Surf Skiing in Conwy I arranged to meet some fellow surf-skiers in Conwy on Saturday. I thought I could make a weekend of it. Surf Ski somewhere a little different for a change, do some mountain biking and then sleepover in the camper and continue my Coast Path run project on the Sunday. The Facebook...

Cross Mountain 2016

There was no race in the Welsh Cyclo-cross League series this weekend so I had signed up to do ‘Coss Mountain’ instead. Cross Mountain is an off-road cycle event organised by the same group that organised the Tide to Tide event I did a few weeks ago. It is open to both mountain bikes and cyclocross...

Nant yr Arian MTB Ride

As my Cyclo-cross race this weekend was on Saturday, I was able to join a few friends on a mountain-bike ride at Nant yr Arian on Sunday. It had been years since I’d seen a couple of these people, and months since I’d seen the others so it was a nice little reunion of old biking...

Sunday Trail Fest

It’s been a while since I’ve been up in the hills. We have been there for walks with the Scouts, but we haven’t even been out blueberry picking this year for a change. The arrival of a new bike changed that though on Sunday when I had a bit of Trail Fest at Nant yr Arian....

Bank Holiday Activities

Dawn Chorus in the Dunes That was a good bank holiday. My usual early start but for a change I didn’t get up immediately but lay in bed listening to the dawn chorus. The blackbirds and sparrows were in good voice and they were soon joined by Skylark too. I’m sure there were robins and plenty...

GoPro Mounting Accessories

If you haven’t already noticed, I had a new GoPro Hero 4 Silver for Christmas, complete with lots of GoPro mounting accessories. I also had plenty of GoPro mounting accessories leftover from my previous GoPro camera. What I didn’t have was somewhere to keep them all, but Morgan had a nice silver carry case that...
