Adventures with children

Adventures with children

Much like starting a proper job, people often say having children is a major obstacle to regular adventure. That might be true if you plan on spending every weekend ice-climbing in the Himalayas (although I’m sure are are those who make this work). But in other ways, having children has a positive impact on getting you outside more. You just need to realign your expectations of what’s possible to make having adventures with children a reality. Why should I bother?…

How to clean your bike

How to clean your bike

Riding your bike makes you happier. And you should do things that make you happy, right? That means taking every opportunity for a two-wheeled adventure: your commute; nipping out for a pint of milk; or even just a gentle Sunday morning pootle with the family. But one thing many people forget to do as they ride more is clean their bike! It’s hardly the most exciting job, but even if you only go out in fair weather, the chain soon picks…

Commuting: Better By Bike

Commuting: Better By Bike

I’ve spoken before about the merits of a folding bike to inject some adventure into your working day (Commuting). With Blue Monday just around the corner, the colder weather and the temptation to ditch the new year’s resolutions becoming greater, now’s the time to prioritise regular time outside. I love my Brompton and would recommend them to anyone but appreciate the cost can be eye-watering, particularly if you get carried away with the options list. The good people at Brompton…

Commuting

Commuting

For many people, commuting is the worst part of their day. Unreliable trains, heavy traffic, the British weather – all these can increase stress levels and put us in the worst of moods before the working day has even begun. There is, however, a secret movement out there. A group of people who arrive at work with a smile on their faces. For this group, the commute is an adventure – something to look forward to and, even better, something you get to…
