Shouting from my shed – 38

Konnichi wa,
I’m madly chasing a (self-imposed) book deadline and therefore what better thing to do than distract myself by taking the time to share ten golden nuggets with you:

  1. I’m delighted to announce that after a looooot of work and time, the film of My Midsummer Morning is now online for you to watch and enjoy / endure.
  2. The best way to decide whether you’ll find my new book interesting is to sign up for my other newsletter (and therefore save yourself the bother and expense of having to buy it!)
  3. If you buy two books on my website, I’ll give you another one for free. That is a good thing, by the way, not a punishment… (UK only, sorry.)
  4. Observations on our country from the perspective of three long distance cyclists.
  5. An adventure grant that is aimed at encouraging more people to undertake adventures, particular those who have “never done that sort of thing before. Smack down that imposter syndrome and apply today! I dare you…
  6. I’m gathering speakers for the Night of Adventure event in March. Have you been on an interesting journey, large or small? Do you fancy the terrifying experience of telling your tale to 1000 people and not being paid a penny for your troubles? If so, please fill in this form.
  7. comprehensive kit list for your next cycling adventure? “A revolver is not considered necessary in the more civilised areas of Europe, but if accosted by brigands inform them that you are British and and display your Union Flag.”
  8. Howay, man. Alpkit have opened a new shop in Gateshead and I’ll be doing a talk there on October 31st if you happen to be in toon.
  9. I’m speaking at the Outdoor Education conference in Glasgow on 14th November if you work in that sector.
  10. Oh my, oh my. This is how to ride a bike. (Hold my beer…)
What are days for?
Days are where we live.
They come, they wake us
Time and time over.
They are to be happy in:
Where can we live but days?
– Philip Larkin
