New Deep Section Wheels

I’ve only been talking about getting some deep section wheels for my bike for about 6 years! Many a time I have thought I’d take the plunge and get some but never quite did. I have now finally done so. Only the best will do Part of the procrastination was brought about by the fact...

Running, Surfing, Sky’s Garden Nursery & Bike Riding – Bank Holiday Fun from Ynyslas

We didn’t really have much planned for Bank Holiday Monday. For a start I kind of forget about Bank Holidays as I don’t usually ‘go into’ work on a Monday but work from home. However, Anna and Morgan were off so it seemed as though we should do something. Running around Ynyslas I was up...

Cross Biking in the Hills of Mid West Wales

I like to do my best to fill the time between Christmas and New Year with activities and this year the weather seems to have been helping. Yesterday was cloudy and cold but dry at least.

Braving Storm Barbara – Windsurfing and Biking

What a day that was! There has been very little wind for what seems like ages. Very little apart from the mad, short-lived and very destructive squall that we had back in November. The forecast for the run up to Christmas was looking good wind-wise though so I was chomping at the bit and ready to...

Christmas Cross – Welsh Cyclo-cross League Final

After a Christmas gathering in Bristol, we packed up on Sunday morning and headed off in the mist and murk across the bridge to Wales. Our destination was Caerphilly Mountain for the final round of the Welsh Cyclo-cross league. I had my usual excuses – my knees were sore, I hadn’t been training and I’d eaten...

Cross by the Sea – Welsh Cyclo-cross League Round 10

I missed round 9 of the Welsh Cyclo-cross league last weekend as we were away in Devon. From what I saw though it was an extremely cold, very muddy and showy affair – just what I was expecting from Cyclo-cross really. By contrast round 10 in Pembrey, Cross by the Sea, was clear and sunny...

Llanerchaeron Cross – Welsh Cyclo-cross League Round 8

Round 8 of the Welsh Cyclo-cross league was at Llanerchaeron, just outside Aberaeron. Although still a 50 minute drive from here it was my local event of the series which meant a fairly lazy start to the day. I was still up early though. Early enough to see the sunrise and to get lots of...
