Who would set off to the Hebrides before winter is hardly over, on a three-wheeled
recumbent, towing a trailor containing a tuba, enduring 70 mph winds, staying in
a cold hostel with no power?
Best of luck Jon Hodkin on your mission to share your enthusiasm for cycling, travel
and music - by all accounts it was appreciated by the kids in all the schools you
visited. (Also you could maybe consider trading in the tuba for a set of bagpipes
- it would make life easier!)
