We just finished a five-day loop on Europe's most popular cycling route, the circuit of Lake Constance. No great physical challenge, but highly recommended for safety, beauty and culture.

Bicycle Insurance - Common Questions Asked

Since the increase in the number of bicycle enthusiasts out on the roads, so the demand for a more comprehensive insurance cover for cyclists has also increased. Some of the more traditional insurance packages such as home and contents insurance may not go far enough for the avid bicycle enthusiast and some of the more specialised packages for cyclists are an extra expense that may not be needed by many.

It always pays to do research when deciding on which type of insurance is…

Great interview - Eileen Sheridan: The Mighty Atom

The Bike Show (UK) has an inspiring interview with Eileen Sheridan that is well worth a listen.

Land’s End to John O’Groats is a classic cycle touring route. But it was also the blue riband distance among the long distance record-breaking heyday of the 1930s to the 1960s. In 1954 Eileen Sheridan, a diminutive cyclist from Coventry sponsored by the huge…

Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Aubergine


A beater bike, something to take to the shops, that's all I wanted.  The beater road bike I have is too small, my father's old Bennett also too small, the crap thing I picked up from St Vinnies, well it's crap and also too small.


So I searched far and wide for a super cheap 63cm road bike, couldn't find one that suited the purpose and ended up…

Incidentally, Little Dan has pretty…

More cops, more tickets...

Well, it happened again. And again, actually – I’ve really had a spectacularly successful run of collecting tickets over the last three weeks, totalling six tickets. That’s about $400 in fines (assuming the ones I contested for various reasons are upheld). But the one that I was going to write about didn’t happen on Pyrmont Bridge, and is notable as it’s the first ticket I have ever received…
