"I think for me it's more about the magical adventure - adventure that overrides the occasional pain and effort of it. I mean come on - riding my bike from Boston to Maine under a full moon? Beyond my wildest dreams, plain an...

The next best thing to going on a bicycle adventure is reading someone else's account of their own adventures. Looks like a great start to an exciting journey!
"Rail-to-trail" is a term used in the USA for a program to transform disused railway lines to shared use paths for cycling and walking. The UK doesn’t have a formal national plan for that but it does happen on a site-to-site ...

The organisers of the Bespoked UK Handmade Bike Show (see here for my review of the 2014 event) have just announced the dates for next year: And... as you can see... the event is moving back to Bristol. I have mixed feeling...
