Communications Data Bill
Another non-cycling one I’m afraid. You might have spotted an article on BBC online a few days back regarding the Communications Data Bill, which our beloved government have just published in draft form. This got all sorts of exciting debate going for a little while, as you might’ve guessed from the bill’s informal name of […]
The (admittedly somewhat less salubrious) elements of the web were briefly intrigued over the weekend with the rumour that German intelligence services had ‘cracked’ PGP. Whilst probably not of immediate concern to anyone not currently shifting large amounts of money out of Greece, there’s clearly a twinge of unease that the common man’s encryption method […]
You (may) have spotted that this site has changed from Tumblr to WordPress. There were several reasons for this, not least my inability to stop tinkering with things. Anyway, we’re here now and already settling in. Finding the comfy spots on the sofa; stuff like that. Please bear with me whilst I sort out layout, […]
The Old Crown Challenge and More Bikes!
Like all good Googling sessions, I found this whilst searching for something completely different.

There was sunshine, cake, lots of children, a huge variety of bikes and a general carnival atmosphere to the whole thing. It didn’t feel like a protest, it […]
Thoughts on a free country(side)
You poor sods down south. Look out of the window and find a hill (if you happen to live in south-east England, use your imagination). Found one? Great. Can you walk up it? I’m not thinking about your actual ability to haul that cornish pasty you had for lunch up the slopes, but more from […]
Falkirk to Glasgow, via Loch Lomond
Loitering via Loch Arklet, just before starting the climb over to Inversnaid and Loch Lomond. Satisfying ride yesterday. Not quite feeling up to the Nippie Sweetie audax, but also having a day spare, I decided to trundle round one of the rides from ‘Bike Scotland – Book One’, which had been sitting unloved since Christmas.
