This is a clip of Nick in the lead (on the Isle of Wight team) doing what he does best (he is in the light blue gear):
The first one shows the start of the race:
After a couple of laps there is already an accident, the front of a guy's bike has snapped off (he still lives):
Part 2 coming soon.

It was a brilliant race - Nic and Kieran (from the Isle of Wight team) managed to keep on top of the game. Sadly Guernsey took gold, leaving us in 5th and 7th. However, they did extremely well, set a very good pace and entertained us all. Well done lads!

And not forgetting...pictures!
*Yes, there was an accident - the front of a man's bike snapped when he crashed into the fence (I believe). He had a few cuts and bruises, but he lives to fight another day.
I will post up a few short video clips in the next day or so. Keep your eyes peeled (that, is a weird saying...and a little gross too).

I was surfing the internet (on my super slick surfboard) and I found this:
The first thing I look at is the image – a cross section of a tree trunk. What tickles my interest is the footprint incorporated into the rings of the tree trunk. It is such a simple idea that really gets to the heart of what the features of woodland walks are – trees (there is lots of them) and walking! I think the autumn brown implies a muddy texture (a common trait for this particular season) that resembles the ground upon which you walk on.
The typeface looks fairly sophisticated for a walking logo, I would have expected something more rugged looking. Then again, maybe the woodland walks in Burlingham are less hilly/rough and more easy going on the feet.
I would be interested to hear from someone who lives in or around Burlingham as to what the walks are like there.
We now come to the target audience. This is just a thought: you can tell the age of a tree by how many rings it has, and with that in mind I think that the logo is aimed at people in their late 30’s to early 50’s. I am not implying that it directed at old people, it is more aimed at experienced walkers who simply wish to enjoy the pleasure of a stroll amongst the wildlife of Burlingham. This could be aimed at families, for a similar reason – they want to enjoy a lovely walk in which they can spend time together talking and possibly stop off at some point to sit down and eat the food they have brought along with them.

If you have any comments or thoughts about what I have said, please leave me a comment.

Yes, I have just started building a new train station (on Minecraft, not in real life…just wanted to clarify that). I’m not going to say to much about it other than it will be a station made up from 2 seasons (Winter and Summer). It’s in a very basic stage at the moment (as the pictures show):
Update: Just to spice things up a bit, there’s a big cave with zombies in just below the ground where I am building the station. Joy. At least there are no Creepers…

Incase that doesn't stop you sleeping tonight, try looking at them in (traditional) 3D:
In the space of a few seconds, this big old party got bigger - one more Creeper popped along. Well, it has been nice knowing you all.
