Paragliding in Chamonix


I've just returned from two weeks holiday in the Chamonix valley. The area is an outdoor sports enthusiast's playground. Whilst there, I enjoyed some mountain-biking, hiking with my girlfriend and my dog, and of course, paragliding.

The Ryedale Ride 2008


The Ryedale Ride is a 50k bicycle ride in aid of Cancer Research UK
The ride follows a fully marshalled route, starting and finishing at Duncombe Park, Helmsley, North Yorkshire.
This year it will be held on Sunday, 29th June.
Unfortunately, I won't be able to ride this year, but I'm showing my support by building and hosting the website.

Why Drupal?

It's been about 2 weeks since I launched the new website, so I guess it's not new any more. Although it was probably about 2 years since I updated the old one, so relatively speaking...
I've decided to stick with Drupal. I really like it. It's intuitive, easy to use, and it makes updating my site a breeze.
So why Drupal? Or any CMS for that matter?
I wanted to build a site that would be quick and easy to update. Adding and maintaining HTML pages is a pain - which is why my old site lay neglected for so long. Using a CMS makes updates a snap!


I have been into motorcycling for almost as long as I can remember and the list of bikes that I have owned is long (and varied). For a milestone birthday I treated myself to a Ducati 996.
I've always wanted a Ducati, and I've always prefered my bikes in black. So the logical conclusion was to have her resprayed from the original yellow, to a glossy metallic black.

This was at least a year before the second "Matrix" film was released (and Trinity's bike is not actually black. It's very dark green).

Now I know why it's called IE

That's the sound web developers make when they're tearing their hair out...
