A View From The Cycle Path)
A tour, two tenth anniversaries, and a very sad computerized SMIDSY
David Hembrow Saturday, 2 July 2016
Ten years ago today, my friend Terry and myself started our ride from John o’Groats to Land’s End in the UK. While we rode, I sent one photo per day to the 12 year old daughter Eliza from my phone (using MMS – remember that ?) and she wrote up the ride as we were on the road. When I got home, Eliza said she’d like to do the same thing and to be honest the thought of that actually horrified me. As I wrote about before, we had many close calls during our tour and I didn’t want my daughter exposed to the risk. However, the desire to go on such a tour remained with her.
Brexit special !
Yes, I know the brexit fallout has been getting everyone down. It’s affected us too. It’s also pushed up prices for British customers. We’d like to help by sending British customers food parcels. While stocks last, if you spend over €30 (ex VAT) in the DutchBikeBits.com webshop and use the “brexitfood” code at the checkout then you can add a bag of bicycle shaped pasta to your order for free. You don’t have to be British to get free pasta. This offer is available worldwide.
