I'm pretty sure that's Joff.

He should be returning from his round the world Penny Farthing tour on the 9th Nov.  :o

Roger the Hilldodger recently had this message from him:
"The plan is to finish this ride on the 9th of November at 1pm in Greenwich Craft market in London, looking forward to a pint in the coach!"
If it ain't broke, fix it 'til it is...

He's nearly home!  We need to do something to welcome him back.  Perhaps we could could get to Greenwich...
Getting there...

I was trying to remember his name... Recently spotted in NYC, by Bikesnob (scroll down quite a long way), although he obviously wasn't recognised.
Life is too important to be taken seriously.

And the British flag on the back makes sure everyone knows he's eccentric!   ;D

After he set out (on a failed rtw attempt) from an event we did in Leicester in 2003, someone rang in to radio 2 to ask "why the **** is someone weaing a pith helmet riding a penny farthing down the A1?"  ;D ;D ;D

This isn't just a thousand to one shot. This is a professional blood sport. It can happen to you. And it can happen again.
