#NC500In2Days : FREE Pannier Message Slots Available NOW!

Last year for my #WAWIn1Week challenge I offered slots on my panniers to Companies to advertise their products / brand whilst I travelled along the length of the World’s Longest Dedicated Coastal Route in a record breaking 6 days*  The uptake was great as was the feedback!

I have decided to do the same again this year and offer out my panniers for you guys to patch your brand onto the side of my bike as it travels round the coast line of Scotland in another time limited (and in my eyes record breaking)challenge of 2 days!

So what’s the catch?  There isn’t one, however I do have to want to support your brand.  It is my decision on what I put on my boxes.  It is also free!  

All you have to do is contact me, telling me a little about your brand (a website reference will do) and if I like what your are doing / about I will contact you back.  Then you just have to get the sticker made up and sent to me.  I will add it to my panniers and boom, there you have it, free advertising for you (whilst on the trip and in the subsequent photos and videos across FaceBook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube) and awesome looking panniers for me!

Charities are also welcome.

*I don’t know if it was actually record breaking but as I haven’t heard any difference let’s just pretend it was!

New Year – New Gear (Part I) : Boots – Magnum SideWinders

The new biking season has just kicked off properly in the UK, although as I sit here typing this out tonight I look outside and boy does it look cold!  I can further evidence this by the fact that it is 0 degrees celcius outside!

It's April, in fact it is almost May and it is still freezing in Northern Ireland!

Updated (1) : Three (3 Mobile) The One Plan Comes to a Crashing End – for me anyway.

So yesterday I got the dreaded letter from 3 (Three Mobile) @ThreeUK / @ThreeUKSupport informing me that The One Plan was coming to an end for me.

Anyone who knows the One Plan knows that it was an amazing deal offered by Three that basically meant you gave them £15 hard earned pound coins and they gave you unlimited calls, texts and data, truly unlimited that even allowed tethering.

If you didn’t know about it, unlucky, you missed out.

One problem though, as with everything good it was abused.  People cancelled their broadband and such, streaming and downloading TBs of data every month.  Of course this then made such a plan unsustainable and caused Three to bin it.  I understand that.  It is what happens next that I do not understand.
