With the placing of the order for the new touring bike – see previous post – the fuse has been lit on the firework of a new cycle tour. But to where? And when? Tentative plans have been discussed over the past few months here on CyclingEurope.org but in the back of my mind, I knew that if I didn’t replace poor old Reggie – another long trip is beyond him I’m afraid – none of them would come to fruition. Now that he has (nearly) been replaced, the ball is back in my half of the court.

Yesterday I received an online alert about an article on YesCycling.com – ‘a buyers guide to the cycling world‘ which featured a reference to ‘…on a Bike Called Reggie‘. I went to investigate and discovered not just one reference, but three! Here’s what was said about each of […]
…which, alas, still involves spending money. Much of my time over the past couple of weeks has been spent poring over the Koga Signature website (see posts passim). I think it’s fair to say that I have now reached a point of having convinced myself that it is […]
So… Tadcaster. Small market town between Leeds and York on the River Wharfe, famous for its breweries. Until a few weeks ago, a town that I had never previously visited. Under the blue sky of a crisp Friday morning in late March, it’s an attractive place, especially as […]

This advertising campaign encouraging young Germans to wear helmets when they cycle has been causing a stir in the Fatherland… …with some saying it is sexist. Yet, as the posters above reveal – you can view the full set here – male models feature just as prominently as […]
