Huge Changes | Family Life

If you follow me on Instagram, you might recently have seen a post about a massive change in my circumstances this year. We now have a daughter. Actually, we have had a daughter for a while but just chose not […]

Something ordinary made special

Sometimes in our efforts to do more, see more and live more we can if our efforts to do something epic we can miss what’s happening right in front of our faces. Adventure doesn’t need to be big, it doesn’t […]

Gravel Paradise in Mallorca

If you’re looking for a gravel holiday in the sun somewhere cheap and just a couple of hours flight from London, let me propose Mallorca. Just recently, I enjoyed the island’s extensive gravel trails at the inaugural Toros de Gravel event and […]

Ride with me and ASSOS Speed Club

I’ve been hoping for so long that ASSOS would set up a club to bring together cycling fans around the world so it was great news to hear that they’re doing just that. Based around an online hub where cyclists […]

Splat! Red Hook Crit Milan 18

It was meant to be the glorious end to the year’s racing. Training for the race had been a constant throughout the summer. I was hoping for a satisfying finish to a season, something to be proud of and I’d […]

A Grumpy Brussels City Crit

A couple of weekends ago I was standing next to a van shivering in torrential rain feeling sorry for myself.  I contemplated hurtling around a wet 1km circuit on a brakeless track bike. I thought of the corners, two tight hairpins […]

Review: Lost Lanes West

We all have favourite routes that we go back to time and time again. There’s so much to be said for familiarity, dependable cafes and hills in all the places you expect (and none of the places you don’t). However, […]

A Triple Race Week

You know that saying about buses? You wait all day and then three come along at once? Well yeah, that. For various reasons such as clashing dates, travel, family, work (as well as a real cooling off of racing in […]

Can Women Handle a Tour de France?

It’s no great secret that I care about equality and get regularly wound up by the injustices women face in many aspects of our lives. I’m a feminist. But I make that statement as a privileged white woman living in […]

This summer has been a whole heap of crazy fun already, so much so that my feet haven’t really touched the ground and I’ve been a little tardy in sharing everything I’ve been doing with you, dear readers. I endeavour […]
