We’re running a great special at BikeBagShop.com. All of our Bike Gear Combo discounts are 10% off thru July 7th. This is a great time to get geared up with an Ortlieb, Arkel, Jandd or Vaude package for a big summer adventure.
Talking about our sale brings to mind our BikeBagShop.com sponsered rider James Bowethorpe who is approaching the halfway point of his round-the-world by bike record breaking attempt.
It’s been very interesting keeping up with all of Jame’s trials and travails on his Blog. His journey has been both intruiging and inspiring. From the rough sides of the adventure with misadventures in Iran, battling sickness and crashing into wombats to the moments of meeting people and coming across beautiful scenery viewable on Jame’s Flikr Account.
We we’re amused by the giant stickers someone decided to slap onto the panniers we had managed to get the BikeBagShop.com logos onto. James had been riding through India during thier recent elections and someone realized (like we had) that panniers are a great billboard to send out a message with. Unfortunately, as you can see in the following picture, when james peeled off the sticker it had a detrimental effect on the adhesion of our logos. Who would of guessed that our logos had to be able to withstand getting a sticker that had sat on them for a few days in the hot Indian spring, peeled off?
Despite the misadventures, James is rding strong and making excellent progress. Have a look at the GPS tracking website, Where in The World is James.
