This year I am riding for …..


This time I wanted to ride for a UK charity and not one of the more well known ones. So I have picked an organisation that does some fantastic practical work to help disadvantaged people and their carers who are often the forgotten heroes.

Please check out my sponsorship page here….


I intend to auction of some fantastic cycling related prizes, subscribe to this blog to keep updated.

Normal Service has resumed….

Hello Webosphere, “The man on a bike” is back for more cycling adventures in preparation for RIDELONDON 2016. This year I am riding for the charity Revitalise¬†(More about that in a later post). Having not been on the bike much over the winter, I am feeling rather fat, old and unfit. I am guessing all that is going to have to change again. Getting ready for Ridelondon never seems to get any easier so this year is going to be a challenge.

So far the cycling activities this year have included.

1: Giving the bike a clean / service / oil and general overall.
2: A couple of commutes to work – just to check the bike is all good and everything is working.
3: A few hours on the turbo, just to see if the legs still work.


1: The bike is very clean.
2: The distance to work seems to be 3x what I remember.
3: My Legs seem to have forgotten everything about cycling.
