Do you dream of traveling somewhere by bike? Going on a cycling adventure? But missing the main piece of equipment? Well, look no further. I am donating the use of my bike to someone wanting to go on a journey sometime in 2016 between February and May.
I hate the thought of anything being wasted. 'Sharing's caring' is one of my favourite phrases. So, as I will be out of the country traveling for the next few months I would like to see my bike not sitting in a garage rusting but out and about facilitating adventure!
In the summer, I cycled from Manchester to the Dolomites and back on this bike, and it was the best thing I have done in my life. The biggest expense of the trip was the kit I needed. Not everyone can afford a bike, panniers, tents etc. I would love to help out someone that would otherwise not be able to complete an adventure like this. My budget after buying all the kit worked out at less than £5.00 a day and I am sure it could go lower.
You don't need to have dreams of leaving the UK or even your own county. Your adventure might be two days or two months. The ideas are limitless... ride to visit all your relatives, cycle Lands End to John O'Groats, make a lap of one of the national parks, tour a coastline...
If you are interested in taking my bike on a journey, all you need to do is send me a message through my contact page, telling me when, where and why you are planning on going, and a little bit about yourself. If a few people apply that want to go away at different times then hopefully there is an opportunity for more than one trip to come from this. Entries must be made before January 15th.
(Kit included: bike, panniers and handlebar bag, repair kit, tent, sleeping bag and mattress. All mine and all used but sharing is caring! All must be collected from Cheshire. I am 164cm tall and the bike fits me but will fit shorter or taller too.)
