  • Fatigue

    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,…

  • Laterz

    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…

  • Back in a week

    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 info@multimap.com and…

  • Return

    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…

  • The Big Dog Cometh

    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.

  • Back soon

    I’m off mountain biking for a week. In the meantime I’ve added an archive to Clagnut and made some fundamental changes to the RSS feed, discovering FeedDemon along the way.

  • Four Things

    This meme is getting really irritating isn’t it?

  • I’ve been away

    Why I haven’t been blogging much recently and what I’ve missed over the past few weeks. Highlights include Todd Dominey’s PGA Open Championship and Phantom Power, the new album from Super Furry Animals. Also a brief critique of the new Pixelsurgeon site.

  • Col de Joux Plane

    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…

  • Taking on the Tour

    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.

  • Dunwich Dynamo

    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.

  • I ran a marathon

    Last Sunday I completed the inaugural Brighton marathon. It was a great day, for a good cause.

  • Top Tunes 2005

    Thought I’d better sneak this one in before the end of January. Here’s the track listing to my annual compilation, this year cleverly titled as ‘The Best Songs I Bought In 2005 Ever’. Turns out it was a surprisingly good year.

  • On Lomography

    The Lomographic Society website has much to admire from a design and marketing perspective, and it encourages a great photographic philosophy. But is a 35mm camera really the right medium for a snap-happy ethos, or does digital win hands down?

  • I’m back

    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.

  • But why, some say, the moon?

    Returning from speaking at the Web App Summit, we watched the brilliant Frost/Nixon and I was reminded of JFK’s fantastic 1962 Moon speech to Rice University.

  • List of pangrams

    There used to be a page on Wikipedia listing pangrams in various languages. This was deleted yesterday. Pangrams can be occasioanlly useful for designers, so I’ve resurrected the page of here, pretty much as it was in Wikipedia.
