Here's the same fingerpost forty years earlier in the 1920s. #wayfarer100 #wayfarer #cycling #roughstuff #history #cycletouring #passstorming Photograph from the National Cycle Archive at Warwick University.
The old wooden fingerpost on the Wayfarer track across the Berwyn mountains. Photographed in 1961. The post no longer there but we hope next year's Wayfarer Centenary weekend might provide impetus for a suitable replacement. Photograph by David Birchall, President of the Anfield Bicycle Club (Wayfarer's club). It was taken on David's first time on the track back in 1961. David will be riding with us on 30 March 2019 and giving an illustrated talk on Wayfarer and his significance in the history of British cycling. #wayfarer #wayfarer100 #wales #roughstuff #cycling #history #signpostsofinstagram
149 // Tuesday. -2C. 77K. Beautiful day. Enjoying the sun and the blue sky so much I forgot about making videos. Run into fog around Km 50. // Visit MIXEDTERRAIN.CC to experience the videos in higher resolution and better quality audio. Link in bio // #mixedterrain #mixedterrain .cc #roughstuff #rideeverything
The West Arms Hotel. I assume in March 1919. This is where WM "Wayfarer" Robinson and his friend WP Cook stopped for the night before crossing the Berwyns in the snow. In his article in Cycling magazine, he describes the scene that night: "Rejecting the more elaborate comforts of "the room", we foregathered in front of the roaring fire of the inn kitchen - a kitchen that would delight the heart of Frank Patterson (this was the simultaneous thought of each of us) with its brasses and pewter, its bench, its old table and chairs-and there we supped and yarned. It was the plan of three of us on the morrow to attempt the passage of the Berwyn Mountains - to scale the lofty and rugged barrier which lay between us and the Valley of the Dee - and we were in some doubt as to the feasibility of such a trip so early in the year. Conversation on the subject with our hostess afforded little encouragement or comfort. The crossing was out of the question, we were told." * * * What does the weather have in store for us next March, a hundred years to the day later? #roughstuff #wayfarer #wayfarercentenary #overthetop #cycling #cycletouring #history #westarms #ceiriog #wales #pubs
What's that? A table mat, oven mitt or a sausage holder? Everything and a lot more. Made in Germany completely by hand only with the best leather which we could find. #roughstuff #deubelskerle #bushcraft #bushcrafting #outdoor #outdoor cooking #cooking

More details about the Wayfarer Centenary weekend 29-31 March 2019. #wayfarer100 #roughstuff #cycling #history #wales #lostlanes #wayfarer
Where will you be on the 29th March 2019? I know where I'll be. Here, in the back bar of the West Arms, a historic Welsh inn at the foot of the Berwyn mountains. I'll be sinking a few pints and watching @rsfarchive give a lantern slide show. Brexit, what Brexit? The next day we'll ride the famous track up the Nant Rhyd Wilym to the Rough Stuff Fellowship memorial to 'Wayfarer' at the pass, and carry on 'over the top' down to the Dee valley. This will be 100 years to the day that Wayfarer rode it in the snow. His account of the adventure published in Cycling magazine in May 1919 inspired a generation to seek out the wild places of Britain, by bike and on foot. After the ride there's a Centenary dinner at the West Arms. All are welcome. All the events are free, except the Centenary dinner which is £25 for three courses. Book that dinner directly by calling the West Arms on 01691 600665. They also have rooms available. #roughstuff #cycling #wayfarer #wayfarer100 #history #pubs #wales #lostlanes
The old miner's track alongside William Gill in the Yorkshire Dales. A perfect winter's day. #yorkshiredales #cycletouring #roughstuff #winter

More morning light. Bad things about winter is how short the days are. Good thing is how the sun lingers low in the sky... . . . . . #lakedistrict #lakeland #cumbria #sunrise #bikepacking #biketouring #biketravel #bikewander #biketouring #worldbybike #adventurecycling #landscape #apidura #nobaddays #marin #steelisreal #adventurebybike #roughstuff
i love you. i hope you know how much i love you. sometimes i cry just because i love you so much. i'm so sorry being a toddler is so rough, and i'm even sorrier that i'm not always patient, that i get irritated or clipped with you. tonight you got so worked up you screamed and cried and fought me until you let me tickle your back to sleep. i'm sorry i can't always keep it together for the both of us, but i will always, always love you more than i could love anything else, more love than i can keep inside of myself and it bursts out in tears while i write dumb Instagram posts. you teach me so much about myself and about the world around us. i love you, sweet boy, my beautiful lad, my little bahbo. i would move mountains and destroy worlds for you. thank you for continuously making me a better creature. #iloveyou #alienprince #myentireuniverse #toddlerlife #roughstuff
Do you love corporate food history, the Grateful Dead and eight minute versions of Vampire Weekend songs? . . Probably not, but Time Crisis, the next podcast/internet radio show on the list manages to combine all three and remain weirdly compelling. Hosted by @arze , @streth and @seinfeld2000 , this show sounds, you know, not great on paper, but I promise it’s worth a listen. . The lettering is inspired by the jokerman font, an running topic on the show (and really, how can you not appreciate a show that gets into 90s type design?) . . . . . #tcu #tcheads #timecrisis #roughstuff #jokerman #8minutecapecod #beatsoneradio #ezrakoenig #ipadlettering #podcasts #podcastlover #internetradio #handlettering #handdrawn #coffeehousefonts
Milked the write up of the Highland Trail 550 and spread it over two posts. Link is temporarily up in the bio. Hopefully a useful resource if you are interested in riding the the route up in Scotland, or if you just want to see the pictures placed in order with some accompanying stories. Lots more complaining about the weather, midges and falling in rivers... . . . . #lakedistrict #lakeland #cumbria #bikepacking #biketouring #biketravel #bikewander #biketouring #worldbybike #adventurecycling #landscape #apidura #nobaddays #marin #steelisreal #adventurebybike #roughstuff
All our vintage bikes are both useful and beautiful. We can’t wait to see the new @mamnick #roughstuff inspired #bobblehat to match our sticker on our #Allin #retro #bike #fancylugs
Yer boys found the snow. What was supposed to be a nice dirt-road day-ride got a bit #roughstuff . It quickly became a situation laced with desperation and hastened trudging as the light faded. (#faded ) #nojudging #weaintdeadyet

I wanted to follow the Lakeland 200 ITT route in three days. 200km on such mixed terrain would have been quite do-able in the summer, but the days were far too short in late November to get the mileage in. (Basically I was just far slower than I thought I'd be so did a big shortcut in order to catch my train home in time). . . . . . #lakedistrict #lakeland #cumbria #bikepacking #biketouring #biketravel #bikewander #biketouring #worldbybike #adventurecycling #landscape #apidura #nobaddays #marin #steelisreal #adventurebybike #roughstuff

Back to Cumbria... I got off the train in Staveley at 10.30pm and wasn't sure how easy it would be to find somewhere to camp. So I took my bivvy for the first night and found somewhere in the forest within a couple miles of leaving the village. It was cold, wet and took far too long for the sun to come out in the morning... . . . . . . #lakedistrict #lakeland #cumbria #bivvy #wildcamping #bikepacking #biketouring #biketravel #bivvylife #bikewander #biketouring #worldbybike #adventurecycling #landscape #apidura #nobaddays #marin #steelisreal #adventurebybike #roughstuff
Tad lame, I know, but I keep a cycling diary of the places I go riding. My memory is crap and if I don't write things down I'll never remember where I went pedalling. Had some time recently so I typed up some of my notes from Scotland and decided to resurrect my blog for 'old time's sake' after it sat dormant through 2018. I spent three years carefully documenting my ride around the world and I miss the typing slightly. So, if you've missed my blogs complaining about the weather almost everywhere I go - then here's one for you.

There is some amazing bridleway to cycle in this country if you know where to look.

🌧 Was wir an Wetter wie heute Lieben? ➡️ Draußen alleine zu sein und die Natur für sich zu haben 🙈😜 💥 Trotz Regen und Schnee, warm und trocken: Loden von #roughstuff macht’s! #fichtelgebirge #regenundschnee #roughstuff #derskandinavier #deinoutdoorshop #draußen #nature #fog #outdoor #hundeliebe
I guess I'm narcissistic 'cause I'm tryin' to get it Am I being selfish attemptin' to rid my life from the drama in it See it was harder comin' home than goin' in Hard to understand that statement unless you came from where I've been Why is it difficult to do right but so easy to sin Findin' peace in losin' to move on from the chaos of the win That demon in the mirror is still the saint that he portrays So the songs of tomorrow borrow sorrows from today. #personaltrainers #aimforthestars #goals #focus #itsalifestyle #guyswithtattoos #dadswholift #dad #fitdad #impactPTsolutions #dinpersonligetrener #roughstuff #results #familyfirst #aimforthestars #allaboardthegaintrain #bodybuilding #nevergonnastop #nutrition #fitnessfamily #fitness #itsalifestyle #doitforyou #personaltrainers #strongman #yoke #farmerswalk #nevergonnastop #mylove #loveyou #mentalhealth #ptsd #adhd #demons

ADVENTURE, IN ITS PUREST FORM. The first cycling expedition with my son, in the countryside. We rode gravel. Crossed puddles. Discovered birdwatching huts. Met donkeys, sheeps, horses and cows. Enjoyed the quiet flow of the river. We smelled mushrooms and flowers. We had fun together. Eventually, he had to push his bicycle a bit, but it was worth the experience. ___ #fromwhereiride #fatherandson #kidsonbikes #typeonefun #adventurecycling #roughstuff #nature #biketouring #gravelride #explore #thejoyofcycling #roadplus #autumnisgreat #kidscycling #dirttouring #cyclinglife #rivercrossing #gravelride #gravelgrinder #riservateverefarfa #GravelDiaries

"Daddy, what's this?" The first cycling expedition with my son, in the countryside, along River Tevere. We rode gravel. Crossed puddles. Discovered birdwatching huts. Met donkeys, sheeps, horses and cows. Enjoyed the quiet flow of the river. We smelled mushrooms and flowers. We had fun together. Eventually, he had to push his bicycle a bit, but it was worth the experience. ___ #fromwhereiride #adventurecycling #roughstuff #nature #biketouring #gravelride #explore #fatherandson #thejoyofcycling #roadplus #autumnisgreat #kidscycling #kidsonbikes #farmlife #fields #naturephotography #riservateverefarfa
