A very enjoyable 1989 BBC 40 Minutes programme about different cyclists.
Nice Bob Jacksons
Two thoughts above all: wow, weren't the road designs even worse in the 1980s; and why don't lorry drivers still keep bikes on board to pop to shops and cafes and so on when they have to take breaks?
Very enjoyable indeed. Josie Dew at 16:00?
Big Josie dew fan do like her books
That took care of part of my turbo session last night, thanks for the link.
LOL .... just started watching and in the beginning, he says that you should take your wife or girlfriend on a tandem for a week and a fortnight, and she is cold wet and hungry, and still your friend, you have a good basis for a married life ....
not sure is the old lady on the back of the tandem looked very happy though
but I've bookmarked to watch the rest tomorrow
Nice to see an old aquaintance , John 'Pinky' Pinkerton (sadly no longer with us), at 8.00 into the film.
'To not have a bike is a crime'. I wonder how the young couple fared on their round the world cycle?
I really enjoyed that, thank you GuyBoden.
The chap with the home made tent looked to be riding a 70's Thompson (Andy Thompson Frame builder I think?). I have an early 80's Orbit Thompson with a very similar logo, made in Sheffield where the old chap came from I think?
Nice Bob Jackson's too.
Could anyone make out what the John O'Groats - Lands End chap was riding?
According to this article, it was a Stan Pike bike. http://www.cyclingweekly.co.uk/news...dburns-record-breaking-end-to-end-1982-211103
