It’s been a while, in fact almost a year since I posted. There are many reasons but suffice to say that my time has been limited by work, a young family, mild/moderate depression & sport (not necessarily in that order). My life became so hectic that something had to give and that was posting. Thankfully that wasn’t bike riding or reading, both of which sustained each other.

Today is my 1st commute since the clocks went forward, a landmark if only to herald oncoming Spring. It is extra special for me as it signals the end of my 1st winter commuting. However I’m up early heading into the dark, frigid morning, not because of my boyish excitement & enthusiasm.

A wake up call from an early visitor whose nutrition needs far outweighed that of my own rest was the culprit, hence the time to string a few words together.


Charlie-old, grumpy and assertive. Always reliable to wake you when you least need it...

So the birdsong calls and it’s time to head out to part 1 of #29 commute of the year.

    I’ts been a while say’s the master of the understatement. 8>) You know looking at my bike computer last week I noticed that the clock was correct for the first time in six months. Welcome back, and you know I’m sure, that riding your bike will make you a better person. It’s inevitable.

    Thanks for your latest post (#29)
    Different sides of the world but in the same boat…Our clocks have gone back and we’re heading into winter. Dealing with a young family and depression is a hard undertaking. Luckily my work commute is from the kitchen to Dancing Moose HQ in the workshop but even that can be an enormous challenge sometimes! Mind you, I love what I do and take immense satisfaction that I’m making a product that helps people undertake their own epic adventures whether it’s riding the length of their country or taking the kids on an overnighter in the local forest.
    Looking forward to more posts!
