  1. Southern Uplands Audax

    Bucket list, do a 400km Audax. Saturday (12th August) was the day to get it ticked off. 3:30am my alarm went off, but I hadn’t slept much, probably a couple of hours at most - thinking about the day ahead, had I got everything I’d need, would my light batteries be sufficient… Quick shower, first breakfast; a peanut bagel and yogurt with muesli, everything in the car and on the… continue reading »

  2. Big MS 200 ride

    I’m riding the Tour of the Highlands in May raising funds for the MS Society. I kicked it all off with a route-art ride in the shape of the letters MS - 103 miles in October. Now I fancy giving a similar route another go, hopefully with a few folk joining me - this time 200 miles. Updates 14th April - We're all good for tomorrow :) Weather looking ok. Due to set off from St Andrews Westport… continue reading »

  3. Tour of the Highlands 2017 for MS

    In May - over three days - I'm going to be cycling 313 miles taking in climbs to five Scottish ski centres and raising money for the MS Society. I started cycling a couple of years ago, and after completing my first sportives last year I was looking for a challenge to target in 2017. Cue the Tour of the Highlands, 3 days, 313 miles, 20,000ft ascent. I have a family connection to multiple sclerosis,… continue reading »

  4. My first Audax - Forth & Tay 200

    Audax has been on my radar for a little while - longer events appeal for some strange reason and last week I bit the bullet and entered the Forth and Tay 200. An early start (for a Sunday) saw the alarm go at 6, breakfast, shower, and bike in the car, I was on the road at 6:40. Raining - ugh. Went bit further, still raining. This wasn't looking so inspired now! Got to where we were to park our cars… continue reading »

  5. Monikie Duathlon 2016/2017

    Monikie Duathlon Winter Series is a run of three events in December, January and February organised by the Angus Bike Chain Cycling Club. I was on a group ride earlier in the year and got chatting to a guy that seeded the idea that it might be fun to give it a go. Bit of something different over the winter, I got my entry in. Not having done much running that was my main area of focus. Despite being… continue reading »
