Bikes from other rides




Monday, May 1, 2017


For the start of the next BT I have organised for a police escort out of Camden.
(Clown assisting police at Mayday parade in Zurich)

The next BT will be during the week as Saturdays have proven to be a problem in visiting many libraries and the press are unable to be there.

We will depart Camden at 9.30am on Wednesday the 8th of November and finish on the Friday afternoon.

Once I have confirmed with libraries i will publish libraries, times and dates in case you only are able to join us for part of the tour.

I have just returned from a short tour of  the north and have been able to include some images of scooters and bikes in Europe.  Although not related to motorbikes I have included a picture of a real adventurer who I met at the Valetta Yacht Club christmas party. Sandra Calafato was sailing a thirty foot yacht from Italy to Malta when a freak wave turned the boat 360 degrees. She suffered a broken arm but managed to get control of the boat and continue to sail it to Malta. I made her an honorary member of Biblio Turismo and invited her to join us if she ever sails down under or if we decide to ride the Italian Alps.

More to come. Unfortunately lost my phone in Munich which had lots of great shots of British and French bikes.
