Introduction

WELCOME! I've been cycling through the Southeast Valleys of Wales since 2010 and I can't say (or show) enough about the place. I just love it. So if you've got the interest and would like to spend some time... sit back and let me show you some of the fabulous places I've discovered.

Writing songs about firing cannons


"To live is to war with trolls in heart and soul. To write is to sit in judgement on oneself."
- Ghosts, Henrik Ibsen



Admittedly, my blog has gone off in a completely different direction of late. I'm no longer interested in lengthy descriptions. I'm over the romance. There are plenty of people waxing poetic on their cycle trips. They can have it. I'm going somewhere else.

Something changed this past year... I don't quite know how to describe it. But I feel different and I'm wanting more than what I've been doing. And I'm gonna get into it.

I'll document my journeys. I'm sure that I'll keep tracking my mileage. (I can't shake that crazy.) I'll probably keep the gear section, but I'm reconsidering the routes and events sections. I'm done with planning events for other people. Seriously. If you want to ride your bike... just get on the damn thing and ride. You don't need any help from me.

I'm gonna plan events for me. If you want to come along, drop me a line.



I'm crossing the road, heading up the tractor path through the field to the "old doc house". It's fallen down in the woods. That's where you'll find me.
