Well, it is with a heavy heart that I have made the decision after over fives years of blogging and a million and a quarter page views to call it a day on releasing regular blog posts. There are lots of reasons for this which I won't bore you with but sadly, for the moment at least, I cannot summon up the necessary enthusiasm to sustain the release of regular postings.
I started this blog simply as a means of recording my memories in an online diary but its readership - much to my amazement and delight - grew steadily to the extent that I have an average of 25,000 views a month - on a bad month.
Thank you dear reader if you have read my ramblings over the years, left a comment or sent me the odd email. This has all been much appreciated. Wherever you are in the world I do hope that you can get out on your bicycle and continue or start to have adventures of your own.
Farewell for now dear readers.
