The blog starts here!

I have posted so many photos on Facebook of my bikes in various locations that friends have requested that I start a blog or write a book. Here is my blog!
Cycling is a new activity for me. After 25 years of long distance running it was necessary to give that a rest through health reasons and it was always my plan to migrate to two wheels if possible. Starting in May 2011 on an old mountain bike I soon caught the bug and needed to go further afield. A proper road bike was needed so the purchase of a Specialized Allez was made. This got me further afield and the idea of documenting the journeys was born.  

This is the first one that I took on a ride over to Stratford upon Avon about 12 months ago. This was the start of it all.

September 5th 2012. This is where it started in earnest. Out for a ride from my home in Leek Wootton I rode through the Pump Room Gardens in Leamington Spa and targeted the Bandstand as a prop for my bike. It was nice to see blue sky after such an awful summer.


  1. Amazing blog, I'm looking forward to watching your travels, defiantly need to organise a full team marmite photo!

    1. We do. Next time we are together we must set a definite date.
