From coastal rides around the Isle of Wight to 3000 kilometre trans-European bike tours... below you will find links to the diverse range of beautiful and interesting cycling adventures that I have completed to date...

  • #5MaratonasChallenge — A self-made challenge to ride the five historic routes of the Maratona dles Dolomites over five consecutive days. 873 kilometres. 28,300 metres of climbing. A big week.
  • #7Countries7Passes — From Denmark to Andorra, via the high mountain passes of the Alps, Dolomites and Pyrenees. An incredible bicycle touring adventure.
  • #BlackForest400 — 400 miles from Northern France to Germany's Black Forest. Non-stop and self-supported. A solo adventure. My longest ride to date.
  • #CelticCrossTrail — From Inverness to the Isle of Wight; taking in the Scottish Highlands, Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way, and the mountains of Wales. Bikepacking at its best.
  • #CoastsandCols — Across Northern Spain, the Pyrenees, and then up the entire West Coast of France. This was a bikepacking adventure to remember.
  • #RoadsFromRome — From Tuscany to the Dolomites and Alps; then onwards to the Black Forest, The Netherlands, and finally back to the UK. The long road home from Rome. 
  • #Festive500 — 500 kilometres (or miles) between Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve. The Festive 500 is a magical and often challenging series of festive bike rides.
  • HERO Dolomites Südtirol — Branded the toughest mountain bike race in the world. This Italian race provided challenge and reward in equal measure.
  • St. Boniface Down Mavic Everesting — Climbing the height of Everest in one ride, on one climb. This mammoth hill repeat session was a hard day in the saddle, but for a worthy cause.
  • TorTour Cyclocross Summer — Three days. Three stages. Three chances to explore the gravel roads in the beautiful Lucerne region of Switzerland. A lung bursting challenge.
  • XPDTN3 Dolomites — Bikepacking through the highest peaks in the Italian Dolomites. Remote alpine huts, wall-like gradients, and plenty of gelato.
