New Godmersham to Canterbury Cycleway!

I have just ridden the picturesque new cycleway from Godmersham to Canterbury.

Starting of from Wye which nestles at the foot of the north downs, I followed NCR 18 towards Canterbury and picked up the New Cycleway at Godmersham, it then follows the undulating contour of the downs until reaching Chartham where the route follows alongside the beautiful crystal clear waters of the Stour all the way into the historic city of Canterbury.

Get Britain Cycling

HM Government

Promote cycling by implementing the recommendations in the ‘Get Britain Cycling’ report.

Responsible department: Department for Transport

We the undersigned call on the Prime Minister to pledge that the Government will implement the recommendations in the ‘Get Britain Cycling’ parliamentary report.
The inquiry, chaired by a cross-party panel of MPs and peers, heard that promoting cycling as a healthy and affordable way to travel can tackle Britain’s obesity crisis, save millions from NHS budgets, boost the economy and reduce congestion on our roads and trains.
The inquiry’s 18 recommendations focus on reallocating investment, safer road design, lower speed limits, better training and strong political leadership.
This will require cross-departmental consensus led from the Cabinet Office and Downing Street, not just from the Department for Transport.
In the Commons on February 22, 2012, the Prime Minister said of The Times’s ‘Cities Fit for Cycling’ campaign: “If we want to encourage the growth in cycling we’ve seen in recent years, we need to get behind campaigns like this.”
Now is the time to act on those words.

Bicycle Taxidermy


The loving and lasting solution for your mechanical bereavement

An eccentric side project born out of too many sleepless nights at the Royal College of Art and a homesickness for the rugged Highlands. Bicycle Taxidermy first began on a couple of memento mori for my father’s once prized but long discarded mountain and road bikes.

A somewhat sentimental take on a mass produced object becoming defunct, the handlebars are given the care and craft of a preserved family pet(!) The bikes have now been re-appropriated as a family heirloom.

Crafted in London; the taxidermy service mounts a client’s steed on a scorched or bleached European oak plaque made by Mick, a local joiner. Chrome mounting brackets fix the stem above a stainless steel epitaph etched in Argyll, Scotland, the plaque denotes the horned beasts model, pet name, dates ridden and a commemorative verse. Just fill in the epitaph field on the site and I’ll get it engraved and send out the plaque for you to mount yourself.

The second option is for a purpose made mount; the same mounting strategy can be applied to newly sourced handlebars. I focus on chromed Chopper, Cruiser, Pursuit, Butterfly and Dropped bars.

Others can be used but I’ve found these to be the best.
