Riding over the Golden Gate Bridge. Again. #Zartusacan 07

One of the “must dos” on our list for this trip was to spend a little bit of time in San Francisco. We had 36 hours in the city when we were on our Eagle Rider tour a couple of years ago and felt like we had so much more to see and do, so

An Empty Honey Jar in the Bear Safe. #Zartusacan 06

I think it’s fair to say that we put off the camping thing for the first week of our Zartusacan. It’s not that we didn’t want to or didn’t intend to camp instead of paying for motels and hotels every night, but rather that we haven’t done it for years and were somewhat dreading the amount

Gravel, Railroads and the Spouting Horn. #Zartusacan 05

I’m not intending to write a blog post for every single day of this trip, but this particular one – Saturday 7 May – was particularly eventful (for all the right reasons, don’t worry) so I decided it was worth it. It all started pretty bog standard, really. We headed south on the I5, a

Washington State and into Oregon. #Zartusacan 03

Our “plan”, if you can call it that, was always to use highway 101 as our route down the west coast of the USA. It pretty much hugs the coastline through Washington State, Oregon and California, providing Pacific coast views and plenty of amazing scenery. We rode a bit of it a couple of years

A Day Ride to Cape Flattery. #Zartusacan 02

We booked two nights in Port Angeles with the intention of using the day in the middle to explore Olympic National Park, an area of mountains, lakes and forest in the north west of the USA that we had heard only good things about. We could see the snow-capped mountains of hurricane ridge from our

Currently Loving: April 2016

Wow this year is going FAST! It could do with slowing down a little to be honest; I hope the next three months don’t go as quickly as the last three. But anyway, it might be a week late but welcome to my latest Currently Loving post, an opportunity for me to present ten of

Riding to the Sea. For the Journey.

It’s a few weeks ago now that we had an entire day spare just to head somewhere on the motorbikes just to enjoy the ride. For me it was also an opportunity to try out two new things – the fab new topbox I got from LincsGeek for Christmas and a great new travel shirt

A Day Hike on Mam Tor

You all know by now that I like nothing more than being able to take a day off work and heading off into the countryside for a day hike. Having worked a number of Saturdays recently, and missing out on much needed time outdoors as a result, last week I was able to take Wednesday

Sunday Walk, Mam Tor, Gardening | Weekly Vlog 18

New vlog time – now being uploaded on a Monday instead of Sunday. Hope that’s ok! This week I went for a walk on a lovely sunny Sunday morning, did a day hike up Mam Tor in the Peak District, answered a couple of #AskSplodz questions and did a teeny bit of gardening.  I thought

New Triumph, Carrot Soup, Awesome Sky | Weekly Vlog 17

Welcome to my new schedule! After having a bit of a mare with my video files on Sunday morning I decided the best thing would be for me to go out and enjoy the sunshine for a couple of hours rather than stay inside and edit my vlog. So you’re getting the new weekly vlog
