The Cycling Europe Podcast returns with a new touring bike special. Andrew P. Sykes visits CycleSense in Tadcaster, Yorkshire to pick up his new Koga Signature WorldTraveller bicycle and chats to the owner David Stainthorpe about his purchase. We hear from Koga brand ambassador Alee Denham from the […]
There are clearly going to be quite a few posts about the new bike. Apologies… First up is me ‘unboxing’ the Koga WorldTraveller-S. Not actually ‘unboxing’ the bicycle – that was done by CycleSense in Tadcaster – just me examining all the bits and pieces that came with […]
Just received an exciting tweet from CycleSense in Tadcaster. She’s arrived a week early! I’ve now spoken to Dave who runs the shop and I’ve arranged tomorrow as hand-over day. Expect a few photos from the cycle home tomorrow afternoon… Just as I ordered!
So my seven nights on board the Fred. Olsen operated MS Brabant have come to an end. I will be very honest; I’ve always been a little dismissive of cruise ships and the cruising fraternity in general. Cycling along the Mediterranean coast in 2013 I would often come […]
