Launched amid a certain amount of fanfare a couple of weeks ago, is 'a resource and community for travelling cyclists to help plan, prepare for and share your touring adventures'. Well it sure is a fine looking website, and definitely worth checking out if you're in need of some vicarious adventure or cozy encouragement to plan your own trip. Big-league contributions come from Al '#microadventure' Humphreys and Jack 'The Cycle Show' Thurston.


35mm [III]

I'm lucky when 50% of the exposures on my analogue film rolls actually get processed, mostly taking pictures on gloomy lanes. The guy at Snappy Snaps today very kindly said that some of these were atmospheric. All taken within the last 6 weeks or so, this roll covers trips to Fontainebleau, Munich & Somerset, as well as a solo Kent ride and yesterday's Essex pootle with the boys.

Taken on a FujiFilm disposable.


Wet Weekend

Took a long weekend to the country, expertly arranged by Mrs PR (thanks Jules x). As you'd expect for a holiday in Britain in February we got a soaking on a couple of occasions, but there was lots to like: multi-modal bike-train-bike journeys, cottage down dirt track, log fire, country pubs, ale, killer landscape, stars, golden hour stroll, overwhelming quaintness and, of course, good company.

BTW we were in Wedmore/Cheddar Gorge in Somerset, & credit for the pic of me obvs goes to the missus.


Down Trousers

Down trousers; like the jackets but for your legs. I'm predicting they're going to be bigggg. See Ficouture (pictured), Nanga White Label, PHDesigns & Snow Peak AW15.


Bunyan Velo 5

Vicarious bicycle adventures don't come much better than those describes in the (digital) pages of Bunyan Velo. If you've not come across this before, it's a must-read for anyone with even a vague interest in cycle touring, S24H's, bikepacking, &c.

I spent months after reading the last issue researching wild camping spots on OS maps and the fill-ratings of 3-season sleeping bags, and with Spring just around the corner now's the time to get
back on it...

Issue 5 is out now.



Took a work trip to Paris for an afternoon bouldering at Fontainebleau and a poke round the Capsule menswear show in the city. A few brands caught my eye there; AW15 collections by Snow Peak, OrslowArpenteur are looking pretty strong. More stuff here.


35mm (II)

This is the best of the second roll of 35mm I've taken on Mrs PR's Olympus Trip. Mostly from over the Christmas break with my folks, & featuring assorted beaucolia. Hope you had a great festive period, and all best for 2015.
