Ok, I know it is not mountain biking, but I've always dreamed of this, and therefore, it was time to tackle this right of passage and embark on this classic ride. From the southwest tip of England to the northeast tip of Scotland, this was an "off the road" route, using small lanes, bike tracks … Continue reading Lands’s End to John O’Groats
So! I’ve spent quite a while building these routes on the Gower, they are all on trails legal with a bike, and get some great descents in, though by no means set in stone. I made these with one eye on guiding people through them. So it stays to bridleway, though you might spy some … Continue reading Gower MTB routes

In Oct '18 I hiked the GR 221 on neighbouring Majorca so felt somewhat prepared for Balearic island conditions. GR 223 … Continue reading Cami De Cavalls – Menorca

It's been an amazing few months since the last post. The most incredible dawny on Snowdon, plenty of bikepacking and lots of exploring finding new routes with the maps. Loads of trial and error see me pretty good at figuring out what's possible before I can see it in person. Getting back into racing has … Continue reading Rare trails in the Chablais Alps
Mountain Biking. A bicycle with thick tires that is made for riding on hills and rough ground. This technical, easy to navigate, gigglingly fast blast down a Snowdonia stunner is one of the top 10 mountains to ride in the UK. A classic, here follows the well known out-and-back route from Castell y Bere. 12 mi … Continue reading Cadair Idris
