It is now less than a week until I start peddling in Cornwall. It has proved challenging to maintain the fitness that I achieved earlier in the year. This is mostly due to being in meetings i) working on underwater noise in European Seas, ii) helping to develop a monitoring plan for some environmental issues associated with an oil development off the Falkland Islands and iii) trying to advance albatross conservation globally. At the last of these meetings, I have been forced to take to a stationary bicycle machine that I have to say was rather boring. I guess this activity would be more fun if someone else was there to talk to, but even having music to listen to made it no less boring. So I am looking forward to getting on the road for real, but have some trepidation over how I will feel trying to cycle while being less fit than ideal. Wish me luck!

In May/June 2019, I am cycling the length on Britain, visiting all the places that I have lived and a few friends along the way. This is a charity ride aimed to raise funds for Alzheimer's Research UK and the Spinal Injuries Association. I will also have fun looking for various features along the way and exploring the meaning of memory View all posts by Mark on a bike
