Please Excuse the Radio Silence

First off, I must apologise for my radio silence on the blog. I know the golden rule of blogging is update the site regularly, but it’s also true that sometimes life just gets in the way. And I have had rather a lot of stuff going on! What have I been doing? In summary:

Mountains and Cities

This morning I arrived into Edinburgh on the Caledonian Sleeper train. I came out of the station, in search of breakfast, and the the first thing I noticed was imposing rocks of Arthurs Seat, silhouetted in the morning sunshine, visible from my vantage point in the centre of town.

On Film at the Etape Suisse Road Cycling Event Launch

In April 2014 I was invited along to the launch of the Etape Suisse, a new concept in the world of cycling events. The launch took place in the Houses of Parliament, and as well as wanting to know more about the Etape Suisse itself, I have to admit to being more than a little nosy about what Westminster was like on the inside.

Eurobike, Yeah! Pretzels, Bratwurst and New Women’s Cycling Gear for 2015.

Eurobike 2014 collage women's cycling gear

The annual Eurobike trade show is a bike lovers heaven and hell rolled into one. The huge, vast, and numerous halls of the Friedrichshafen Messe in Germany are taken over by brands, retailers, and manufacturers big and small.

Megavalanche 2014 Gallery

In January 2014 I thought ‘Hey, I really need a challenge this year. Something to push me to develop my mountain biking skills, to make me work on my fitness, something to aspire to.” Although I’ve been mountain biking a few years, what with living in London, being in a long-distance relationship, and having a hectic job I was at best a weekend rider. Every time I went riding, it took me a good few hours if not days to get back into the swing of things. I wanted to improve.
