Re: Lejog 7 days first timer

Hi Tezzer, looking to do LEJOG for the first timer, first Bank Holiday in May for me. Not entirely sure about time span probably 6-8 days is realistic for me. Have a basic route up to somewhere South of Manchester for now I am still undecided about what I'd like to see along the way - definitely wan...

Re: Cycling (and other) plans 2020

Bealach Na Ba is on my list in April and hoping to do LEJOG in May. I also have an ultra long distance event that I am hoping to do in the Summer, just crossing my legs for the next few weeks as there are only so many places aside from that I have signed up to an event in the Peak District called Pu...

Audax riding

Hi and happy new year to everyone. I've done a fair share of audax rides over the last couple of years particularly in the last season so I thought I'd share a few with you that I have done in this time; a sort of top 10 but not in any special order.

Re: This is Audax

Thank you for all the comments, it's nice to see a debate Audax on the forum. The intention of this video, and to confirm there will be more over time, is to show the broad spectrum of audax through the rides I have personally experienced over the course of time. I am no Damon Peacock so it is unlik...

Re: This is Audax

I plan on doing a series of "This is Audax" video shorts, they are designed to give glimpses into the world of audax. Yes, Damon Peacock has lots of video content and has an endearing voice behind the camera.

If you've ever considered riding long distance it's an amazing experience you get to visit some wonderful pl...

Snowdonia 200km audax around the national park

So this time last week I started out on a DIY audax around the Snowdonia National Park - I have to say this has to be one of my favourite bike r...

Bikepacking around Eastern England

Hello everyone, last Friday 19th July I started a 7 day bikepacking trip across Eastern England the Home Counties managing to sink 1100km and over 6500metres of climbing which compared to say an audax is quite modest really as it was more of a cycle tour for me; camping every 100 miles or so along t...

Summer Solstice 24 hour TT

Another year has flown past and so I thought this year I'd have a go at a solo 24hour time trial around well Lincolnshire most because there are plenty of flat options :lol: Having watch Adam Watkins on YouTube doing the Mersey Roads 24TT it looks quite appealing - although I am in no way as fast as...

Fietselfstedentocht 2019

Hello, Last Friday I set off from Crowle in Lincolnshire on a 200km audax arriving at the port of Hull Friday evening to catch the ferry to Rotterdam. I took along my GoPro so I could capture lots of footage for my YouTube channel. I had many reasons to travel to the Neterlands, one the great cycle ...

Re: Top 10 Lincolnshire Cycling Climbs

Hi, yeah riding on the flat is a killer in the fens!

I always believed the highest point is near Normanby-le-Wold at that "golf ball" radar thing in the video. And wikipedia says that too!
