Earth Day – The Selfless Isolation Project

Earth Day 🌍 I can’t remember the last time so many people made a daily effort to get outside & make the most of what they have on their doorstep. Most of the people I’ve seen on the local trails or walking past my house, I’ve never seen, despite living here for a few years…

TRASH FREE TRAILS CALLS FOR ‘SELFLESS ISOLATION’ IN SPRING TRAIL CLEAN DIY TOUR

‘RUBBISH’ RIDERS, RUNNERS & ROAMERS STILL REQUIRED! You will remember earlier this year I announced Trash Free Trails Spring Trail Clean Tour due to kick off on 4th April.

You may remember earlier this year I travelled north to take part in Trash Free Trails’ Spring Trail Clean Tour. On this weekend of activism and education, I met Ben Gaby, CEO of RideGuard. I’d never really given much thought to where mud guards came from; their cheap, serve a purpose and have become a…

Trash Free Trails – Dably & Grizedale Spring Trail Clean Tour Stops

Where do I begin? I was fortunate to be invited to be one of Trash Free Trails Ambassadors last year, or this year, to be honest, time is moving so fast currently, my memory of exactly when certain actions have been taken isn’t the best. Either way, I was made part of the A Team,…

TRASH FREE TRAILS – SPRING TRAIL CLEAN TOUR

Trash Free Trails are about to embark on a UK tour and you may remember a few weeks back I told you why I support this rider led non-profit. It’s more than simply getting litter out of nature and keeping woodland in its natural state. TFT/Trash Free Trails is about conscious decisions, changing attitudes to…

Why I support Trash Free Trails

Why Trash Free Trails? It’s a good and valid question. I could simply respond with a simple ‘why not’, killing any conversation, using an abrupt one line that adds no value to anyone, even myself. So let’s begin. Looking back, I can remember Surfers Against Sewage back to my youth, despite never living near the…
