This option might be the missing link in my bike-powered visit to Arran & Mull...
The word 'Himalayas' pops into my head whenever I think about this
I know very little about the Himalayas, so where do I start? Geographically and in every other sense?
I usually do self supported, but is a tour company more practical for this?
I've done lots of touring, but only credit card never camping - is that possible?
What are the best times of year?
What don't I know that I don't know?
Talking about solar arrays while cycle touring.

But my 'other' bike is electric and it's just replaced an older ebike. The older one had a front hub motor, so it was obviously electric. Barely any acknowledgement from anyone.
The new one is a crank drive, pretty subtle, and at a glance looks just like any other flat-bar / mudguard / pannier bike - and I get friendly greetings all the time.
I feel like a fraud.

He carried more than me and was going on the China Pakistan India and Nepal
Both bikes did well
He was hyper critical of all his gear and praised his bike no end.
My Raven was great but his was equal or better.

So now the whole of the Meridian area has seen this man's ugly mug and what a fool he has made of himself. He lives in Henley.
Last weekend Play on Pedals Instructors delivered two days of drop-in sessions in George Square, as part of the 2014 Commonwealth Games anniversary celebrations with Glasgow Life.
Children flocked to the Play on Pedals area and over the weekend our Instructors signed in over 90 children, many of whom left being able to ride pedal bikes. Our Instructors, on the other hand left exhausted and in bed by 7pm!
Anne, one of our Instructors was also interviewed by the on-site radio about Play on Pedals, which was broadcast across the Square.
What a fantastic event, celebrating the legacy of the games and demonstrating the enthusiasm of young Glasgow to get cycling!
