An Evening of Adventure 2018 – Friday 21st September

Once again, we have an exciting line-up of inspirational speakers at this ever popular illustrated talk night.

The Adventures of a Bike Called Reggie

Andrew Sykes is a teacher, author, traveler and most of all a cyclist. Oh and also a lover of those quirky, humorous travelogues which meander comically from one adventure to the next.

Throughout his talk Andrew will amuse you with his funny tales and anecdotes of two wheeled travel, as he shares his stories of European adventures on his beloved velocipede – ‘Reggie’.

In 2011 Andrew set off from England to cycle across Europe. Upon reaching the southern tip of Italy, he published his first book – ‘Crossing Europe on a Bike Called Reggie’. Continuing on his European adventure, he embarked on a journey from Greece to Portugal along the Mediterranean coastline; which resulted in his second book, ‘Along the Med on a Bike Called Reggie’.

A third trip from the southern tip of Spain to the northern most point of Norway soon followed, and his latest book, ‘Spain to Norway on a Bike Called Reggie’ was published.

Come and join us for an inspirational evening with Andrew and other fascinating speakers.
