We have been asked to talk about our trip and show some more of our photos so we have arranged two shows.
One in Hallbankgate and one in Carlisle.
Saturday 13th July at the Hallbankgate Lacy Thompson Hall at 7.00pm
There will be a bar selling wine, beer and soft drinks. Seating will be informal – café style. We will cycle at breath taking speeds through 15 countries in the first hour and hopefully arrive at the Great Wall of China and then after an interval we will amble more slowly south through Laos, Thailand and Malaysia to Singapore from where we’ll gently float back to England. Then it’s over to you and we’ll try to answer whatever questions you want to throw at us.
There will be a box for donations which will go towards a new ‘catering size’ microwave for Hallbankgate Hub.
Friday 19th July at The Cornerstone Café.
62-66 Denton St Carlisle CA2 5EH at 7.00pm
Teas and coffee will be on sale. The evening will kick off at 7.00pm with a talk by Sam about his electric bike conversion which has unintentionally become his second car and has already done over 2300 miles. After an interval, at 8.00pm we will take you on a whistle-stop, hair raising ride through 15 countries from Hadrian’s Wall to the Great Wall of China. There will then be an opportunity for questions.
We’ve been home over a month now and this is a great chance to get to see and thank some people who contributed to this blog and kept our spirits up with their comments.
These talks are obviously aimed at local people but if you’re further away and feel like jumping on your bike or even jumping in your car to come and see us – don’t hesitate, there’s a bed waiting for you here!
Warmest wishes to all our friends, Peter and Christine
