The Mega

Day 204 - photo a day 2017

Sun 23 July 2017

Well the forecast for today was quite heavy rain. There has been no rain and it's been a nice day. I decided to head out to Nant but I drove up with the Mega. It feels weird to ride such a light bike! Legs held up OK but got tired …

Day 203 - photo a day 2017

Sat 22 July 2017

A bit of a different view of Nant-y-moch, one that I've not seen for a little while. This one is from the top of the Pencerrig climb and the descent is grassy and tussocky, it's pretty sketchy trying not to head over the bars! Was a great ride and the …

Fri 21 July 2017

Pretty wet and windy day today. I went down to town at ~10pm to give Elysia a lift home from work and the sky looked interesting so we went for a look from the seafront.

Old bench

Day 201 - photo a day 2017

Thu 20 July 2017

I went to Tre-ddol/Artist's valley this evening. The trails were running great, even if I did try to go over the bars 3 times! I think that this bench must have been there for quite a long time as the view from it now is just overgrowth and trees …

Red Dragon book

Day 199 - photo a day 2017

Tue 18 July 2017

This is my most recent purchase in books to read. I've watched all of the films and the series so I thought that it's probably time to read the books.

Dentist plan bill estimate

Day 198 - photo a day 2017

Mon 17 July 2017

I last quite a lot of sleep this morning due to waking up with bad toothache. It was bad enough that it finally made go to the dentist, a private dentist due to a lack of availability at NHS dentists here. In the end I went for Portland Street dentist …

Viewranger Skyline overlay

Day 197 - photo a day 2017

Sun 16 July 2017

Well, I did a load of trail work today, which my legs were less than impressed about. I couldn't really think of much to photo but then I remembered that I hadn't taken a photo using the Viewranger Skyline feature. It takes your position and direction you're facing and overlays …

Digging hoe

Day 196 - photo a day 2017

Sat 15 July 2017

I spent most of today working on Gamebuildr, good progress made. I also popped to Charlies Stores. I bought myself a digging hoe as I really like them as a trail tool. So here it is!

Old trail

Day 195 - photo a day 2017

Fri 14 July 2017

A while ago I went for a wander through the woods that toboggan is in and found an old trail. Today I finally got round to starting to bring it back to life and, hopefully, build a top section into it. It seems that someone else has had a similar …

Fixed spinning wheel

Day 194 - photo a day 2017

Thu 13 July 2017

Nothing exciting today. I fixed the spinning wheel a couple of days ago. Seems that the orifice shouldn't turn independently to the flyer so I strung them together. It's held up and Elysia has managed to start spinning!

River at bottom of Talybont woods

Day 193 - photo a day 2017

Wed 12 July 2017

This evening I decided to do something that I've been meaning to do for ages. I went to Talybont woods. I'd only been once before and that was years ago, I could vaguely remember the main trail there and I knew that there had been some more built recently. I …

Welsh course CD

Day 192 - photo a day 2017

Tue 11 July 2017

This week at work I have a week of intensive Welsh as a part of a Welsh at Work programme. So far it's been pretty good although working until 5pm every day feels a bit odd. I think that after a week of this I'm going to be feeling pretty …

Scrambled tofu

Day 191 - photo a day 2017

Mon 10 July 2017

It's not very exciting but something that I've been wanting to try for a while. Scrambled tofu using this recipe. It tastes pretty good and I shall be making it again although probably not with that exact recipe.

Looking out from Angler's Retreat

Day 190 - photo a day 2017

Sun 09 July 2017

Legs weren't feeling great so I decided to go out on my bike for an easy one. That somehow changed very rapidly into a bit of a bigger ride than I had planned and using eco mode on the bike. In the end I rode up to Angler's Retreat via …
