One day one photo - 8: Cyclist living the good life!
I like riding my bike, watching cycling and writing about cycling. But the news is I'm not all about cycling! Every so often a cycling friend of mine may find themselves out of action due to injury and is unable to ride their bike for a few weeks. At that p...

A lovely subway a stone's throw away from Crystal Palace park where they do the weekly road races. Could this be an alternative venue for after-race drinks? 
Last weekend London held its annual Open House, in which various official buildings, famous landmarks and residential homes with special architecture open their doors to the public. I always want to get out for this and visit...

I hadn't realised last Wednesday was Bike to Work day! Every day is Bike to Work day for me! And the view from Blackfriars Bridge is one of the best bits. What's your favourite view when riding to work?
Apparently it was Bike to Work day last Wednesday. I didn't know until after the fact. After all, every day is bike to work day for me (as long as its not raining)! I enjoy riding to work. It sets me up nicely for the day, an...

It's great to see a girl that you used to race with as a youngster have success on the world stage. Well done Corrine Hall. Very happy for you and your Lora Turnham.
Team GB enjoyed Olympic success in Rio, with a number of the medals coming from cycling. From the looks of things this success is being repeated in the Paralympics. Sarah Storey became the most decorated female paralympian wh...

+Karl Roche You never know! Your girls may go on to great things. Joanna Rowsell-Shand started out at Sutton CC as well. I remember her as a youngster. She was certainly good back then, but there were other strong girls and we didn't automatically think that she would be at the Olympics!

A nod to Roald Dahl from a 2wheeled perspective.
Happy birthday to Roald Dahl who would have been 100 years old today! This casts me back to a photo shoot I did in Great Missenden a few years ago as part of an article I wrote for Cycling Active about cycle rides in the Chil...

Training Rides  - 
 
One of my favourite views when on one of my local off-road routes - riding in Addington Hills (aka Shirley Hills). What are your favourite views when riding?
