London to Beijing – the Silk Road Talk

Nigel Richardson - London to Beijing

Nigel Richardson gave an excellent talk at Uffington on Sunday about his trip from London to Beijing with Globebusters. Last April a small number of us saw Nigel off from the Ace Cafe on this epic trip, so it was great to get an account of his adventures. Nigel also brought friends to the meeting, some of whom had been with him on the trip so that added to the occasion.

The talk was very well attended, despite the heavy rain and flooding. Riding up from Lambourn on the B4001 the road was like a river and the waves from other vehicles were up over the cylinders on the R1200GS. It made you appreciate how dangerous riding in rivers or on flooded roads can be. Hopefully the last indoor meeting of the season on March 9th will be blessed with kinder weather!
