The 12 meals of Christmas

I had a great Christmas, rather overindulging on food, even managing to exceed the 7 special meals that were planned in my calendar. I did a bit of extra riding to compensate for it though, and I’ve included a couple of recipes, so you can taste some of my experiments for yourself.

Coast to Coast unicycle challenge – we made it!

After 140 miles over 4 days, our intrepid band.of 8 unicyclists have arrived in Sunderland. I don’t have the time or energy for a full report now, but I’ll be writing the whole thing up over the next couple of days.
