La Berade, France

During a week-long cycling trip in France, where we ticked off some very famous climbs in the french alps, like the Lacets de Montvernier, Alp D’Huez & more. On what was penned as a rest-day, aside from the 40 mile, 3-thousand feet of climbing, it was suggested that we tackle a road which seemed on […]

Dunnet Head Shadows

During a charity cycle ride, one of the stops was Dunnet Head, in Scotland – also known as the most northerly point of mainland Britain. Pictured here is JP & Jim, standing on top of a monument on Easter Head, reading about the landscape and the views. It was a miserable, overcast day, which suited […]

Crest of the hill

Over 3 days, 20+ cyclists consisting of strangers, friends and family alike, travelled from Lairg to Thurso, and onto the island of Orkney. It was part of another Prestwick Cycle Challenge, but this time the ‘challenge’ was re-enforced by horrendous weather. This day in particular, however, the weather held off long enough to get a […]

The travelled route

On another one of the yearly Prestwick Cycle Challenge rides, me and a group of 20+ friends and strangers alike, found ourselves in Scotland, soaking up the beautiful landscape. In this shot, you can see where we’ve come from (the tiny house slightly right of centre frame). I stopped to take a moment to shoot […]

It was part of the Prestwick Cycle Challenge charity cycle (Although the ‘challenge’ part of this stunning trip wasn’t as emphasised as […]

Pointed Summit of Helm Craig

I’ve mentioned before that I‘m not the best hiker. Contrary to that, this photo was taken right at the start of a little 10-mile walk up Helm Craig, in Grasmere. This black and white shot was taken about half a mile further up the climb than my ‘viewpoint’ shot. It seems like a gloomy, mordor-esque […]

Rocacorba Climb, Girona

This picture isn’t all that. It’s the sort of generic picture you scroll past on Facebook and think nothing of. I suppose in the eye of someone different, every single shot I’ve ever taken might ignite the same feeling. The reason I like this shot, however, is because it sums up our day in Girona, […]

Through the clouds on Ingleborough

I’m not much of a walker. At least, not a ‘hiker’. I feel at home on the bike, and I’m comfortable running. There’s a shot of me on this site running a 10k in Tatton Park. I’m proud of that run – 40:34 seconds for a 10k remains my PB. I digress – Hiking isn’t […]
