Mountain biking in the Troodos Mountains

Mountain biking in the Troodos Mountains

For all the cycling we’ve done, neither of us had ever tried mountain biking. So last week, when we were in Cyprus for a last bit of summer sun, we decided to take a day off from relaxing and headed into the Troodos Mountains to give it a go.

Cycling London to Paris: the French part

Cycling London to Paris: the French part

Cycling from Le Havre to Paris we enjoyed perfect cycle lanes, quiet roads and fresh baguettes to fuel us on. We ended at the Eiffel Tower having enjoyed one of the nicest bike routes we’ve ever done.

Cycling London to Paris: the English part

Cycling London to Paris: the English part

London to Paris, everybody does it differently. Some people race it in 24 hours, for others it is the challenge of a lifetime and they raise thousands for charity. We were taking a more leisurely place to enjoy the views and highlights of the route.

Pedalling about down under: a few days on Rottnest Island

Pedalling about down under: a few days on Rottnest Island

When the invite arrived for my friend’s wedding in Perth this Easter it didn’t take long for us to accept. But before the wedding there was time for a hen party on Rottnest Island and a bit of cycling too.

Pedalling About

We're Paddy and Laura. From May 2011 to July 2012 we cycled 21,000km around South America. Now, we're back in London doing the daily commute by bike, touring around the UK when we can and dreaming of where else we might go with our bikes.
