Whenever I head off into the Great Outdoors I do like to be prepared, which is really just the Scouts way of saying ‘planning for the worst’. Fortunately, ‘the worst’ for a few days away (certainly here in the UK) usually just means inclement weather with a fair certainty of rain, so with this in mind all of my ‘valuable’ (read not-exactly-waterproof items such as smartphone, car keys and wallet) go into a small dry bag which is duly stuffed into my rucksack.

A beautiful ride

Skateboarding – cruising stylishly through an urban environment, leaning on style, history and culture – what’s not to love? Unfortunately for me, I’ve never really got on with skateboards – I think I missed the optimal learning window in my younger days (when injury consequence played little part in anything) and haven’t since taken the time to address it.
