Sharing, caring and cycling
At the end of December I wrote this blog offering the use of my touring bike and equipment to someone that wanted to go on an adventure but couldn't. I was very happy that the message got spread far and wide. I even had someone apply from America!
The idea for this came as I wanted to bring my bike with me to Australia and New Zealand but I couldn't due to baggage allowance. This made me pretty upset, and I then thought, well how must people feel if they don't have a bike at all to start with. So the idea of allowing people to share my bike was born...
My message thankfully reached out to exactly the kind of people that I wanted it to. Some people wanted to take the bike on long, far adventures, and others on small, more local trips. I have managed to work it so I can offer my bike to three separate people that are going to take my bike on shorter journeys. I am very excited by each of the journeys they are taking and the reasons behind them. I will follow up this blog with another sharing the details of their plans.
If you contacted me about borrowing my bike you should have received an email from me, I have responded to all of the applicants individually, so if you haven't seen a response from me please check your junk mail.
If you have done something similar to this, or are intending to share your assets with others, I would love to hear all about it. Please share your story with me.
Keep sharing everyone. Much love. x

Hi Emma, I'd like to ride your bike. I'm planning a ride round the Cornish coastline here in the UK and your trusty steed would be the ideal tool to use. Glen

Hi Glen, I would love to help you out too but unfortunately I have already chosen the people that will borrow my bike. Good luck with your trip. :)
