Slide presentation Thursday May 21st

Although this will be feasible for only a small minority of readers of this blog, especially for those of you who live in the East Midlands of the UK, you may be interested in the following.

I will be doing my first slide presentation of my recent End-to-End of Japan on Thursday May 21st at 6.30pm at:

Rutland Cycling (, Bull Brigg Lane, Whitwell Car Park, Rutland LE15 8BL.

The story is going to include all the thrills and spills of that adventure, the huge variety of places I slept in, the gales and rain storms, the freezing temperatures in the north, the hundreds of tunnels, the accident that nearly scuppered the whole project ……and much much more.

But the kindness and generosity of the Japanese people will surpass all of the above, as will the stunning landscapes, as I travelled from the sub-tropical south to the sub-arctic north, where the skiing season was still in full swing. Come an enjoy the vicarious experience.

Hope to see you there!IMAG1259

  1. Frank, why don’t you publish it on SlideShare so we can all enjoy it 🙂

    • Good point…..does it work with powerpoint? The trouble with sharing slides is, they just appear as a series of fairly meaningless photos…….the important bit is the narrated story…some of which, of course, is on the blog itself.

      • Yes, it works with PowerPoint. The trick is develop the presentation do it speaks by itself. Maybe you can considered a modified version for SlideShare.

      • ……I’ll give it some thought. Though I suspect that the blog itself, because of the immediacy of each daily post, will always be a much more effective communicator than any post-ride narrative.

  2. Frank, I take your point, but I think the photos would be interesting to many anyway, I’d certainly love to see them.

  3. Sure wish I could have been there for this, Frank! It sounds like such a “stretching” adventure! Hugs to you and Jenny! Libby
