Bikepacking continued: into the Pyrenees vol. 2

This is the third and final part of our bikepacking delights trip from September 2022; part one, part two. The next morning saw us up a little later than expected, rising from our cosy warm bed to a delightful porridge. Ever accommodating, Mireille let us use the hose to clean our filthy bikes that we…

Bikepacking continued: into the Pyrenees vol. 1

The view out of our window this morning was one of damp and dreariness. Heavy wetness saturated the air, and indeed the forecast had not been wrong. We ate our porridge clinging to faint hopes that it wouldn’t be as bad as it looked.. It never is, right ?!  Or, as Sean Kelly would have put…

Gravel Gran Canaria: Locura

Next up in gravel Gran Canaria, this time Constantin off on a solo exploit, into the heat and blossoming unseasonal green October we had in 2022. The plan was ambitious, totalling more than 6500m climbing, and taking in- amongst other exploration- the best gravel road on Gran Canaria: Tirma. More on that later.. !  I got to share…

Thus in this feature we will concentrate on one that couldn’t be more contrasting in its allure.  The Chira trail is a 12km gravel section of the…

Epic Gran Canaria 2022

The Epic Gran Canaria has wrapped up for another year.. ! It was a very brief break since the previous edition, the 2021 race running in October after a covid-related postponement from it’s usual early season date.   The event format remained exactly the same as that most recent edition, however this time I wouldn’t be taking to…

Gravel Gran Canaria: The ‘GraVotT’

There is a road on this island that strikes fear into the heart of most any cyclist who has faced the beast, and is shrouded in an aura of reverence and apprehension for all those who have yet to answer the call.   The  Valley of the Tears. The ‘VOTT’. El Valle de los Lagrimas. Das…

Epic Gran Canaria Stage 2

Stage 2 started with the same sunrise ride to the start as yesterday, but this  time with Flo and Ewa for company; today my favourite support would be out on the road ❤️❤️❤️  Soaking up the atmosphere at the start among friends new and old makes these events worth returning to every time, however, on this day there really isn’t…
