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...
