I spent a great weekend recently in Porlock, Somerset. A group of us used it as a base for two days cycling on Exmoor and south east of Minehead. This is a short post to highlight where we stayed.
Cycling and mountain biking blog from the perspective of an older cyclist. I'm just not into lycra, OK?
I’ve been running more and more over the last two years and it’s really helped my cycling fitness. Here’s why I think it has helped me.
Normally, I set myself a cycling target for the year. A specific mileage. It motivates me to cycle more often. However, this year, I’m setting cycling and running targets.
I read a post about The Role for Surfacing in Rural Areas on the As Easy As Riding A Bike blog. In the article, a better surface for the Downs Link trail is advocated based on its use as a utility route rather than a leisure route. I’m against this. My preference is to keep the route as it is now.
At the end of last year, and for the start of 2015, I had a quiet period when I didn’t cycle as much as normal. It’s the middle of the year now and I’m happy to say that my cycling mojo is back!
