 in pootles Overheard strava
    Went out for a little pootle with Peli. She got to see her horses, which is nice. One the steepest part of the hill our of Bradly, I hit some cow much – the joy of living rural – did a wheel spin which was rather fun :) Overheard (upon sp...
  • The end of Le tour
    on Jul 24, 2016 in pootles strava
    Went out for a warm up, so we are ready for the last day of the tour. Looking forward to the women’s race. Hmm, GPS lost about 2 miles some how, I must have faffed a bit. Though look at that – eight yes 8 PR’s \o/ https://www.strava...

    Went out with wonderful Peli for a ride today, great company she is. Weather and views were brilliant. I got over 300 miles in total on Tigger aka the Azub Six. Here’s is a few snaps from today :)
  • Not Mount Ventoux
    on Jul 14, 2016 in pootles strava
    In sympathy with the pro’s on the Tour de France, I decided to also not cycle Mount Ventoux today. It was the – longest, fastest, less resting, fewest stops, most climbed – ride I have done since coming back to riding. And I feel go...
  • We went out riding, Me and my girlfriend Sue, erm Peli
    on Jul 10, 2016 in pootles strava
    Went out for a little ride with Peli today and the song Riding with Sue got stuck in my head. Many versions out there, but D-A-D’s version, on their fantastic album “Call of the Wild“, is of-course the best – https://www.youtu...
  • Ship O’hoy!
    on Jun 19, 2016 in pootles Azub strava
    Today’s ride was rather eventful. One of the mini narrow boats, that people hire for the day, tried to beach itself. I spotted it right on the other bank, coming at full sail – yeah I know, but you know what I mean – out from the ov...
  • Wrong turn
    on Jun 18, 2016 in pootles strava
    Well more of a missed turn and couldn’t be bothered to go back up the long down hill that I just went down. Was out to test a flat/rolling three mile look up on the hill behind Silsden. Though it is all uphill to get to, one I had to stop and p...
  • Riding on Lewis
    on Jun 15, 2016 in Featured cycling Isle of Lewis Scotland
    Well, I’m back on a bike after a small hiatus and boy do I feel good \o/ We just spent a week on the Isle of Lewis where I got to ride in “anger” for the first time in three and a bit years. Thursday, we packed the van and headed no...
  • Early walk to Pen-y-GhentA last minute decision saw me packing the sleeping, some nibbles and Tilley into the van. We drove up to Pen-y-Ghent in the Yorkshire Dales just as the sun was setting. I found a wild camping spot with the view of one of the three peaks. While I enjo...
