Since moving to the Isle of Wight I have taken up Sea Kayaking and as a back injury, plus some building work, has kept me off the bike(s) for a bit, I’ve updated this page to share our wider experiences, sports or pastimes.
Photo here is of my new Kayak pulled up in a creek called Newtown Creek in The Solent UK. Depending on tide flow this is about an hour from home. On this particular da the Solent was calm but it’s not always so peaceful.
The page header photo is of The Needles which is the westernmost point of the Isle of Wight.
I did a lot of sea kayaking when I was younger. A friend and I went on day trips, night paddles, and multi-day camping adventures. I learned how to surf a 21 foot boat in the ocean, as well as enjoy endless miles in calm lakes. This is a photo is from about 30 years ago. I have more, but they are in a box somewhere.
I’ve changed Rides to Other Stuff so that hopefully we can share activities other than cycling.
