Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Has anyone ever been on one of these? Here's one for my bucket list. It is a pedal powered way of travelling for a group of eight people. Everyone faces inward so you can have your own party whilst travelling. It looks a bit like a dinner party on wheels. They follow particular routes around London and are usually hired out to groups for a evening out.

I think they come with a driver who probably is in charge of steering and applying the brakes. It looks great fun. All I need now is to persuade a few friends to join me.


  1. That DOES look like fun! :-)

  2. They have one of those in Bend, Oregon. It's a traveling bar which the patron have to pedal. One way to work off those beers...

  3. In Amsterdam this is not fun at all, it is called a beer bike and several accidents have happened already. Shouting drunken students cause a lot of hassle for the traffic along the canals.

  4. That would be fun. Wishing you lots of blessings and good health... Happy New Year to you and yours!

  5. That's a more sophisticated version of the Belgian Cuistax http://vimeo.com/15771253 which is only used at the Belgian coast. It exists only in Belgium, because it is a protected invention. It exists since people can think ! Good idea for London !!

  6. I would totally sign up for an outing on one of those! FUN!!!
