  1. Thanks Gary, great to hear from someone who has done a similar thing. I wonder did you wear ww2 battledress? the idea of pedalling in boots on hills with no gears using original sliding peg pedals and wearing old rough materials appeals to my masochistic side! ( I ran 65 miles to Pegasus bridge for the 65th anniversary.) might hide a pair of cycling padded shorts underneath though for this ride! any ideas where I can get hold of repro clothing - I might have an original Denison smock.

  2. Hi I am new to the forum so thank you for welcoming me in. I only own a BSA Airborne Folding Bicycle, a very rust pitted sad looking yoke so far, but I am rejuvenating it. My aim is to ride it to Ranville, Normandy for DDay75 next 6th June, from the site of RAF Broadwell Airfield, Oxfordshire, about 100 miles, in memory of my Grandfather (1Royal Ulster Rifles, 6th Airborne Div.) who was killed June 7th 1944. I will use the original frame but wheels and tires will be later replacements, brooks leather saddle and if I can the original 'sliding peg' pedals. I will also dress in appropriate repro battledress and boots, and may use my Grandfather's original Denison smock. Any advice? Any experience of riding a parabike that far? best wishes James
