Before I gave birth to my small fleet of mini cyclists I never used to plan, I just let things happen. I would be cooking away (I used to be a cook) or writing away (I used to write more than I do now) when I’d suddenly just fancy heading off on my bike with […]

A new year with a new-ish baby on a not-so-new trike-bike. (Plus bike talk Olympia London 25th January 2014).
PS: I forgot to say I’ll be giving a bike talk next weekend at The Adventure Travel Show at Olympia in London Saturday 25th January 2014 at 15.30-16.00 in the Adventure Auditorium. To buy tickets for £6 (saving £4 off the door price) just quote ‘JOSIE DEW’ when buying online at www.adventureshow.com or when calling: […]
The third bus is born (see comments on last post ‘Just say no to school and yes to sunny cycles to the sea’ to see why it’s a bus) – otherwise known as little Jack Frank Appleton, a young apprentice for Gary (the builder). I was going to write more but time is limited to […]
Unlike last summer this summer unusually turned into a summer – at least for a while – day after day of hot, cloudless, steamy days. Good timing for those children at private schools as they could be outside to enjoy the week after week of sunshine, but bad timing for those still stuck in the […]
NEWS JUST IN!: CHICHESTER CYCLING FESTIVAL BIKE TALK IN JUNE. And Bikes and more bikes – in various shapes and sizes.
If anyone finds themselves at a loose end in Chichester (nice cathedral!) on the evening of 20th June and you fancy coming to say hello to me and pinch my tyres and feel the bounce of my saddle I’ll be giving a CYCLING AROUND THE WORLD AND CYCLING WITH OFFSPRING BIKE TALK. It’s taking place […]
A big thank you to all those who came and supported my Around the World by Bicycle Talk which I gave in the local village hall to raise money for Molly’s primary school. So thank you to all the locals who came and especially thank you to those who came from quite far afield like […]
It’s snowed a lot more today – school’s been cancelled (hoo-rah!) so we’re buried under about half-a-foot of snow plus hefty deep snowdrifts in which the girls completely disappear from view. Meanwhile, if anyone is at a loose end on the night of Thursday 31st January I’m giving a bike talk to the locals and […]
Four wheels, two rainbows. The lull before the deluge struck. I’ve just dropped Molly off at school 20 yards up the road. Daisy is cocooned in trailer admiring the colourful sight. PS CLICK ON PICTURE TO MAKE BIGGER. MY MUM DIDN’T KNOW THAT BUT I’M SURE EVERYONE ELSE DOES! I’ve been meaning to update my […]
Here’s another batch of pictures from our summer’s cycling jaunt. See last post (Three countries, seas of dykes, waves of windmills) to see where I am and why! Green dykes, green sheep!
When I last wheeled onto these pages I wrote how my plans to cycle from Land’s End to John o’ Groats with Molly and Daisy had suddenly veered rather dramatically off course: instead of heading for Cornwall we headed for Harwich to catch the ferry to Hoek van Holland. This is because at the eleventh […]
