The 7 Best Things to Do in Hay-on-Wye


Looking for things to do in Hay on Wye? Me (Joel) and an old friend of mine, Rob, headed to Hay on Wye for a bit of a lads weekend to catch up and enjoy a bit of kayaking. Rob came down on his brand-new Royal Enfield Himalayan and I went in Bumper, of course. We both came from the Midlands and unfortunately, Rob got caught in severe traffic and heavy rain, which led to a rather wet and late arrival. So wet, he could wring his gloves out Ha! But despite that, we had a cracking weekend catching up over a few beers, coffees and paddles on the River Wye. Read on to find out more about the town!

How to Complete the National 3 Peaks Challenge in 24 Hours

National 3 Peaks Challenge

As I type this, it’s a week on from our National 3 Peaks Challenge. This time last week we were en route from Ben Nevis to Scafell Pike in Bumper. The National Three Peaks Challenge was harder than I expected and I think I’m still feeling some of the effects from it…or it could just be work, who knows! Ha! I did the National Three Peaks Challenge to raise money for Kirkwood Hospice. To find out more about the challenge, read on!

A Weekend at Autograss Racing – An Outsider’s View

Autograss Racing

Have you ever been Autograss Racing? No? Nor us. Life is all about new experiences, right? I (Joel) have a philosophy of “don’t knock it until you’ve tried it”. You don’t really know what something is like until you’ve tried it, like fishing. Fishing looked boring, but I couldn’t categorically say it was boring until I tried it. Trying it confirmed it was boring. Sorry, fishing fans! Ha! Anyway, we went to an Autograss racing weekend…

The Beautiful B3306 Road Trip Cornwall

I read about this great little road trip on the north Cornish coast here and thought we’d give it a go. We lived in Plymouth at the time so it wasn’t not too far away to go for a quick weekend away. Stacey is from Cornwall but has never driven the road before. I’d go as far to say she’s seen more of Cornwall since we’ve been together than during her entire existence before we met.
