With the nights at their longest and winter unrelenting its grip on the weather it’s always important to be safe when you’re out on your bike. Be seen and you will be safe, well hopefully. One thing you can guarantee is that with this bike light you will certainly be seen, probably from over a mile away! It really is that powerful.

In the past I have always elected to purchase cheaper bike lights off eBay or from my local bike shop. However I often found that battery life wasn’t very good, they didn’t stand up to harsher weather, and often the mounts were cheap meaning that the light would fall off and smash on the ground. Fed up with this problem of always having an unsatisfactory bicycle light I got the Moon XP1500 from Argos who also sell a wide range of bicycles. Now this is an expensive light, definitely…

Thorn Club Tour parked up for the nightNon-touring cycling friends often ask me: ‘What’s the best touring bicycle you can buy?’ In many respects, it’s a hard question to answer as the
choice of bike hinges on so many factors, not least the kind of journeys you are planning to undertake. In many cases, the bike in your garage or shed will do.

For the purposes of this post, though, I will focus on the ‘dedicated’ touring cycle, which can be loosely categorised as ‘traditional touring cycles’, ‘expedition touring cycles’ and ‘others’ – including folding bicycles for touring. Not intended to be a definitive list, it does feature models that are available for purchase in the UK.

I thought it was about time I updated this post as it it generates so much traffic on this site. So, I’ve had another look at the touring bike market in the UK with a couple of new names providing frames and bikes to…

A bicycle does get you there and more… And there is always the thin edge of danger to
keep you alert and comfortably apprehensive. Dogs become dogs
again and snap at your raincoat; potholes become personal.
And getting there is all the fun.

Dun Briste, Downpatrick head Co. Mayo.

I have often driven through Ballycastle Co Mayo and looked out at this magnificent sea stack but never had the time to go and see it so the other day I decided it was time.  Its called Dun Briste, which means broken fort.  I’m not sure if its got anything to do with the promintory fort on the cliffs themselves.  Its estimated to be 50 meters in height and stands 80 meters off shore.

The light on that day wasn’t great and it was blowing a gale on shore so I was out early this morning (5 am!) and the light was beautiful.  The location is so spectacular but if you suffer from vertigo it might be a little nerve racking!  This was one of the first shots I took, I have a couple of others that I will process and put up in…
