Moods Of Future Joys

I can't stress how amazing this book is. Written by Alistair Humphreys, it is a mind blowing account of the first leg of his around the world bicycle ride which he started in 2001. It took him for 4 years and 3 months to cycle 46,000 miles, spending only £7,000 of hoarded student loans. The observations and detail of what Al encountered along the way are shared with the reader in a deeply honest way with no emotions held back. The sheer grit and determination to overcome the physical and mental battles he faces on his epic journey should be an inspiration to all. Simply a must read book!

Ice Crystals

It was early morning on the trail to Refugio Frey and upon heading down to the trail to start the phase of maintenance work we chanced upon these stunning ice crystal formations. They were everywhere and sticking out of the muddied trail as though they were living beings.
