What’s New

An improvement in page load speed from August 2023 with the purchase of Autoptimize Pro plugin. The blog had been very slow and now with Autoptimize Pro the images are being automatically optimized and cached. So far so good, still could be better if anyone has advice I’d love to hear.

The transfer of old posts from Blogger to WordPress has stalled due to my laziness. There are 11 remaining and I will get around to it. Until then apologies for the posts that still are older format.

The blog section previously called the cellar and the vault is now The Museum. Pages are always getting tweaked.

I removed the Euro style cookies notification. Not needed for a non commercial site.

Known Issues

Embed images from Google Maps is broken. A few of my posts had 360 images of roads and these are currently not working and no ETA on a fix.

The Museum pages have a display formatting problem and I am still looking for a solution.

The new image CDN has improved the WordPress problem of images not displaying – but sometimes you will have to reload a page still.

Ad blockers affect page load speed – I have zero advertising so you can speed access by setting my site in your ad blocker to allow all content.


I don’t understand the menus? – look at the site map. (note this site is always evolving)

The site loads slow? – you need at least 4G or broadband to view and see known issues above.

How can I download your GPS routes? – link is in the contact menu.

Do you have a YouTube channel? – No I find GoPro motorcycle videos incredibly boring.
