SPEZI 2015

I think my head has stopped spinning from the ever-revolving SPEZI in Germersheim. Busy, doesn’t really come close to describing it. However, I believe Peter had some pleasure in taking a step back from the position requiring him to record and document the event–I’m certainly looking forward to getting the write up finished before my thoughts evaporate!  Meantime, here’s my signature panorama, taken on a slightly dull day one.

The whole trip could have been a bit easier if we’d had a few bikes to hand, probably with trailers, definitely something to consider for next year. It would also have been wonderful to share the experiences with some more VV readers… and while alone at 4am in Manchester airport the advantages of leisurely and comfortable coach journey became apparent.

Back from Bespoked 2015

I had a great weekend in Bristol at the Bespoked UK Handmade Bicycle Show. Great to meet so many enthusiastic builders, makers and innovators. A show report will be included in the next issue.

Thanks to all the Velo Vision supporters who tapped me on the shoulder for a quick chat and for your warm wishes.

Many people, exhibitors included, reported that it was a very personable, relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere, perfect to meet the makers and discuss bikes – roll on Bespoked 2016!

I have noticed that a good number of people have registered for the new forum and site, which is great. There is also a growing number of people for whom registration has not been completed. I did have an issue with registration, password reset and recovery which I fixed with the help of one member, so if you are one of the people still trying to register, please first try the Lost Password link and see if that now works for you.
