In 2006, Hans Rey and Steve Peat did a weeklong campervan trip around Ireland, visiting 30 pubs and also doing a bit of bike riding. Hans had seen photos of the famous Cliffs of Moher that stand 200 metres over the Atlantic on the west of Ireland. He wanted to ride the small rocky ledge with a rock wall to one side and an empty void to the other; in places, there was less than eight inches for a wheel to roll along. The consequences of a mistake were about as serious as it gets. I was pretty scared of the idea, but Hans was 100% confident that he could do it safely and Steve was comfortable on the wider section behind. I was very happy to pull my head back in from the cliff edge when it was done.

Fees and duties on non-UK deliveries: If you are ordering outside the UK, please be aware you may have to pay tax, duties or other fees on delivery. We use a professional fulfilment company to help ensure smooth postage and prepare any necessary paperwork, but since Brexit on 1 Jan 2021, some EU and even rest of world customers have reported having to pay a (seemingly random) fee on delivery. This has never happened before and should not be happening, but for the time being there doesn’t seem to be a solution to the problem. Sorry for any confusion or complications during this period of unprecedented change – we hope Britain and the countries it exports to will soon smooth out any issues.
