Curly Wyrley

Mary & Sarah take a bicycle trip on the Wyrley & Essington canal. Affectionately known at the Curly Wyrley due to its circuitous route through the North of the Black Country.

Proper Black Country humour up the cut!

Gears for Queers – A Book Review

Abi & Lili document the highs & lows of cycle touring, navigating the world as a visible queer couple, coping with mental health issues and peer pressure from the ‘professional’ cycle tourists on instagram; along with being unfit, fat and vegan!

Streets of Birmingham

As part of the Bicycle Adventure Club Project 139, Mary & Sarah take a ride around the eerily silent centre of Birmingham on what would normally be a bustling Saturday. Mary aslo takes us on a tour of Digbeth and her childhood.

Map to Adventure

Project 139 is based around the Ordnance Survey Landranger series 1: 50 000 scale maps. Map number 139 in particular because it is where Mary & I live. It give us a boundary so we can look for adventures closer to home. How do you find that adventure? In this post I want to try and take you on that journey. The journey from map to adventure.
