One from the vaults: Evoking fond memories

It’s most unlikely I’ll be doing my hostess with the mostest during this Festive Season. Instead, I’ll have to dive back into Christmas periods past such as this one in 2011.  If I’m not spending time out on the bike, there’s no where else… Continue Reading “One from the vaults: Evoking fond memories”

One from the vaults: My work here is done!

We’re heading back to September 2015 and a project dear to my heart which occupied much of that year. After I had edited a friend’s book, I (foolishly) offered to collect as many of the riders’ autographs in one copy so that it might… Continue Reading “One from the vaults: My work here is done!”

Postcard from Giro 2018: part II

I’ll be honest, it’s at this point our Giro d’Italia adventure rather went off the rails. We’d enjoyed a fabulously sunny few hours in Ljubljana and on our return drive to Peschiera, near Lake Garda. Chosen specifically because it was about a 30 minute… Continue Reading “Postcard from Giro 2018: part II”

Postcard from Giro 2018: part I

We kicked off our Giro adverture in NE Italy, staying in Pordenone, which has a beautiful Old Town surrounded by a river and plenty of greenery. It’s a place and area we both know well as my beloved has clients here and I have a… Continue Reading “Postcard from Giro 2018: part I”
