My bike on board the Batumi - Odessa crossing.  My task for the next 36 hours is to track down the owner of the Thorn
with the Brooks and the Warmshowers stickers - somewhere we have another cyclist on board and he's almost certainly British.

What's more, the two of you appear to have identical taste in rear racks (bar colour)! Enjoy Ukraine.
At some point in the ride, you might find yourself in Osaka with Spanish speakers where you had expected Edinburgh talking Greek. This does not mean you are lost, or even off route.

"He" could be a "she"!

He could be a she, but I'm guessing not based on the geometry of the bike.  I've been keeping an eye out for any telltale tan lines or bike brands among the truckers at lunch aboard, but haven't seen any.  I certainly haven't seen any 6' when though, so am working on the assumption that he is a he.

Whoever s/he is, his/her taste in rear racks is indeed impeccable.

Intriguing!  I'm hoping there's a element of romance in this situation, the story could make an excellent blockbuster, "Sleepless on the Black Sea"!  Who would you like to play you?

Don't look up look down: Check the shoes.
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

That's going to work well for the blockbuster: camera pans along the floor and stops when it finds a pair of cycling shoes, battered and dusty from many miles hammering across a 'stan.  The camera pans up to reveal that person of Karla's dreams, romance blossoms, the rest is history...  ;D

It turns out he is indeed a he and is indeed 6', but he's French and he bought the bike in Thailand.  I'll award myself a C on the Sherlock scale.

Again, couldn't get my bike in, as queuing on narrow walkway, but the 'Fridays' used the Kings Lynn ferry across the tidal Great Ouse, at the end of last night's ride.    :thumbsup:

I was hoping someone would post a photo of that.  I missed the ferry on account of being in the special needs land-lubbing splinter group.

I just looked for other riders on Strava (Flybys) and there's some excellent photos of the ferry crossing on there.  :thumbsup:

Just came across the thread this evening. I have a few. Here's one from a ride along the North Sea Cycle Route I did with a few mates back in 08/14. We're got the ferry from near Brielle and were heading to the Hook of Holland at the time. Happy daze.

One from the New Forest and Isle of Wight 150km audax in 09/07. The ferry from Lymington to Yarmouth. I spy Rich XAB there with the Dulwich shirt on.

Thanks. Think I've sorted that now.

Photos showing for me.

I have a vague feeling I recognise the bloke in orange behind "Rich XAB with the Dulwich shirt on" in the second photo. Looks like a guy I know (notp) called Andy. Might just be coincidence though.

Craply lit picture of my bike (obscured by someone elses) on the AUkland to Coromandel ferry in January 2016.


That bicycle (Surly LHT) is well ferried now. On that trip, it also went on a river shuttle down the Whanganui River and the North/South Island crossing Wellington to Picton. Closer to home, Lymington to Yarmouth, Portsmouth to Cherbourg and Caen to Portsmouth. Proper sea legs.
