We’re going again | Upping the ante for 2018 cycling challenge(s)

Prepare yourselves… Another six months of being the boring one on the bike, another six months of Sunday morning Instagram posts around Merseyside, and another six months of testing myself against my inner fat self to shed some weight and raise some money for Prostate Cancer UK. After months debating whether to make the pilgrimage... Continue Reading →

How my mum and dad still inspire me 28 years on…

At seven years old we were asked what we wanted to be when we got older. Amongst the usual answers of astronauts, firemen and the blue Power Ranger (stupid answer, red was much better), I didn't hesitate to tell my teacher I wanted to drive lorries because it's what my Dad did, and I thought...

Spark Flight | Stocksbridge panoramic drone view, Green Moor

This is a short clip thrown together with some left over footage from a recording at the top of Pea Royd Lane, Stocksbridge. It shows a panoramic view of Stocksbridge and Fox Valley from the top of Green Moor. Can you spot your house? Follow on Twitter and Instagram @TheBenShepherd

Spark Flight | Bolsterstone Church and picturesque North Sheffield 

Another short clip filmed over two days (spot the change in the weather) from the centre of Bolsterstone. It focuses mainly on the church and village hall, along with the stunning views that surround this perfect corner of Sheffield.  ​

Spark Flight | Cressbrook Hall wedding venue

Attending a friend's wedding, I couldn't help but have a short flight around the picturesque Cressbrook Hall. It doesn't include any shots of the wedding, instead just taking a look around the venue which was perfect for an intimate service such as this.

Beware of the rubbish insult

Watching a bout of everyday road rage between a driver and a cyclist, I was reminded recently of the closest thing I've managed to the same scenario, and the pain and suffering that it cost me. You see, I'm the first to admit, I might not look 'sculpted' from the back when I'm wearing lycra,... Continue Reading →

Spark Flight | Sheffield’s hidden gem? More Hall and the Ewden Valley

Following on from last week's video of the heart of Stocksbridge, I rooted through some more footage captured on the same day, including this from More Hall Reservoir. Growing up here it's easy to take for granted, but these shots (albeit brief, the drone was still very new) showcase this picturesque location that feels reserved... Continue Reading →

Spark Flight | Stocksbridge with the DJI Spark

The first real attempt at trying to capture some shots around Stocksbridge with the new DJI Spark. Plenty of footage from Green Moor, Bolsterstone and around Bracken Moor has also been captured and will no doubt be edited at a later date.   It's Stocksbridge's famous clock tower and the new Fox Valley development, home...

Back to being a cycling bore… rather than just a bore

Three months removed from crossing the finish line in Amsterdam, my bike has done more mileage being moved up and down the hallway to hoover around it than it has under my own steam. As 2018's models are being released and my eyes open wide at the shiny new frames, new shapes and new specs... Continue Reading →
