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.

Font/Capsule


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.

ESCAPE


Living in London, with family in The Frozen North and a German sweetheart means Christmas for me becomes a kind frantic two-week mobilisation of matériel and stocking fillers. This great new piece from Forestbound (I'm a longtime lurker over there) sums up this feeling of perpetual motion brought on by muiltiple multi-modal international journeys pretty darn well. Maybe not quite big enough to carry everybody's presents AND my Christmas knitwear, it's ideal for a weekend getaway at the very least. Needless to say I'm really into it. Have a good root through the full collection while you're over there.

Oh, and I'm off for the holidays now... have a great Christmas and see you in 2015!

Trail Hunting In Epping Forest


I'm not intending doing lots of cross-posting between here and my new job, but this one is nicely in line with Pastoral Review: a little while ago I hit the trails in Epping Forest to test out my new 'cross bike and did a write up for Kinoko. Take a peek at the full report here.
