It hasn't been the best start to the year, and I know I've got a lot of making up to do, but at least I've managed to get in more than 100 miles for February. Every mile counts, after all. Continue reading

6 January. Well, here we are. Not a very bright start to the year – just one of my regular 14-mile routes. But it's these regular rides that will be the key to reaching my 2,500-mile target for the year.... Continue reading
