Coast to Coast 2019 – Day Three

Day Three Starting at Great Salkeld we headed towards Garsdale Head near Hawes. We have dipped our tyres in some lovely fords today and travelled across some rocky roads high in the fells. The last time we crossed the ford on Breasthigh Road it was at the limit of our wading depth, today it barely made the wheels wet!. Not only…

Coast to Coast 2019 – Day Two

Day TWO It was a shorter day today with time to wander around Keswick and check out the shops. We travelled from Whitehaven to Great Salkeld.

Our proximity to London made us an easy choice. The team came by train and were picked up from the local station by Discovery – their studio for the…

Laning with ELRC in June

We have been working hard at our real jobs and when Ray said that he needed an extra leader for the June laning trip it seemed like a good excuse to get out of the office. Yesterday we met at Sainsbury’s in Chelmsford and headed out for some local laning and then towards…

2018 National at Stainby

The previous five years we had provided the role of official photography with pictures on display in the beer tent in the evening. This year the plan was to just…

The first task has been to load several hundred images from the recent ALRC National Rally held at Stainby in Lincolnshire. This highlighted many issue with the way I have worked in the past and my efforts to simplify…
