Boy what a week it’s been! Hitchin was the venue for our second successful Waterstone’s book signing on Saturday 3rd September with the bike outside pointing the way to the books. Then Thursday evening saw our first slideshow presentation with the books and a very warm reception at David’s Bookshop in Letchworth. A good write-up […]
After our last bike event a few weeks ago, when we supported the poorly attended ‘Skylark Bike + Truck + Rock festival’, this past Sunday saw our fortunes transformed from famine to feast at this years ‘Herts Bikefest’. Organised by Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue and taking place in our home-town of Stevenage, the event has […]
A wet Saturday morning in St Albans. Maggie and I ducked into Waterstone’s to get out of the rain that had eased to a steady downpour. One of my favourite bookshops, so the rain wasn’t that much of an excuse. There was a guy sat at a table signing books. He was nobody famous and his book […]
Saturday 6th August: D-Day for Adventures in Yellow when the 2 books were finally to be set loose into the big wide world. A bookstore launch seemed obvious but we’d been advised that this weekend, at the start of the summer hols, might be a bit quiet so we confidently set out for the ‘Skylark […]

Thanks to Don & Debbie Prescott, Tom & Jan Hunter (another Pan-Americaner) and the Gold Wing crowd – Phil, Scott & Lynette. In this time ‘Ride […]
The boat arrived in Sitka in pouring rain and it more or less stayed like this for the next 4 days of our visit there. The journey down the Inside Passage had been calm but uneventful, the ferry sailing between banks of ominous dark pine clad coastline topped with low clouds so we couldn’t see […]
A few days later and we are on dirt roads again, this time riding the ‘Top of the World’ Highway from Tok in Alaska to Dawson City in Yukon, Canada. It is dry and the going is fairly easy but there are sections running by a river creek that look like they could be well […]
