    Just stumbled upon this: for those whose memories extend to the first evening in Dunkirk and can remember the standing joke about cucumbers:
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b09dcd92
    and if you're lucky enough to live in t'frozen north:
    https://www.ents24.com/uk/tour-dates/sir-ken-dodd

    for those without the time to listen to the full programme: here's a taste: "I first saw you 50 years ago....." "You're not asking for your money back are you?" This followed the line: "What a wonderful day for taking off all your clothes and putting on blindfold and walking round a nudist camp trying to shake hands with everyone."

    In Other News - thoughts about next year's Tour have been had: dates, routes, accommodation, recce etc. An announcement will be made via the email list soon, after the other ride leaders have had their say and the plan has been given their thumbs-up.

    A smattering below.
    The rather disappointing breakfast at Dickens Corner, Dover. Not up to their previous standards...

    A ferry, with lots of bikes. And lots of our bikes as well.

    A rather fun bike at the Gekke Fietsen Museum…

    Both a touching memorial and an interesting art project...

    Eijsden. Lovely town, and two lovely evenings...

    When three countries aren't enough for a tour, do a fourth on the rest day…(three nations in one ride!)…
