Frank Burns writes about yet another Land’s End to John O’Groats completed on a Moulton.
I wanted to put my Alex Moulton APB21 through its paces and see how it fared on a journey above 1000 miles.
Most people have preconceived notions about small wheeled bikes, and many that I met en route expressed disbelief about its suitability for such a venture, but the reality was that I averaged 85 miles per day (some days were over 100 miles) with a remarkable degree of comfort and speed.
The Moulton’s combination of a well-designed rigid frame, suspension front and rear, and more than adequate gearing, made this a perfect long-distance machine, and one that can be separated into two halves, bagged and carried onto trains as hand-luggage.
Andy Morris is riding from London to Paris, on a Moulton TSR, to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society.
In September 2010 I will be riding 300 miles from London to Paris to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society. But things are never that straight forward – I will be riding my distinctive Moulton bicycle, immediately recognizable by its little wheels.Genius or lunacy? Stick around and find out. Follow my vlogs as I train and participate in this event.Donations large or small to the Alzheimers Society are all gratefully received, just use the address at the end of the video.Thank you for your support.
