Cycling through the landscape

Cycling gets you out of doors into the world - there is a strong link with geography which is partly why it attracted me in the first place.

This is clearly a shared connection:

To love cycling, inevitably means to love geography and additionally, the different regions.

This will not please Mrs Boisseau, who encouraged the young pupil that I was to meticulously bury myself in all kinds of maps, but regular visits to cycling races have led me to discover geography differently.

There are two sections:

Cycling Events

The events pages cover a few races attended over the years such as the Tour of Britain and the Tour de France.

Cycling Routes

These pages describe some of the cycling routes I have used since the late '80's when I got hooked on cycling. The aim is provide each route with a map and profile along with descriptions and where available some photo material.

Some of the route data can also be downloaded from the my-tracks website.
