Outdoor Pursuits in Aberystwyth

Considering the amount of time I used to spend windsurfing, surfing, mountain-biking and other such Outdoor Pursuits I have been fairly lacking in such activities lately. Other things seem to have taken over and there just aren’t enough hours in the day and days in the week to fit it all in. Triathlon training certainly...

Mountain Biking in the Rain

What with autumn well and truly here, riding my bike on the roads isn’t quite as much fun as it is in the summer – I don’t mind the cold and rain, it’s just not so safe in the dark with cars and lorries sharing the road too. On top of that I’m supposed to be doing...

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...

Out of Action

You may have noticed that I haven’t been mountain biking, windsurfing or doing too many other slightly adventurous activities lately. Very much unlike me I know, but with some big triathlon races on my calendar I was not only training hard for them leaving little time for other recreation but I was doing my best to stay injury...

Riding on Knobblies for the Sake of it

It’s been a while but I finally got out on my mountain bike last night. About time too really with the Coed y Brenin Enduro just over a week away. It was my first night ride for years too, but I charged my battery, put my light on my helmet, checked my bike – the...

MTBing with Morgan

Morgan quite enjoys his cycling at the moment, so we had an action replay on Monday of the day we had on Friday. Once again it was bilberry picking up at Pendam followed by a picnic, a mountain bike ride and then some more bilberry picking. We went off in search of blackberries as well,...

Blueberry picking, Mountain Biking and Geocaching at Nant yr Arian

The school holidays seem to be flying by and the list of things Morgan and I wanted to do during them has barely been touched. We’ve been busy with plenty of other things but thanks to all of this, we haven’t even started on the days of geocaching, mountain biking, surfing, kayaking, gardening, painting and...
