The Trickster Prince

Matt Houlbrook: mobile historian; beard growing, head shaving; occasional cycling.

Occasional cycling



The annual mid-life crisis road cycling trip to Mallorca — slightly later this year, and Adam and I going alone without Dave for company.




Headwinds and the heat of the sun; two-up chaingangs and chasing down other rides; endless switchbacks and stunning scenery on big days out in the big mountains; Puig Major and the Col de Soller.




Five days; 328.56 miles; and 22,032 feet of climbing.




Roll on next year, I can’t wait for Mallorca 2016.
