The Rumba Ride

It turns out my old friend Pete Mustill, together with his fiddle-playing mate Jim Broadbent John Hymas are setting off to ride from John O'Groats to Lands End, on April Fools day, travelling on recumbent, electric bikes and playing music at a different venue every night, along the way.

Needless to say - apart from the April Fools Day bit - this is all wrong on at least three distinct counts. But, not wishing to appear mean-spirited, I say:

Good luck to you boys. It's not everyone who is called upon to make the same journey on foot and in the right direction.

As my path goes somewhat to the east of theirs, it is possible we won't link up. So, should you find yourself hanging around Westmoreland in mid-April looking for something to do on a Thursday evening, you will be able to choose between:
  1. What I am sure will be a very ordinary evening of music, fun and merriment with Pete and John, somewhere in downtown Carlisle.
  2. A deep philosophical discussion with me over a pint of beer and a bag of cheese and onion crisps at the Black Pig in Haltwhistle.
No contest really
