So I cycled over 900 miles from John O'Groats to Land's End. One puncture, no injuries (except for sunburn & that time I zipped my nose up in my waterproof), no cycling shorts, no support crew & I nailed every hill.

|The second I put a banana in my bag it gets bruised and becomes poisonous. Stay where I can see you bike banana.|
Masking tape, I salute you.

|All the deer, no idea|
To celebrate the sun showing its face and enjoying it before it disappears again until June (it's bluffing, don't put your gloves away yet), I followed in Charles I's plague escaping Stuart footsteps and fled to Richmond Park

|Can you believe the London Eye is 15 years old already? It will be finishing school and getting a National Insurance card soon|
As it's turning into spring I thought I'd share some of the sights I've been enjoying recently in-between taking off layers and losing gloves.

So Mexico City's public cycle hire scheme, Ecobici, celebrates its 5th birthday. I have such fond memories of my time riding around that amazing city with them so here is my homage in photographic form. Cue music....

It's a given that you will ruin many pairs of trousers cycling. I've hulked many pairs of jeans over the years on my bike. While we can all accept that fault and even boast that it is a sign of wear and tear, ruining saddles with denim stains is a different matter. In recent years I have favoured pink, orange and (stupidly) white saddles, all of which have in no time become grubby due to cycling in jeans.
