Just in case anyone was wondering where my website had gone or why it looks a bit different now this is because it was hacked into last year. Someone, somewhere decided to bury deep into it thus sending the whole jolly shebang awry. Why anyone wants to be bothered to hack into a few pictures of bicycles heaven only knows, but it was obviously someone who had nothing better to do.

As the workings of computers are all a bit beyond me I’ve stuck to doing what I know how to do: ride my bike every day and raise three budding cyclists who are all expanding at a great rate of knots. Meanwhile, my local computer man up the road through the woods has been busy resurrecting my website.  As this is the first time on this new and slightly odd-looking update page I don’t know whether it’s going to work or not or whether the pictures are going to shoot all over the shop so bear with me as they say in the trade…

Jack, who is now 2, loves his bike (an Islabike scoot-along)with a heartening enthusiasm and is on it everyday. He sports an interesting cyclist's dress sense - here he is self-styled as a fairy-cat. Unbeknown to Daisy he borrowed her fairy wings and found a cat's tail in the dressing-up box.

As you can see it's quite a sporty look and offers the benefit of being able to fly as well as cycle. I think a similar look could spice up Le Tour no end - you've just got to be careful you don't get your tail caught in the spokes.

Jack won't go anywhere without his bike. Here he is demonstrating his off-road beach-riding skills with Molly (atop yonder rock) and spade-wielding Daisy on Shanklin beach (Isle of Wight).

As anyone knows, spending large amounts of time outside a-wheel results in one becoming very attuned to the weather. Here Jack is indicating: 'Weather's closing in mum. Rain imminent!'
