Bikepacking Robin Hood Country

  • Journal

I was sent the link in the evening after work and I glanced at the route quickly. 137 miles with almost two-thirds off-road. It sounded like a dream. I was in.

We’d been chatting a while but never actually caught up with each other in person… Read More »Bikepacking Robin Hood Country

‘Adventure’. The word conjures visions of mountains, epic vistas, and arduous travel. But not to me. To me, adventure is a feeling. It’s that sense of escaping and coming across something unexpected. It doesn’t have to be physically gruelling, or unimaginably beautiful. It just has to be an escape and a discovery. With this mindset shift, the scope for adventure opens up and finds me… Read More »The Chippy Ride

Walking Near Penrith: Lacy’s Caves, Long Meg & Her Daughters

  • Journal

Stone circles don’t come much better than Long Meg and her Daughters and, aside from Stonehenge, they don’t come any bigger in England. Throw in a folly known as Lacy’s Caves and this walk has a bit of everything without being too taxing at only 5.1 miles (8.2km). Start at Long Meg’s car park. As a Yorkshireman, I’m pleased to be able to say it’s… Read More »Walking Near Penrith: Lacy’s Caves, Long Meg & Her Daughters

Bikepacking from edinburgh to york

I needed a challenge. Something adventurous to do that would provide some physical difficulty and let me see new things. A friend – Scott – and I decided that we’d give Scotland a go. Our limited time meant that 8 days were up for grabs so Edinburgh to York seemed sensible. We thought it’d be somewhere between 5 and 7 in total, with a little… Read More »Bikepacking from edinburgh to york

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
