Remember back in June I did a bit of a bike ride around Portsmouth with Premier Inn? Well, here’s the extended write-up on that ride… Long time followers of VCG will know that I used to split a lot of time between London and Portsmouth. What’s a bit mad about that is that I’d never actually done a “proper” ride around there before. There was the occasional cycle into town and along the beachfront with The Boy, but that was pretty much it. No exploring and checking out what was beyond the cycle paths… I finally got the chance to rectify this cycling oversight AND get some extra training in […]
If by any chance you’ve been on the Premier Inn website recently, you might have spotted some familiar faces! Premier Inn invited VCG to take a cycling break with them as part of their #PremierSummer series – so me and The Boy loaded up our gear for a weekend of riding in Portsmouth, and did ‘Round the Harbours’.

The search for a 2nd set of Wheels has resulted in success… come next Tuesday, this Red Retro baby should be with me! It’s a vintage Raleigh Twenty & is exactly what I was hoping to find. It appears to be in fantastic condition from the further pictures on the listing for it, and has been well loved by the previous owner… Loving the colour scheme & the totally Retro vibes to it 🙂 I guess that I must have the ‘Cycling Bug’ bad, as I’ve not even had my Pashley for 6 months and already I’ve bought another set of wheels… Its permanent base will be in Portsmouth, so […]
I have been rather lacklustre on updating further adventures on Frankie. I’ve not been able to ride her over the past week due to things & events happening after work, which would not correspond well with me on a Pashley. Will be back on the saddle next week… I’ve been missing the feeling of how energised I get riding! In the meantime, it would appear that the Sun has decided to stick his hat on – meaning more people are out in force on two wheels – which is always lovely to see. I’m in Portsmouth at the moment (a long weekend which started on Thursday afternoon) and there are […]
