Tribe - Run For Love

The TRIBE are back on it, for their next big fundraiser and challenge and they're offering the chance to join them to help raise £1,000,000 to help provide support for victims of trafficking.

The first Run for Love was a 1000 mile run in 2013 across Eastern Europe from Odessa to Dubrovnik, undertaken by TRIBE co-founders Guy, Rob and Tom and 250 others.

This year they return, for an equally hardcore mission to Run and Ride with up to 1000 people from Sarajevo to London across a series of unsupported stages to complete the 2000km mission. The website is open to register your interest to participate, with registration opening officially on the 20th January 2017.

I've been subscribing for TRIBE bars for the past 6 months and have joined them for several Tempo runs, as well as a Trail run in August and the recent Freedom Runs, earlier this month. They are a great team and very supportive to all levels of runners, so I've no doubt that they will put this new challenge together well too.

I'm hoping to join them for either Stages 3 and / or 4 on the ridden sections of the challenge, but am waiting to check out the road guides and see what's achievable. For more info on the Run for Love 2 and to register your interest, please check out their website

Adventures in Girona: Winter Training Camp

It's taken a while to come down from the buzz of this camp, to try to put into words the boost which the experience has given me. To be fair, its probably gonna take a while longer for it all to sink in still, but I'll try to give you a slice of how it went, to tide you over until I have got my head back into gear and worked my way through all the footage.

In January, I was totally lucked out, to be given the opportunity to join the Adventure Syndicate ladies, in Spain for a week long Winter Training Camp, with Lee Craigie, Emily Chappell and coach John Hampshire, within the grounds of Girona Cycling. As well as being led by this incredible team, the group of ladies participating alongside me, were a force to be reckoned with.

Do you ever sign up for something, with anticipation that its going to be pretty cool, only to find that you have by some strange fate, found yourself in the middle of a complete game changer? This was my initial thought on day one and over the course o…

Calling All Ploggers

We're all finding ourselves surrounded by more and more brands and channels making us aware of the rising plastic pollution problems. Most of us have been trying to recycle for years, but there is still too much plastic ending up in landfill, or worse across our landscapes and in our seas. Our European cousins in Sweden are ahead of the game as usual with their efforts to clean up and have been combining their love of the outdoors, exercise and being generally good humans and cleaning up after each other.. Behold a new phenomenon - Plogging! Erik Ahlström started the Plogging movement, which is a combination of litter picking and jogging, when he moved to Stockholm from the Åre ski resort. He created the website Plogga to help organise events in 2016 and it has been growing internationally since. The Mindful Movement Club recently had a beach walk and clean up session at the beginning of summer near Shoeburyness, but interest in this proactive way to get exercise and clean our enviro…

Bike Week - Not just for Newbies

After months of staring at my bike and thinking about getting back to my commuter days, I finally bit the bullet yesterday and got my pedals turning again. Its been almost a year since my accident and its fair to say that I have not been feeling too cool about the prospect of dancing the wheels between the trucks and buses on route to work again. But I haven't wanted to lose the bike, or the choice, I just had a massive confidence drop in my ability to feel okay about getting back out there.
Truth is, I'm still not totally cool with it, but I am getting better. Following the old bike getting written off by the insurance company, I have been able to purchase a replacement Genesis Road bike (Ruby), but I still don't have the balls to use it. I don't want to be on the drops in traffic and this has led to me keeping it in storage, rather than putting it back out on the road. So I am dabbling again with my single speed PlugOne Charge (Old Blue) as its a familiar friend and…
