How to write a cycling book.

In the beginning I suppose I can trace things back to mid 1970's north-west England for the beginnings of this story. Once into 2nd year of secondary school at Penketh High I was placed into a top grade class for English. Our teacher was an old RAF fighter pilot known affectionately as "Danny Clamp" (Mr Daniels), a guy that didn't tolerate messing and under achievers. The "Clamp" was a procedure he used in which he used to clamp his thumb and forefinger onto an unsuspecting victim's cheek or ear if they stepped out of line. [...]

Certainly once you get into the 400 km distances [...]

It has been relatively quite on this website for the cycling season just gone but that does not mean that we were lazy. Actually the opposite was true. We were working on a joint project that we will be bringing you news of early in Spring of next year so please bear with us. We were, however on our bikes a lot this year, in fact probably more so that usual. Here are some personal photos that are my favourite from the year of cycling that has just past. Enjoy! [...]

Tales from the Canal Bank

Posted: November 29, 2016 · By: Dave Elton · Comments: 0

The Tralee Ship Canal-Walk-Cycle-Jog As winter sets in the urge to get out and about on either the bike or into the mountains becomes a bit more of a chore. The cold weather be it fog, ice, snow, wind and rain are all conditions that can persuade even the hardiest of cyclist or walker to stay by the fire side for the duration of the winter months and re-appear in the spring. Although there is absolutely nothing wrong in that, it does seem a shame to lose the fitness levels that we may have gained from an adventure packed summer of cycling, [...]
