The Wheel is my Oyster

The home of the Oyster Wheel: A multi-day cycle tour of London

Why then the world’s mine oyster, Which I with wheel will open

With apologies to Shakespeare’s The Merry Wives of Windsor

CTC 1953 Tour

1953 CTC Tour

This is the story of my Dad’s tour with the Cycle Touring Club to the Dauphine and Jura in May and June 1953. Maybe one day I’ll follow in his wheels……

Cycling in Langdale

Lakeland Gravel

A series of 7 gravel bike routes rideable from Ambleside covering Coniston, Langdale, Grasmere and Hawkshead.

When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking

I created the Oyster Wheel whilst supporting my wife who is suffering from Pancreatic Cancer. If having tried out and enjoyed the routes, you would like to donate to support research then my fund-raising page can be found below.
