Day 12, the final day of our ride from John o’Groats, took us from Liskeard to Land’s End. We made it. What a trip.

Journeying from Devon to the North West of Scotland to begin our 980 mile ride back from John o’Groats to Land’s End in aid of charity.
Since I knackered my Achilles tendon in December, I’ve been getting back into cycling and mountain biking in particular. The Brighton Big Dog race is on in August and uses the same tracks I now ride most weeks. We’ve entered a Clearleft team.
Video of the final minute of the stage. Update: Cav wins Stage 8 too!
I am ridiculously excited about this coming weekend. It is this weekend that the Tour de France visits England for the first time since 1994, and only the third time in its history. Get out and see it!
Two remarkable men attempt to ride the Tour course in the same number of days as the race itself. And Jeff’s book is five years old.
I’m tired; stiff and tired. Over Saturday night and into Sunday morning, I joined friends on the Dunwich Dynamo, a 120 mile night ride from Hackney to Dunwich on the Suffolk coast. It was to be the longest ride any of us had cycled in one day.
And there are photos. And a list of what’s been happening: Odeon crapsters, AMG retrograde, per-site stylesheets, disabling IE6 imagebar, Mozilla security flaw, Malarkey forms, Colly links, Gmail whitelist, XHTML to RSS and fantasy footie.
As of 5 o’clock tomorrow morning, I’m off on my annual pilgrimage to Morzine for a week’s mountain biking in the French and Swiss Alps. If anyone can fix the OS 9 bug on Multimap.com while I’m gone, please email the solution to firstname.lastname@example.org and…
A fantastic summer ride. And Kevin Spacey on a bridleway.
While we were in the Alps we decided to do a Tour de France climb. Not just any climb, but the Col de Joux Plane – an hors categorie ascent gaining 3,500ft over 8.5 miles from Samoëns to the summit. The Col is so notorious, it even has its own website. The climb…
Well I’m back from a fantastic 10 days biking. My old Cannondale just about held together and I suffered only a few cuts and bruises, aching limbs and the traditional ridiculous cyclist’s tan. More details and pikkies will appear here soon. In the meantime Multimap…
Tomorrow lunchtime I’m off to Morzine for ten days of Alpine mountain biking, for the third year in succession. As usual I’ve multiplied the cost of the trip by getting my grubby hands on a bunch of spanking new kit: Hope Mini disc brake, Race Face riser bars and…
Jon Webb is one of the fittest guys I’ve ridden with. On 22/23 June he decided to do the 24hr Red Bull Mountain Mayhem solo (as opposed to the usual team of four or more). That’s 24 hours non-stop mountain biking. The tiredness was beginning to totally consume me,…
