Rainbow zebra

Manchester, Leicester Prides.

Dear Diary, I wrote this piece and forgot to publish it.  I had some other more pressing things on.  I just checked through my drafts and here was the article I had written a few months ago. I suppose the benefit of publishing it now is that as I re-read this and voice record it […]

National Funeral for the Unknown Cyclist

Yesterday I attended the National Funeral for the Unknown Cyclist and the first UK pedal on Parliament organised by group Stop Killing Cyclists. It has been in my calendar for months and months.  I really wanted to go but owing to some important matters at home, I nearly didn’t attend.  I am pleased I nipped down […]

Time-lapse – Cycled from Wellingborough to Oxford

 On Sunday 2nd September I cycled from Wellingborough to Oxford. I’ve made this journey back in 2015 when I visited Giles Gear for his Birthday.  Back then I used some country roads getting out of Northampton and then hit the A43.  I know, from experience, that if I were to take the whole left […]

Leeds and Wellingborough Prides

A week and a bit ago I wanted to go somewhere new.  I do enjoy Gay Pride events.  Therefore I wanted to mix the two so I scrolled through a website which listed all of the year’s Pride events in a big table to see if anytook my fancy.  Leeds caught my attention but I […]

The Crown Court

[WARNING: the subject matter of this post is not suitable for children] Some of the facts I mention below may have blurred slightly. I watched the case for three consecutive days without making a note, as I don’t think it is allowed, unless permission from the judge is granted beforehand. I am writing this post […]

Anti-Trump protest

I wanted to share some photos on here.  On Friday 13th July 2018, I attended the anti-Trump protest in London.  As well as this sharing of my photos on my website, I felt compelled to write about it and I am not entirely sure why. As per usual, I cycled from my home to Wellingborough […]

Cycled 68 miles from Wellingborough to Nottingham

 I haven’t posted here on my website for so long.  Crryyyy.  Why?  I don’t know.  Well, I do.  I have been doing things.  Ok, that sounds loose.  And the other reason is that I always think that producing anything takes so long.  Imagine the editing and editing and editing that goes into producing anything […]

Hello sunshine, hello close pass

The sun is finally here. I have been waiting for such a long time for better weather. Cycling in the wind, rain, sleet or snow is not the best. But I don’t let it put me off. The sun is now beating down, with clear blue skies, and no wind and it makes me feel […]

Guilty – drink driver sentenced

A few weeks ago, I went and watched my first ever magistrates’ court case. Strangely, I have watched parts of some more considerable cases at the Royal Courts of Justice, but I have never attended my local courts; neither the magistrates’ or crown. My interest in local justice was piqued when I had to call […]

Police response to close pass

On Wednesday 7th February 2018, I received a call back from the control room of Northamptonshire Police about a close pass I reported on 2nd February.  I answered the call feeling optimistic and hopeful; I’ve reported a few instances of close passes over the years and slowly but surely the responses seemed to be getting […]
