Happy New Year 2017! 

Happy New Year everyone! 2016 was a pretty great year for me. A huge thank you to everyone who made it wonderful. Life can be taken so fast so it’s important to grasp it and enjoy it. Live it! Carpe diem. YOLO. I shall make 2017 a special one. The plans on how to do [...]

London night out

A few weeks ago, on Friday 26th August I went for my first ever proper night out in London and I LOVED it. Firstly I met Seb at around 12.30pm in St. Pancras. We walked along to our hotel in Euston. After a rest break, we left and cycled down to The Shard. Since its [...]

Bicycles, Bins, Bombs and no plan B

Lots of B’s. Bicycling, Bins, Bombs and no plan B. I finally got round to creating the following video. I have a tendency to film everything and anything. On the Sunday evening when I arrived back in Wellingborough the idea of beginning the seemingly humungous task of editing it was daunting. With no one to [...]

Royal Critical Soho

On Friday I got the train down to London. Every so often, East Midlands Trains sends me via email a £10 money off voucher for any journey to or from London St. Pancras so a return was only £9.10.  I decided I wanted to go exploring and do something different so after arriving in London [...]

Critical Mass, Ride London, and Ben and Jerry’s

On Friday I took part in Critical Mass.  I met Tom at Hyde Park and we cycled to meet his friend, Felix and his friend, Thomas and then onwards to roughly assemble for around 7pm.  At 7.15pm the mass rolled out.  The 1000 odd cyclists that take part in Critical Mass is a spectacle.  Despite [...]

I partook in June 2015′s Critical Mass.  If you have stumbled upon this blog, or have somehow missed the plethora of posts from me about it before, Critical Mass is an assemblage of predominantly cyclists which occurs on the last Friday of every [...]

Critical Mass

Hello, Yesterday I took part in London’s Critical Mass.  As always, it was superb.  The atmosphere was amazing.  This is the third consecutive month, before that I was working the day in June, and back in May I took part in Nottingham’s Critical Mass. After a couple of hours we stopped outside Buckingham Palace and [...]

2014-08-29 - Wellingborough to London

Cycling 111 miles

Yesterday I cycled 85 miles ish from Wellingborough to London! I forgot to check my odometer as I arrived and only checked it after I took part in Critical Mass. I met up with Tom and then we all cycled for hours. I left around 10.50pm. All in all, yesterday I travelled 111 miles, for [...]

Life update

Long time no update. Time flies. Since I finished at University I have been on holiday with Sophie to visit my friend Amy in Grenoble, France. It was a lovely break away after the final stretch of university. Weather was lovely! As I said in my last vlog, I cycled with no clothes on through central [...]
