What’s with all the hate guys?

I sparked controversy a couple of days ago. I’ve had some pretty opinionated comments on Instagram from people who have since been removed from my circles. Why? I hear you ask? Well consider this photo. I’m out on my Fiido enjoying a ride. I’ve got the trailer hitched on the back and I’ve just beenContinue reading “What’s with all the hate guys?”

At last. A true “journey”.

After many months of riding from a place, to a point, and then back again (and not dropping a ring in a volcano in-between either), yesterday I finally did a proper journey. I rode along the 5 weirs from Sheffield to Rotherham (via Hotel Chocolat of course!). The start of my journey was Sheffield Cathedral.Continue reading “At last. A true “journey”.”

Another fitness post…

This week I crossed the 100kg boundary in the right direction (down).

Over the last few weeks I’ve been collecting together both my oldContinue reading “Another fitness post…”

A little 8 mile hop.

I can’t believe how my stamina and fitness are improving. This little 8 mile ride would have killed me at one point but now I can do it on the DaHon without much concern. I’ve even got myself a new bag for it – it’s meant to go under the saddle on the seat post,Continue reading “A little 8 mile hop.”

Amazing weather we’ve been having!

We’re definitely having some amazing weather right now. Plenty of opportunity for some great bike rides. Biking is one of the ways I’m improving my fitness. Considering how unfit I have actually been at some points in my life I’m determined now as I approach 50 to never let myself get like that again. MyContinue reading “Amazing weather we’ve been having!”

To continue a theme.

The fitness kick continues. I’m now over 5 miles on a ride and unlike previous rides I’m now no longer finishing exhausted. It’s amazing how quick your fitness starts to return when you make the demand of your body. My waist hasn’t shrunk much, but I’ve noticed that the wobbly leftover of my old fatContinue reading “To continue a theme.”
