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.
He has produced some cool videos showing the Moulton in all it’s glory, including “It’s not about the bike” shown below.
While at the Show we had an interesting meeting with Alex Moulton who was there promoting his recently introduced AM series of suspended small wheel bikes. It was an interesting meeting for Mike and I as we had been selling a lot of the AMs and had, up to that point, sold more than any other dealer in the World except one in Germany. We were very enthusiastic about the bikes but had one major criticism, that being that the range of gears available with its single chainring set-up wasn’t suitable for loaded touring, particularly in mountains. We had modified a number of them with brazed-on front derailleurs and double chainwheels and also painted a few in brighter, more appealing colours than the standard grey. In fact Ian Austen was riding a bright yellow AM modified with a wide range of gears. Dr Moulton thought we were ruining his bike design and we got into quite a heated argument. He contended that his standard seven gears were ample for any type of riding. I often wonder if he would have changed his mind if he had seen the terrain we were to ride over in the following few days.
