Vlog 003: Dig In At The Dock cyclocross 2017

I recorded this video at the last ever Dig In At The Dock Cyclocross race in Bo’ness at the end of February 2017.

The race had grown to become a very big, successful and popular event – one of the biggest races on the Scottish calendar, with arguably the best atmosphere. It was much loved and will be missed. The organisers are stepping down after it has perhaps become a victim of its own success, with a tented village, band, printed programme and great course features to set up, and several bags of dog dirt to uplift before the race.

Luckily Davie Hamill isn’t stepping back from race organisation entirely, as he explains towards the end of this video. It’s quite long, which in itself is an homage to Davie’s own video blogs. See if you can spot any other tributes to the original ‘Dig In’.

Vlog 001: Active Travel

In my first ever video blog, I do a bit of ‘active travel’, first cycling to work, then taking my bike on the train to Edinburgh for the afternoon. A look at integrated transport in Scotland.

It was interesting to chat with Stirling Cycle Hub and I was grateful that Suzanne came on video at a moment’s notice. They have been doing good work at Stirling Train Station for several years now. I hope to get back there soon to do more audio or video content.
