The story of my experience on the 2018 French Divide, a 2267 km (1408 miles) adventure across the rural interior of France on a bikepacking adventure with 126 other riders. After failing to finish the year before, this was a final attempt for me. The ride fulfilled all my hopes and successful completion was the realisation of a long-held dream.

Cycling coast to coast for 134 miles across Scotland with my two sons in our first ever long-distance bike ride together on the John Muir Way. The terrain is a mixture of single track, disused railway, coastal walkways, canal tow paths and winding urban routes through villages and our capital Edinburgh. The diversity of terrain, landscape and scenery makes for an amazing ride.

Is there anything more annoying than a clicky or skipping rear derailleur? No, I don't think so.

An unexpectedly gruelling bikepacking adventure going North to South on the Hebridean Way. 225 miles in total. In two and half days. In bad weather. Carrying all my kit to wild camp. Against the prevailing winds. And against the clock to catch the ferry home.
