A lost love

On February 7, 2018, Posted by , In Cycling,Eat, Sleep, Cycle,Round-Britain,Touring, With 4 Comments

What happens when an adventure gets in the way of a relationship? Seven years ago I left London and a boyfriend to cycle around the coast of Britain. What might have happened had I not gone? We met four months before I was due to leave, both of us working…

The danger of delete

On January 4, 2018, Posted by , In Eat, Sleep, Cycle,Writing, With 2 Comments

When I migrated this website to its new operating platform, I ditched a large number of my old blog posts. They were either outdated, irrelevant or simply badly written. Given that I was promoting myself as a writer, it would be foolish to put anything out that I was less than happy…

Reflections on being an author

On March 20, 2016, Posted by , In Eat, Sleep, Cycle,Writing, With 9 Comments

It’s a year since I became an author, the culmination of three years of hard work putting pen to paper (well, fingertips to keyboard) and scraping together the story of my 4000 mile bike ride around the coast of Britain. I wrote a couple of blogs about the writing process…

Lake District first edit

On March 24, 2012, Posted by , In Cycling,Eat, Sleep, Cycle,Round-Britain,Writing, With No Comments

I took a trip up to the Lake District to get away from the city while I started to write my book. If it’s good enough for Wordsworth, it’s good enough for Hughes. The Lake District is absolutely stunning, and I took the opportunity to try out my new camera,…

Lake District revisited

On March 24, 2012, Posted by , In Cycling,Eat, Sleep, Cycle,Round-Britain,Writing, With No Comments

The time has come to remove myself from the routine of daily life and begin to turn my cycle trip blog into a book. A writing holiday is in order, to the Lake District. Ten days full of promise and hopefully a book at the end. Perhaps some Wordsworth inspiration…
