DXA Scan Results - Whole Body 2

Ramp Test and DXA Scan

As regular readers of this weblog will know, I often volunteer as a participant in various studies at the Sports and Exercise Department at Aberystwyth University. Most of these require a fair bit of my time to do but often prove interesting and painful in equal measure. Interesting from a point of view of getting a measure on...

Let it Snow…

We didn’t get huge amounts of snow here, but it did start snowing quite heavily whilst Morgan and I were out Mountain Biking yesterday at Pendam. Once we’d finished biking and got into the car it came down really heavily again so Morgan took a quick video clip of the snowstorm as I drove along...

A Slippery Slimey Ride

I’ve been getting out on my mountain bike a bit more lately. I’ve been organising Night Rides everyone Monday evening and they seem to have been going down well. There seem to be new faces each week as word of the rides spread and most people seem to be enjoying it and coming back on...

Outdoor Pursuits in Aberystwyth

Busy Bank Holiday

Seeing as we didn’t have a huge amount planned for the Bank Holiday weekend and were simply staying at home we seemed to pack quite a bit in. Triathlon Training and Animations on the Big Screen Saturday started with a bike ride for me, just a quick ride towards Machynlleth, a quick blast around the...

MTBing Pendam

With Anna working on Saturday, Morgan and I went out for a nice little mountain bike ride together. It’s about time Morgan went out on his bike as he’s barely been on it since getting it last October. That’s partly our fault for not offering to take him out more often, partly his fault for...

New Bike for Morgan 1

Time for a New Bike

No, unfortunately it’s not for me, as I stopped growing many years ago and therefore have no legitimate justification for a new bike every couple of years. Morgan on the other hand is still growing and therefore has. Thankfully the Isla Bike , a Beinn 20 Large, that we bought for him two years ago...
