Full throttle hipster!

I’ve only gone and done it. Not content with building up a Monster Cross bike with tan tyres – oh no, that’s not far enough down the hipster rabbit hole is it? I had to take that final step and turn my new bike into the mostest hipstery hip bike build in history! That’s right, Read More

A little beerpacking nano-adventure

Me and Pete have been trying to escape to the hills for an overnighter for a while now with various dates almost happening but then not and then almost happening again etc… you get the idea.

1st Bivi of 2015

1st bivi of 2015 – Val Ferret, Italy.
