This will be my last post on the blog.
Readers will have noticed that posts are becoming less and less frequent – this is partly down to changing life circumstances, and partly because I no longer have the desire to run a blog 🙂 It takes quite a lot of time to maintain and I was finding it more difficult to make that time available.
It’s been a good fun few years and I hope people have found some of the content interesting or useful in some way.
I still ride my bikes as much as I always have, but am shedding related technology and all the gubbins that goes with it. My old luddite tendencies have got the upper hand again. Riding naked so to speak. Strava has gone, Garmins are not far behind. TrainingPeaks: stick a fork in it. You can still see me around on BROL or the CityCyclingEdinburgh forum where I am still relatively active. My handle is nobrakes on both.
All in all, I am enjoying riding my bikes more, and not enjoying writing about bikes so much. That’s all good. My long term goal is to start riding audax and get quality time on the road by myself. Also to do more meditation and have less distractions, one of which is cycling related technology including this blog.
If you see some lanky bloke on a funny bike in the Borders on your travels, give me a shout 🙂
I’ll leave the blog up for others for the forseeable future. I think there’s some good info on it.
See you on the road!
