Oh, no. I am losing one of my domestiques!
Barry contacted me a couple of years ago when he arrived here and we have been riding together ever since. But now he is leaving Geneva.
We first rode together in June 2007, and from that very first ride, Barry taught me many valuable cycling lessons.
But most importantly, the lesson I will never forget: Never go riding without knowing where all the bakeries and cafés are located.

In return, I taught Barry to enjoy cycling in the cold:
Here’s a slide show of a few of our adventures. Some more successful (eg. touring through the Alps, watching the Tour de France) than others (eg. taking Bazza to the hospital after a crash, teaching him to cross-country ski).
We will miss you Bazza. Here’s hoping there is lots of good pie in your future.
