UK based former cycle tourist and now Bikepacking and Bikerafting around the UK and Europe.

Bikerafting – What is it?
Well that’s the question I was asking myself when I stumbled upon the term on Facebook one lazy Sunday afternoon…Several hours later I found myself getting extremely excited at the prospect of new gear, much to my bank manager’s chagrin. Essentially, bike rafting is simple; Strap an inflatable raft to …

Zaragoza, Lleida and Montblanc
Having been off blogging for a few days, thought I’d share some of today’s ride. It’s been an odd couple of days, mostly enjoyable, slightly weird and very painful. Having hit Zaragoza from Villafranca, a long, flat(ish) and uneventful ride, just in time to check into a hotel, throw my …

Pamplona to Villafranca
Today’s ride was lovely, although a little dull to begin with. I didn’t leave the hotel until gone 10am and my butt didn’t hit the saddle until gone 11am – largely due to several hours spent in a wonderful Irish bar the previous evening and then stocking up on food …

Lekunberri to Pamplona
Today was in total contrast to yesterday. I woke early, as is my norm, and wandered down for breakfast. As the only guest in the hostel I was treated to exceptional personal service – so much that I was actually a good chunk later leaving than I’d intended. A good …

San Sebastián to Lekunberri
I was aware that it was a tad lumpy between San Seb and Pamplona but typically I had underestimated just how lumpy it was. Remembering the end of previous tours where I was able to cope with hills reasonably well, if not quickly, I figured I would be ok. I …

Guernica to San Sebastián
Interesting day cycling. Or not cycling as it turned out. I was up at a reasonable time and after putting some air in the tyres, headed off for what promised to be a tough day’s riding. Some big lumpy bits between Guernica and San Sebastián. Before I’d got to the …

Bilbao to Guernica & Getting here
London to Bilbao to Guernica Slight change of plan for the start of this one. Having researched Bilbao prior to arrival and looked at the map for my potential route into San Sebastian on day one, I decided to modify things a little. There’s a village in Northern Spain which …

Donaueschingen to Riedlingen
For this trip I have invested in a GoPro Hero 6. There are still a few photos thrown in, either from the iPhone or my camera, however, it’s so much easier just to hit record on the GoPro than to stop and snap. The first day’s riding was tough, as …

Getting to Donaueschingen
Today was a bit of a challenge. I’d massively underestimated how long it would take me to disassemble my bike and trailer and cram it into the bike bag. It took a while – unfamiliar trailer and some rookie mistakes kept me up until 10.30 and a long bath extended …

The Danube Part 1
This year’s little bike ride is following another river, the Danube, from it’s source in Donaueschingen, Germany, some 750 miles to Budapest. This is the first half of the Danube cycling route – the second half would be to follow the river all the way to the Black Sea through , Croatia, …

Port-La-Nouvelle to Carcassonne, not quite on a bike!
Today was a mixed experience. Having seen the weather forecast for gusts of up to 45mph winds, I varied my route somewhat. Heading for Narbonne in the morning with the intention of turning inland to Carcassonne should the forecast prove to be over dramatic. Unfortunately it was correct – the …
