Bodmin to Padstow and back again

24 miles! I don’t know what I was thinking. I really wasn’t prepared for a walk of this distance. I parked in Bodmin on the Camel Trail and set off at 11.30am. 780 more words

May Day: the Children's Oss

When I have time away from the Trail getting back and riding just emphasises how privileged I am to live alongside this facility.

The vagaries of the weather obviously influence my riding experience and to say that we are lurching from one extreme to another might sound over the top but one minute I am languishing in hot weather on a bed of bluebells chilling out and the very next week It’s back to being all wrapped up and standing on the peddles to combat a Gale force wind. 287 more words

The Camel Trail

Yesterday I walked the Camel Trail. Twelve miles from Padstow to Bodmin. Flat, in the main, and easily done. However, the first mile took me forever. 493 more words

Weather set fair for the week

Missing my early morning rides at the moment but I guess the store roof takes precedence.

With the weather set fair for the week the roofers will be happy and I guess with a trip to Twickenham lined up for the final England game it would be naughty to bemoan my lack of riding time. 140 more words

The Trail: be aware of the Dog Badger

Well for all of five minutes we had a white world after a particularly heavy Hailstorm.

Maybe just as well we did not have this weather last week during Half Term, I have to say I made my way down to Padstow on several occasions and there was no need of lights as the mornings are drawing out.  179 more words

Bishops Wood on a frosty morning

With high pressure giving us a week of blue skies and sunshine, I decided to supplement my early morning rides by wandering upstream one afternoon. I was soon joined by a Jay (a very pretty bird) flitting just ahead of me, each time I came abreast he would fly a further hundred meters or so. 323 more words

Quiet but for a Dog Badger

Having returned from our monthly excursion to Berkshire over a snow-capped Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor yesterday I decided A – not to ride my lightweight and B – to set out on my ride a little later than usual. 242 more words
