A bespoke journey Down Under

If you are free, and live locally, do come and join us.

This will be the first of several presentations…….so it may benefit from the freshness that comes with not knowing exactly where the script is going to take me……;0)

    Hello Frank, I would have loved to have come to your talk, but we already have tickets for something else that night. I hope you will be doing another talk before too long.

    • Sheila,
      I’ll be doing another on Monday May 20th at Grafham Cycling, Marlow Car Park, Grafham at 8pm.
      Do come if you can. I’ll copy this to an email for you.

  2. I would love to be a member of the audience but alas it is too far away!

  3. I’d love to be able to be there, Frank, first and foremost to find out exactly what ‘bespoke’ means. It’s very good sounding word anyway. 😉

    Come and do a ride (and presentation) in Amsterdam some time.

    • A bit of ‘poetic licence’ Richard, using an old tailoring term to fit a cycling context….a bit crude, I know.
      However, my new bike frame will be ‘bespoke’. I travelled a couple of hours to meet one of the country’s best frame-builders, in his garden workshop, and he measured me up for a new frame. Very exciting….but it’s a three month waiting list.
      And by the way, if you can put an audience together, I’d be delighted to come and do a presentation! We’ll sort out the logistics of cycling and carrying the presentation kit another time……

    Hi Frank,

    Friday night is, unfortunately, my boarding house duty and I don’t finish until 10pm. Shall be very sorry to miss it, but there we are. Hope it goes well. Only 41 days left !



  5. Really love to be there but we will thinking of you in Peru walking 5,000m up in the inca foot steps. Have a great talk and we will catch up with one of your other talks.
    David and Charlotte.

    • Fenomenal! Qué vaya muy bien! Hope you have a great time………and may the view of Machu Picchu be perfect when you get to the Gateway of the Sun. Frank

  6. Hi Frank,
    I’ll be coming along to Grafham gig and hopefully with some other SNCC folk in tow. Looking forward to it!
