About Me

What do you want to know?
(I will update this page with answers to anyones questions)

My name is cHris.

I am a Christian.

I am not so much a cyclist as a tourist that often uses a bike to get around!

I am a Church Leader at Grace Church, Hilton.
I also work as a Library Assistant at the University of Derby.

In the summer of 2010 I cycled (most of the way) from Brussels to Cephalonia, Greece, to see my sister get married.
Then in 2011 I cycled to Biarritz with some friends, and returned to cycle the rest of the way to Madrid in 2012.
In 2013 with some of the same friends we took a more leisurely cycle north from Brussels to Amsterdam.
In 2014 I blogged whilst at the Olympic Winter Games in Russia.
In 2015 I failed to record my almost Coast to Coast ride in the North of England.
In 2016 I cycled from home to the West coast of Wales.

    Hi,
    I am planning on cycling the Via Francigena next year in June, splitting it in two. Canterbury to Lausanne and then later Lausanne to Rome. I have been following Andrew Sykes bloga avidly..its informative and highly entertaining !
    Is that the route you plan on using ? We will be using mountain bikes with paniers and will carry la ightweight tent as well.

      My route will be slightly different to Andrew’s as I am getting the train to start in Brussels and then keeping to the Eastern side of Italy, so not going to Rome. Saying that, I haven’t actually made any firm route plans yet!

      Thanks Helen – I’m finally “informative and highly entertaining”! I wish someone would tell that to some of the teenage students I have to teach… 🙂

    Hi Chris,
    I think you should put grid references of your whereabouts on here too, so we can all follow your progress on the map. Although, I don’t think Google maps recognises grid refs. Mum x

    Hi Chris
    Look forward to following your journey, hope your hectic life allows you to get some training in before the big day

  5. After seeing you off safely, and on time, from Derby Railway Station, I couldn’t believe it when I heard you almost missed your train to Brussels…! Glad you finally caught it in the end… Your life is a bit like mine at the moment, we’ve barely got any skin left on our teeth..!! I’m sure it’s not the last stressful situation you’ll be confronted with but I’m equally sure you’ll deal with them admirably… Mum x
