Thanks to Reg for inventing the phrase

Oddly enjoyed that. Something special about a trip that involves a ferry ... ooh and why did you make Helen go out in front on the windy return?

Lovely :smile: . Pretty stupendous weather at the end there. The dedicated bike tunnel was interesting. Talking of windy returns, I particularly liked the way you christened the hotel room with a 'Boner's bikepacker's fart' at 08:07 :-bd :wink: .After your vid, youtube segued into the Dolls "Davey's Took The Plunge" for some clever reason.

I'd concur with Stu though, making Helen go up front in that wind....tsk

For the record Helen was only up front when being filmed and this was not a wind for drafting as it was very very gusty

Enjoyed that! Took a while for the penny to drop about Gigpacking... :grin:

Loved the awkward silence on the out crossing “are you enjoying yourself...?” :lol:

That's a good watch :smile: If it was that windy when loading the ferry up then what was the crossing like?

You couldn't hear the full-on swearing because of the weather :smile: .

Nice one,

As a dutch man I did not even knew about that tunnel.
Funny to see you biked past offices I worked 5 years ago.

Cheers
