Welcome to our website!
Also Temporary Site for the Ghost Bike Project
Follow the cycle tour of John (Gumby) and Hilary (Pokey) Gould riding a Tandem from Budapest, Hungary through central Europe to Zurich, Switzerland.
Can 2 people ride 2,000 KM with only a small pannier of luggage space each on a strange looking tandem and still have fun and adventures?
We started at the end of July 2009 and are back home in Australia now safe and well.
It took many months of research to decide that a Bike Friday is the way we want to travel.
A bike than can be dismantled and packed in a suitcase to make the airline part of travel simple.
Please give some thought to the dangers of cycling on the roads and look at the Ghost Bike page...there may be some way you can help.
Feel free to read our log, enjoy the pictures and post your comments.
It can be lonely out on the road and we welcomed messages from people back home.
We also hope to hear from people we meet along the way or just someone who enjoys the journey.
Back building bikes at Pista Bikes in Melbourne and planning our next ride, hopefully USA and Canada.
