It's quite possible that I have too many bikes. But how many is too many?
I love touring. I haven't done enough, but in a fit of optimism decided to make a page dedicated to write ups of future tours.
Back in 2007, while trawling the CTC forum's classified section for second hand touring bikes, my Dad stumbled across something a bit special. In British racing green.
Yesterday, I went on my first ride with Grass Up the Middle CC. All you really need to know about this club is that it's about riding at speeds that encourage good chat, on quiet country roads. On lanes where there's hardly any traffic. Lanes where the grass gets a chance to grow "up the middle".
Last year I spent a week on Knoydart, a peninsula on the west coast of Scotland that's inaccessible by road. It's one of the most remote inhabited parts of the Scottish mainland, and the scenery is right up my street. This week I went back with the bike.
