We gave Laid Back Rich a great send off from Bikefix on his round the world trip. A bunch of his friends accompanied him on the first leg of his trip and we had dinner in Harwich while waiting for the ferry. You can follow his progress here and he has more pictures here.
His bike was built by us. Its a Bacchetta Corsa with Rohloff hub, Marathon tyres and cable discs. He wanted a steel frame and maximum reliability.
