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.

VOLUME 02 ISSUE 01 
The BIG Issue


I'm hoping for a bigger & better year of cycling in 2018. In my first issue this year I've laid out a number of distinct goals, so sit back and hang on!

You may have read that I failed to reach any of my goals for last year and despite having some pretty significant numbers (see: 2017 Yearly Totals), I'm upping the ante with a new set of goals which are bigger and bolder!

I've also got this new blog structure to support. You may have noticed that I've taken on the role of publisher as well as author and this is going to be a tricky devil to maintain. Hopefully, you'll enjoy reading some of the articles I uncover.



New Year & New Plan

A New Hope
With respects to Star Wars, I too have taken on a new approach to my blog. Back in the day when websites were just beginning, everyone was trying to be a "portal". Well, here I am 20 years later and trying to do the same thing. See what you think of my ideas in "A New Hope".

Goals for 2018
It's a challenge to keep yourself challenged. Fortunately, I love cycling in this lovely little country and there's plenty to explore. Read about some of the interesting places I want to visit as well as some of the numbers I'll be chasing throughout the year in "Goals for 2018".

Grwyne Fawr Reservoir
I made a pledge to write up all the great rides for which I failed to report in 2017. And now it's happening. You can read my first "catch up" instalment about a great little adventure I shared with my pal Deano back in October of 2017 in : "Grwyne Fawr Reservoir".

Rhymney Meadows
Sometime in 2013/14 the online photo editing website I was using "lost" a number of my photos. I've been wanting to restore/rebuild many of these older blog posts dating from that era. Digging through thousands of images across multiple systems has been tough! But, I'm getting there slowly. Here's a little peek: "Rhymney Meadows".

Cajamarca to Guamo
I've been catching up with Curtis & Jenny Shaw as they continue their cycle journey through Central & South America. Two crazy kids having crazy, wonderful adventures. Warning! It's addictive reading! Check out their latest exploits: "Cajamarca to Guamo".



Thanks for stopping by. I'll see ya down the road.

Cheers! ~ cm
