Papa Smurf, Donkey, now you need a Penguin from Madagascar!
The unwilling rider and the one who leaves each control in turn without reluctance, with no desire to come back, obviously cannot be making the same journey, even though their brevets are identical.

Riding along on the tandem with my son recently, he mentioned casually, I just saw a £20 note. He didn't sound  very excited about it so I thought for a second, then decided not to leave it to chance: sure enough there it was !

Earlier this summer, while we were out on the tandem, Mrs eck espied a red Speciaized BG track mitt, RH only. So, if anyone finds a LH one, I'm sure we could come to some arrangement.  :-\
It's a bit weird, but actually quite wonderful.

Fell off the bike on the back of a car, presumably.

It's Wigan football rattle.  You hold the pedal and swing the crank.  You get the same wrist exercise as a normal rattle but without waking the team up.

Camping, mate.  Travelling light.  Remember the Cranes sawed off the handles of their toothbrushes?
Getting there...
