TwiggyArms kayaks the Thames #KayakingTheThames

It seemed a perfectly reasonable thing to do with the down time between Christmas and New Year. Never mind I didn’t own a kayak, nor that I’d never really kayaked before. Those were arbitrary to the fact that I could end my year with a little adventure, given my track record for the year, itContinue reading “TwiggyArms kayaks the Thames #KayakingTheThames”

Final weigh in and cheesy grin time @transambikerace

Who Sam Weller is and why Wochma (a town in Estonia) is beyond me, but for my first and certainly not my last double century of the year, it was a corker of a ride. Given the extreme weather of late and a forecast for lashing rain and howling winds on Saturday and lovely calmContinue reading “Sam Weller’s day trip to Wochma 200km”

My plea fell on deaf ears – here it is again – no one get married in 2015. Please!

You may not remember, I sent out a plea “please no one else get married in the first six months of next year.” My plea fell on deaf ears it seems. So it’s back to the drawing board for next years cycling plans as one of our longest standing friends, I saw this chap born,Continue reading “My plea fell on deaf ears – here it is again – no one get married in 2015. Please!”
