Since it’s Record Store Day 2017 this Saturday, here is a look back to the very small collection, I had by around this time last year!! I will of course, post a new photo of my collection on Saturday! Let’s just say, it’s growing a lot since then!!

Record Store Day 2016!

Can’t believe it was a year ago today, that I got the Specialized Crosstrail Sport Disc ’16 from Edinburgh Bicycle Co-Operative. Of course, I need to thank my Mum once again for getting it for me! Since getting him. he’s done 4,467.8 miles! Not been serviced once in that time! Which I do really need to change!

I will leave you with some photos of him! 🙂

After really getting the mountain climbing bug over the last year or so. About time, I added a new sub section to my photo gallery! Which will display some of my favourite photos, of some of the UK named summits, I’ve done! Sure, this list will grow fast!

Can you check out the photos so far @ www.gordon-valentine.com/zenphoto/uk-named-summits/.

First of all got to say a big thanks to Shaun for doing all the driving today!! And of course to his Dad, for letting him use his car! Got to say that he’s a great driver! Felt safe 100% of the time!

We all had amazing time! Even the crap weather did not stop us, from making it all the way to the top! Extra well done to Shaun for climbing his first mountain. Let’s hope, he’s now got the bug and that, I talk him into doing Scafell Pike. Which is the highest mountain in England.

And of course, also well done to James! Who was, feeling it from the off! Then like me, he’s more into cycling than walking! We all made it, to the top and back down safe. Which is the main thing!

Just wish the weather had been better! But that just makes me really, want to do it again! Hoping we get better views the next time!!

After not doing a 40+ mile cycle since September last year! I’ve now done two, in so many days! I did 46.26 miles on Sunday (9th April 2017), then 40.62 miles today! So getting closer to get my first 50+ mile of the year done! Really hoping, I get one in before the month is out!

Check out the route I took @ www.strava.com/activities/937817847.
