Ticket To The Moon Hammock Review

  • Reviews

Hammock camping looks great, let’s not deny it. There’s no cooler picture than one with a hammock and bike resting on the same tree, a wild view of woodland reaching out into the distance. In the hammock lays a tired soul, but tired with contentedness having found the perfect spot to hang their bed for the night. Hammocks look great but everything I’d heard about… Read More »Ticket To The Moon Hammock Review

Bike Ranch Snowdonia

Bike Ranch Snowdonia is ideally situated for a proper adventure on mountain bikes. Sure, road cycling and walking are good in the area too, but if you’re heading to the Ranch it’s probably because you’re looking to ride bikes on arguably some of the best trails Wales has to offer. With Coed-y-Brenin literally minutes down the road by bike, it couldn’t be more perfect for… Read More »Bike Ranch Snowdonia

Using products to practice

I’m definitely trying to live more outdoors but there’s inevitably time when I can’t get outside. I’m often guilty of collecting plenty of photographs and videos and spacing them out over the following days and weeks. The insatiable beast that is social media demands regular and consistent content in order for your account to be seen by others. And, if the dream of living a… Read More »Using products to practice

Living a life more adventurously

I recently tweeted what I thought was an innocent enough question, simply because I was curious. I wondered if it’s just me who really likes to take my time on some rides. I reckon that making coffee on a camping stove is one of life’s joys. Something about it being an almost tedious process without distraction makes it enjoyable. Popping to a cafe is great,… Read More »Living a life more adventurously

NEC Cycle Show 2022

I wasn’t even sure I wanted to go. Weighing up the idea of looking at bikes and gear versus being out on the bike was something I’d spent time on. After all, my time is limited alongside working full time. Is it worth it? Should I just cancel? In the end, I went. I’d spent the money on parking already so it seemed to make… Read More »NEC Cycle Show 2022

Riding bikes and taking pictures is what i do

Since 2015, but especially in the last few years, Pedal Slip has grown. I don’t mean me – I mean the ‘brand’ that is Pedal Slip. Somehow, this little thing I’ve created to share my own rides and inspire others has started to get its own legs and be noticed. It’s incredible for me to see that happening. It’s taken me to incredible places, helped… Read More »Riding bikes and taking pictures is what i do

A Slow Pace Ride

  • Journal

Slowing down and appreciating being outdoors is more and more part of my riding. There’s a time and a place for throwing on the full face, knee pads, and grabbing the bars. And I still love to test my nerve on technical descents, but more and more I like to just get out to experience the world. To slow down. This week has been a… Read More »A Slow Pace Ride

‘Ard Rock Thoughts

  • Journal

‘Ard Rock was a last-minute decision for me. I have mentioned several times in past blog posts how I am absolutely not made for racing. My mindset is one with a competitive nature and I enjoy riding my bike as an escape. To race would lead to a slippery slope of itching for a better time. That’d lead to obsessing about training and nutrition and… Read More »‘Ard Rock Thoughts

The First of many days

  • Journal

The day started like any other. A Saturday with nothing unusual or abnormal except for the collection of bags by the back door; bags I’d packed the night before in my excitement for the trip. Although the day was the same as any other August Saturday, my weekend excitement levels were above their norm. It was the first multi-day bikepacking trip I’d go on. The… Read More »The First of many days
