Introduction

WELCOME! I've been cycling through the Southeast Valleys of Wales since 2010 and I can't say (or show) enough about the place. I just love it. So if you've got the interest and would like to spend some time... sit back and let me show you some of the fabulous places I've discovered.

Smiles Not Miles


Quite simply, I was stunned. Your enthusiastic support caught me completely off-guard. I had no idea that I would receive such encouragement. And in a word, it was fabulous! Thank you everyone. Your efforts - from kind words, cheering emails, joining along for a ride, and of course, your very generous donations - all made my efforts a wonderfully fun adventure. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
