Now the National Trails have been completed, and while they build the England Coast Path, I have switched to cycle touring. Many of the walks have inspired me to take up this alternative means of transport, as many paths are, in fact, cycle trails.

My bike is a Thorn Sherpa, with just the basics, nothing fancy.


I completed the North Sea Cycle Route from Bergen, Norway to Shetland via Dover. approximately  6,000km.

Next, the Atlantic seaboard around Scotland and Ireland, followed by the Irish Sea and English Channel route.  My inspiration comes from a book by Robert McFarlane, taking a historic perspective of civilisations who interconnected via the sea.
