My daughter has just turned 7. We do the school run on my Surly Big
Dummy. If we hadn't have to go and partake in academia we would be in Russia, nearly the Black Sea, the Med, Scandinavia, Greenland, Africa...

Nice pics!

Perhaps, with those front lights pointing heaven-ward, your prayers may be answered :-)

Neat!
I think my mileage this year is much the same, although without having two passengers on the back!

Perhaps you could add the flags of the relevant countries onto your bunting, once you've 'reached' them?

Modified and sorted now. Air hose needed to stop them bouncing off angle. Loads of car drivers fitting all over the show for months till I realised...

Whoops!

Got a bit carried away clicking to see what my circle would look like in different parts of the map!

Great idea. Used to collect bubble gum flag cards in the 80s. I tour with the kids too and our bikes wear our birth flags. African one for me. Gloucestershire for oldest daughter and Somerset one for the youngest.

I'd head for the Black Sea. Up the Rhine and down the Danube, wheels in the footsteps of Patrick Leigh-Fermor. I've dreamed of something like that ever since reading his book. Maybe next year... Though if it's cheese you're after, England's one of the best places to be, I reckon.
