This latest Interesting Interview meets all of my criteria from a subject and content perspective, and also goes one step further as it is a special, dual-interview. In addition to an interesting person answering questions, I’ve also factored in an interesting bike interview as well. I met Simon through the
Introducing the Workshop – Part 1
Every Projecteer has to have a shed or space or workshop, right? Of course! I’m no different to any other Projecteer, and I include my wife in this category as she’s got her own workshop as well. In fact, both of our workshops are connected by the overall structure of
To stud or not to stud. This is THE winter tyre question!
I bought my first pair of studded tyres about two years ago, and specifically for use on my eMTB. The grip in the Swiss winter snow, and particularly the fully iced roads was immense, and big smile inducing. These particular tyres, made by Schwalbe and called the Ice Spiker Pro
The Old and the New: A tale of two Swiss Mountain Passes??

The Golden Age of……..
How many times have you heard someone claim that a certain thing or subject was indeed, the Golden Age of…..etc etc? I heard it said the other day. Someone was referring to the golden age of music when the recording of music in studios was on magnetic tape. He went
