A couple of my followers have recently messaged me about this monument I talked about, so I thought I’d have a ride up there and show you want it’s all about. The Needle’s Eye is a monument located near me, within about 25 minutes cycling distance. It’s a mid 18th Century folly, supposedly built atContinue reading “The Needle’s Eye”
Today for the first time ever, I did a “big shop” on the bike; coming back with quite a large number of items. The bike in question was the Fiido D2S and the trailer was my brand new Burley Travoy, which after fixing the minor manufacturing defect is now absolutely perfect. It easily coped withContinue reading “I’d have never thought this would happen.”
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?”

I’ve set up a new site (along with a guy called Che) Visit it at http://www.foldingbicycle.club.
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”.”
The reason I added a question mark is because I think this will be a challenge for me – not just because of my fitness levels, but because of my time commitment – it takes me about an hour to do 7 miles at present, so that’s around a 15 hour commitment – however –Continue reading “100 miles in May?”
I was passing a farm sale on Wednesday and something caught my eye… It was a folding bike in bright red – very unusual, and definitely rather cool! I went and enquired about it, expecting it to be about £100 and the old chap said £20. It had been in his barn for years andContinue reading “New bike!”
