Happily, for the less energetic amongst us, this has nothing to do with peddling up a hill.
Delighted to see the various campaigns for safer cycling – The Times, Telegraph, Evening Standard…here’s another fun idea for safer cycling – well done to The Design Taxi for coming up with this…
Last weekend we headed off to Llanfairfechan to let off some steam.
Daf and Jim decided to race a BMX bike down the jetty – just to see if they could! Don’t try this at home…it was soggy and silly…it also took a long time to wash the salt off the bike!
Nicky decided to head off to the BMX 2012 test event and leave it to the professionals….
A lazy morning listening to ‘Excess Baggage’ on Radio 4 has been inspiring. Matt Carroll’s new book ‘Escape Routes’ details cycle routes that take in great pubs, B&B’s and countryside – now that’s what I call cycling.
He admits he was a lycra clad, velcro booted speedster who, when he had to stop to look at a map one day, took a moment to look at his cycling companions getting angry with the delay and thought – hang on, we’re speeding through a very pretty place…I want to stop for a pint.
So – he hung up the lycra, swapped into some sensible shoes and mapped out some lovely bike rides. Let’s hope he heads to Wales for the follow up book…
Unless we can do our own version via this site? Leave suggestions for lovely rides below and we’ll feature them.
The summer is here (or so they say) and we’ve been off to London and Barcelona checking out the bikes – of course!
Do you have any photos of great bike schemes and routes? Leave a message below, email us a picture – let’s show how easy it is to get peddlin’
So – what is Catalan for Boris Bike?
