Tony fixes the bike

27th October 2018 and Welford in Leicestershire, UK, is the first destination, on the first day of my first ever cycle-touring adventure. It’s only about ten miles from my departure point in Lutterworth, but it’s an important milestone – the adventure is underway!

Ten miles was enough to discover a few niggling mechanical issues but luckily I met Tony, on his narrowboat at Welford marina, with a van full of tools and a natural mechanical ability.

He willingly and competently fixed a ‘clicking’ wheel bearing, relocated water and fuel bottles on the bike and straightened a bent tent peg.

Thanks Tony.
