    This "trip report" cannot truly convey the sheer fun that I had on this my first ever cycling tour in the wonderful cycling heaven that is Holland.

    It had been casually mooted between us (John Price (Sandman) and me (DannyC)) in conversation during the 2015 Zombie-Fest that we could be brave and take our home-made trikes across to Holland for a long-weekend for some fun in the world's most bike-friendly country which seemed like a good idea, so we made plans accordingly.

    As the due date got closer and word of our intention spread to more northern reaches of the UK (where men wear flat-caps and keep racing pigeons and small racing dogs), a third AZ member, Paul Needham, (Stormbird) enquired whether there was any room for an additional person to join the party. Hardly had the word “Yes” been uttered when a follow-up question, "Wouldn't it be better to go for longer to make the most of all the costs involved?" arose.

    Subsequently, I found myself explaining to my wife that what I had sold to her as a "long-weekend" was now an eight-day adventure.

      its scary to see it was so long ago, must be time I head out that way again, but first a paragliding trip in Turkey then Croatia, then lets see what happens.
      Touring on a trike with friends is probably the best experience one can have

    Re: Tour-ettes trike syndrome.

    So it was with some sadness that I dismantled the Wonky-Donkey today.
    All wheels preserved for future projects, and some of the frame components

    I've had KFW - Kentucky Fried Wrist. Happened about 20 years ago. I used to wear a rugged metal watch religiously. One day I was under a truck torching

    The ES forum was down for a few days, so I only visited it today. Thanks for the info on Doctor Bass. His threads have some good stuff.
