    Two amazing guys.......

    I just had the Malay guy, Tzuo,( he posts on here) staying with me as he cycles around the world. And as we are working on his bike, my old mate Bill Nickson. the ex British champion turns up.




    Tzuo cycled across America in 38 days and is now on the road heading for Holland to pick up the Rhine and then to follow the Danube on his way to Istanbul. Then he will head home to China and Malaysia

    His blog is here
    www.crazyguyonabike.com/doc/longwayhome

    Bill won the Milk Race ( Tour of Britain) and rode in the TDF.

    Like I said, two amazing guys.

    cheers

    Tzuo is, quite simply, the greatest.

    PS - Are you sure it isn't pronounced "zhee-bee" with the accent on the second syllable?

    I quite agree about Tzuo, I had a great couple of days with him, planning the next legs of his trip, and buying clothes in charity shops

    Then riding out of town with him and showing him some bike trails before he had to get back on the road.

    I can finally get and eat on the table now as all the maps and books have finally been moved.

    I look forward to seeing how his new bar we made to hold his lights hold up.

    PS
    I pronounce it GeeBee, that's what I was told it was. No problem with how others want to pronounce it though.
