HISS next week – OMG!

Vet busy multitasking today as I’m finishing the Field Guides and hope to have all the printing done by lunchtime …

Danger – map geek at work (with added Radio 4 from the BBC and the mandatory mug of tea! 

At long last I’ve been up to day keeping records of all of the trails – all 1,295 kms of them! – and new for 2017 a section of the best road routes in the area, which tot up to another 950 kms.

I’m also adding in POI’s, some amazing places for photography! 🙂


The Spanish Biker web page gets a new look!

It’s been a long time overdue but we’ve finally found some time to totally rebuild the site with a new theme. We’re also drawing more attention to the commercial side – now that I’ve ‘retired’! – and will be systematically reviewing all of the guide information as some is now obsolete. The latter will now be under the ‘Book’ chapter.

Some gentle exploration!


Making a difference – sponsored ride for Cancer Research

It’s about time I started posting again so what better motivation than to help promote Graham Lampkin’s epic ride through Spain and France on his 1960 vintage Royal Enfield trials bike!

Over the winter we’ve been working out his itinerary from Santander to the Pyrenees, passing through majestic scenery, some of Spain’s best and most famous trails and, er, as many towns whose name begins with ‘L’ as possible!

Do check out Graham’s site: Lampy goes to L and back – get the ‘L’ joke! 🙂 – for the full story or you can donate directly via his entry on the Just Giving fund raising platform.
