It was a general comment on the juxtaposition that an "organisation" like velovision organises motorised transportation for people in pursuit of human powered transport.

Of course I realise that most people wouldn't want to spend 2 or 3 days cycling there and back even if they were fit or trying to get fitter (as I was).

Are you going Jeff?

Yes on the bus Ian , I might try a few bikes when I get there if that helps , riding 10 miles in my contraption is hard work never mind 100 miles a day they have to lift me off my race bike so after that amount they would just chuck a blanket over me and call it a day  LOL.

I don't know if you've been before, but I was surprised how few manufacturers had demo bikes to try. The space available to try them was limited and busy with pedestrians as well. I found a couple of hours long enough to see all exhibits and have a chat with some of them. I would have spent more time if I'd been in the market for something - glad I didn't take my credit card otherwise a Troytech bike would have been in my shed now.

I'm going, I went in 2011 and found it a thoroughly enjoyable weekend. Had plenty of time on the test track and looking at exhibits. Although you could do the whole show in a few hours sadly I am someone who can just stand and look at bikes.
 
On a different note I have withdrawn my entry on the London 100 thing next August as they never replied to my email asking if I could ride a Moulton. I am organising the local Origami ride that weekend instead. I want to do something where a man isn't judged by the size of his wheels!

Hi Folks

Jeff.

Hi Martin
if you check out Velovision web site it will tell you all the details and you have to contact steven rose whose email is on the website I believe. Cheers.
