I’ll let you decide… Some of you will love this, others will loathe it. It’s touring bicycle technical pornography at its best (or worst). On a dampish afternoon here in Yorkshire, I give you Wanda, the Koga Signature WorldTraveller… Now, where shall we start? The frame! The handlebars… […]
Not much to say. On with the photos… And that is all folks. Hope you’ve enjoyed this cycling-cruising ‘adventure’. Normal service will soon be resumed…
Finally! Some cycling… And not just any cycling. For the first time in my life I have been on an e-Bike on a short ride along the Mosel at Cochem, a place famous for its fairy-tale castle. Great fun was had and this e-Bike sceptic has been converted. […]
The town that keeps on giving. Most places have a nice area and then it stops around the next corner. Bernkastel-Kues just keeps on delivering; every street, every square is more pretty than the previous, and so it goes on… (or so it seems). Chocolate box stuff here […]

The ship hasn’t been far today; an early morning arrival in Strasbourg (from Mannheim – see previous post…) and we’ve been moored here – adjacent to the EuroVelo 15 of all things – ever since. Rainy outside but I did spend an amiable few hours wandering the streets […]
The weather report from the Cycle Touring Festival in Clitheroe is not great this Sunday morning. Somewhat reminiscent of Switzerland in August 2010; very wet but not that cold. (More details in ‘Crossing Europe…‘.) Yesterday, however… Beautiful!
Today the Tour de Yorkshire returned to the cobbles of Halifax and stage 4 of the race set off from the historic Piece Hall. In fairness, we didn’t get to see much of the riders themselves (not to the extent that I was able to see them in […]
