Sorry Jur, no sign of it, and anyway, a few of us went to the Domhof Brewery in Speyer on the Saturday & then sampled the delights of the Bellheimer Brewery in the evening.
Result :- I forgot to charge my camera battery! DOH!

Sorry, I missed you! We were by the entrance to the main halls with my Long-John & various folders.
Yes, I also noticed that there were quite a few marques missing, I had hoped to see the new GoCycle & I did try to get Strida NL to come with us (or get me a new Strida 2-speed to bring along) I had also arranged the loan of an early Swivelhead (now IF Cross) from Mark Sanders, but I just didn't have time to pop in to him to pick it up ;o(
Must get more organised for next year!.............................

The last page has a few of my favourites, firstly, the very tasty looking polished Birdy, I'm very tempted to get one through the bike to work scheme
The very cute 'HPV in a bottle'
The amazing home made 'rat' recumbent folders (& the wooden one)
And the very sporty looking DuoQuest 'side by side' HPV (video here) & Velomobiel.nl website
