Kidical Mass Nottingham – fourth ride

The Sunday before last was the fourth Kidical Mass Nottingham ride. At the beginning of this year, the ride was only a concept in my mind but through planning, organisation and promotion, I rolled it out and brought together such a successful and growing group ride. This 4th ride was slightly different as the we […]

Kidical Mass Nottingham – second ride

On the Sunday 18th June it was the second Kidical Mass Nottingham!

With […]

Nottinghamshire Pride 2022

A few weekends ago was Nottinghamshire Pride.  I had such a brilliant and action packed weekend and I wanted to write about it here.  It was my first one as a resident of Nottingham. The fact I could go back to my home comforts for a bit of a rest, to recharge myself and my […]
