A couple of friends of mine from cycling clubs back in the UK have just embarked on an epic ride. They left South London, toured the UK and Ireland and have just reached France. I am not sure of their actual plans but I believe they are meandering over into Russia, for starters. This is blog worthy enough and so is their wonderful bike, a Pino Tour, made by Hase Bikes.
Look at the amount of gear it can carry! What a beast.
To see what else Hase Bikes get up to visit their site here: Hase Bikes.
Also I am sure that Keith and Tamar would love to share their adventures with as many as possible and their blog can be found here on the Bec CC website: Europe and Beyond
Have a great trip!
