Pleasing organisation. Todd on the left, Jos in the middle, and Allegra on the right.

A third hike to Alamere Falls, and still worth it. A lovely little hop from the city, and you find yourself walking along the coast with views as far as the city and Point Reyes. Naturally, the jewel in the crown are the falls that […]

Point Reyes has the strange ability to make me feel like I am ‘home’ – there is something deeply primal about it, and in a vaguely spiritual way reminds me of the East Angle coast, Wales and Scotland. It’s a little gem of solitude, just […]

Blurry trip from the airport

After 18 months away from Asia, I finally headed back. Back in the saddle!

Tony, one of my best Greek friends, got married to one of the best ladies I have had the pleasure of meeting, Miss P. Naturally, I flew in to make sure she didn’t change her mind, and had an awesome weekend catching up with old […]

I got the call last week to join a crew of people on the annual Color Run, held at Candlestick Park … what is that, I hear you say? It’s a fun run, where you get absolutely pelted with paint, every 1000m, ending up in […]

Palm Springs, located just over one hundred miles from LA, is a traditional playground for the stars of Hollywood. Offering seclusion and a balmy winter climate, it became fashionable after the war, and the well-healed commissions allowed architectural modernists to flourish in the desert. I […]

I had a last-minute invite from Maartin & Marieke to join them with their brother Kees in a cabin up in the woods. Just the job to escape the city. A great day of hiking, more than a few beers and hilarious laughter, and the […]

Go too quickly, and you might miss this crucial right-hander

Downieville lives in mountain biking folklore as home to some of the best riding on the West Coast. Site of the famous Downieville Classic bike race, it’s the spiritual centre of ‘all-mountain riding’; combining cross-country and downhill disciplines into one. Booking at the last possible […]

The sense of perspective in this space is wonderfully warped

Taking advantage of the extended┬áMemorial Day weekend, I tacked on an extra day and winged it away from the West Coast for a weekend in New York City. What a place; I had visited in my early twenties, but it makes a major difference when […]
