Graham is more than happy to have anyone come visit me and examine/test ride the Tandem without obligation. He lives in the Hayes area, Middlesex.

As there is a BHPC meet in Hillingdon on the 12th April it may be a good opportunity to visit him (if the tandem is still available then!) either prior the races or after, the bike will not be going to the races, but it might be arrange it to be there if a serious buyer wanted to see it there as only 5 minutes ride away.

Thank you for looking!
Take care,
Barry & Graham ;-)

Blowing My Own Trumpet! :-D

How Do All ;-)

Just after Xmas I received my copy of the BHPC (British Human Power Club) Magasine, LaidBack Cyclist, and was grinning from ear to ear when I saw the front cover, Yes, Me! Piloting my Cuckoo Raaa, Uber Low Racer around the Hillingdon Cycle Circuit during one of last years races.


Well that's my trumpet blown and my ego inflated a little more than it normally is! :-D

By the way the Cuckoo Raaa Bike and Raaaa Fairing are up for sale here:
You never know, you too could be looking just as cool as I am here!

Thanks to Jonathan Woolrich for taking such a fantastic picture! and the BHPC editor for defacing the magazine with my Fugly Mug ;-)

Take care,
