  1. Audaxing 2018

    In 2017 I participated in my first audax event and grew to love them. 2018 I want to explore new roads and routes, and get the distance out ever longer. Here I'm going to post my audax ride notes and odd photos, check my Strava profile for blow-by-blow rides. Forth & Tay 200 5th March - Postponed due to snow. 18th March - Cancelled due to snow. It'll now be run as a DIY event - so I'll pick… continue reading »

  2. Paris Marathon 2018

    Running. I did a bit at school, was ok at the cross country, and enjoyed it a bit - I mean who really enjoys school cross country? Next time I put on a pair of running shoes was when I had the idea of doing a duathlon just over a year ago. It was ok, but I kept picking up a niggle of some description.

That was the plan… continue reading »

Full details on the build up to this is in my earlier blog post. We drove up to Archintraid after work on Friday night, arriving at the cottage we’d booked, in the darkness. Single track… continue reading »

  5. 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 »
