Mum’s flapjacks = rocket fuel

Last year when we cycled the LEJOG we put my Mum in charge of the re-fuelling goodies we would carry with us and she did us proud with some AMAZING flapjacks. We find any excuse to get Mum baking her super duper high energy flapjacks, and trust me – you can’t get any better than … Continue reading

Business cards arrived!

Business cards arrived!

When we cycled the LEJOG last year, we met so many wonderful people along the way who were interested in what we were doing.  We would tell people the website address, but one wrong letter and they would never find us on the internet! This year, I’m conscious I don’t lose out on interest throughout … Continue reading

RoundtheEdge goes social @cyclebybicycle

I saw my best friend Roxy a couple of days ago and we began discussing how to raise the profile of both the ride and my fundraising attempts for CCS Adoption in Bristol.

HoLocks reunited – well sort of!

HoLocks reunited – well sort of!

Dad and I have been plodding away looking at the logistical side of the ride; which touring bikes to buy,  clockwise or anti-clockwise around the coast, where / when do we start, how many miles per day, etc etc.  We were nearly decided on a bike (Ridgeback Ultra Galaxy), decided to go anti-clockwise, picked to … Continue reading

One becomes two!

One becomes two!

When first musing about cycling the coast of Great Britain I imagined it would just be me, my bike and a tent.  After discussing the idea with Gavin he understandably thought it would be too dangerous for me to cycle alone for three months.  I did try to negotiate, but at the end of the … Continue reading

In the beginning…

So it begins…  A couple of months ago I handed in my notice at work and realised that I needed a break. On handing in said notice, I was tempted in to staying with the company for a little while longer, covering for a colleague who has gone on leave for three months.  This time … Continue reading
