Not long left to see one of my favourite artists on show in Hong Kong- Callum Innes. He's inspired by stuff like escalators, so he's allowed on here...


NYC Wannabe

Steve '30 bikes' Coward takes HK MTB to NYC. Surely this trail beats anything in Central Park? Great shot of what it's all about...

Another good session at the velodrome this weekend with a few new peeps. L>R Ivis, Nora, Paulo, Hillary, Yours Truly, Ellen, Brian.

The good news from my end was I finally felt like I got the flying 200m nailed from a technique perspective- nice and high going into the final banking with a good drop to hit the white line at max speed. I felt like I faded a bit in the last 50m but still good enough for a 12.68 / 57kph. It would be nice to try on an indoors to see if an elevens is possible for me?

HK Farm

Greening the rooftops of deepest Kowloon in action via flwrider. It ain't like the farms in Gloucestershire... Chapeau.

I think this is a bit too nice to be a real 'Man Cave', but it is still a very nice shed.

CX Commuting

So tonight I christened the new Max Cross machine off road on a trail that is dull as ditch water on a fully suspended mtb, but pretty lively on a CX bike with road tires! Still, with a view like this on my way home, I really can't complain either way.

A photo of 'the view' from the 28th floor of another dull Hong Kong hotel that happens to have some pretty cool cityscapes.

As I fight man flu on the sofa (disaster) I can at least take some solace from watching Team GB fight the Ozzie / French (delete as applicable to Endurance / Sprint) in the Melbourne track worlds. Here's a great shot of Pendleton flying:


Tokyo @ Night

Japan booked for this coming Christmas- at last!!! Image stolen from here:

Curiously, by some sort of google meta tag spam attack, this post is my 'most read' . If you've arrived here by accident and you're looking for some sort of semi-meaningful content, can I suggest to re-direct you to here:

Max Commute

A quick shot of my first commute on the now built Colossi Max. I've got a few tweaks to make before I do some nicer photos, but first impressions are this is very much fitting the bill of a relaxed commuter that I can lever up some tricky climbs and take along some smoother off road trails on my to and from the office.

Stumbled across this very cool photo of the 'B of the Bang' sculpture being welded up. Sadly a spike fell off and they took it down in '09, but I still love the scale of this thing. Reminds me of trips to Manchester Velodrome...



The Danes doing the good stuff in Copenhagen. A beautiful facade.

Double O 4

A really nice photo of team colossi's small fixed gear team, taken by Eric Lee at Saturday night's excellent Double O fixed gear criterium. A real breath of fresh air from the HKCA officialdom- these guys just get out there and race (and take amazing photos / cinematography)! I'm looking forward to the video...
