BOTM: ONE TO GO - part 3

Andy Kessler - 29-Nov-2017
After Gerard's last blog broke our comment record it's really time to get outside.

If you have spend all your money with Black Friday, Cyber Monday or Green Whatever then now its the time to go bike-packing and really think about what is important in life: For me personally that's health, family, friends, a job you like (ok I have no job - its rather a mission), a bike and nature...I have always liked the simplicity of getting from A to B with a bike. I think it's the perfect speed. Not too fast like a car and not as slow as hiking. You still get in contact with people and with what's around you but you see a lot of new stuff and you really get around. I have crossed many countries with a bike - most of it is a while ago but I still like to do shorter multiple day trips. 

Next year we will do at least two trips also where you can join and ride with us. One will be the legendary Crossfondue which I want to make a 2 day trip and the other one will be a 3 day stage trip somewhere in France. We keep you posted.

Actually I got a bit distracted from the 3rd part of this months"ONE-TO-GO" BOTM. After the gallery its time for the specifications: here we go... 9,2 kg not bad a for this tractor....

Comments & Questions


What a great bike. I know I shouldn't be amazed but, when you look at all the off road options, your bikes are head and shoulders above the rest. In fact, a bike like the One+ makes me rethink what I would want in a bike. Additionally, I really enjoy the updates you and Gerard write for us. Your enthusiasm for bicycling, in general, is contagious. Thanks again.
