On your bike...

On your bike...

You could argue that the town we live in (Bourg d'Oisans) is not just the gateway to the Ecrins National Park, (an impressive enough claim to fame)..... but also the biggest cog in the world of road cycling, in, well, the world!

Wednesday afternoons in France

Wednesday afternoons in France

There is no school on a Wednesday afternoon across the majority of France. The idea is, that children use this time to pursue any hobbies or sports that might interest them. In the past, the older boys have signed up to judo at the beginning of the year and that has been our Wednesday afternoons accounted for. This year, however, we thought we'd leave them free to do whatever takes our fancy at the time; be it skiing, cycling, walking, swimming or simply hanging out with friends.

Bogs in Bogs

Bogs in Bogs

If you ever plan to visit Aberdeenshire, come in the autumn! It’s the one dry (ish) season and the whole countryside bursts into brilliant colour in one final blaze before winter sets in. But do remember your wellies – this is Scotland, after all, so ‘dry’ is just a relative term. And so this is the perfect time of year for Mini to test a pair of Bogs wellies!

Craigendarroch Spiral Walk

Craigendarroch Spiral Walk

Today we really wanted to go and explore some areas down Fife or Lothian way, but we get beautiful weather so seldomly that we had to follow the sun – inland it was, then! We’ve passed through Ballater many times en-route to other places but never explored it properly. Jon suggested that as we’ve spectacularly failed to do any family walks during National Walking Month that we go for a bit of a bimble around one of the many circular walks around Ballater.

Training Ride

Training Ride

Last Saturday was a day of huge excitement in our house as we upgraded the 7yo to the next size bike which meant that the 5yo inherited the old bike. I'm not sure who was more excited, the older boy with the brand new bike, or the younger boy who finally had a bike with gears.

An epic Wiltshire walk

An epic Wiltshire walk

Although I’m writing this on a particularly rainy day, May really has been pretty glorious so far, giving us some perfect weather for adventures. The good weather, #NationalWalkingMonth and new shoes from Little Trekkers (Meindl Responds for the 7yo) inspired us to plan an epic walk. Most often we head out from the house on foot and walk around our local area, but for this walk we decided to try something new. We even had to pick up a new OS Map as we were heading over the border to Wiltshire (sounds more dramatic than it was, we only drove for 30 minutes to the starting point!).

Swinging into the weekend

Swinging into the weekend

What can I say, our little trekker loves the swings and part of our daily routine is to walk to the park and let our little adrenaline junky get his fix. On this particular rainy Friday afternoon the heavens opened and although he had been cooped up all day I wasn’t sure it was a good idea to go out.
