    Trendsetters...

    Seems me, AndyB and other solo travellers are trendsetters for the masses

    "More Britons are choosing to travel on their own – using apps and social media – as it means a holiday without compromises"
    This space deliberately left blank as the author writes too much pretentious bollocks as it is.

    It took about 10 years for the ever decreasing supply of gullible fools to finally dry up meaning I have to do my more interesting bike trips alone.

    I like to think that I introduced a few people to the slightly harsher side of year round bike holidays and at some point I’ll not have any jobs booked in for January/February and might be able to drag some back to the fold

    Good luck with that. One of them has taken up marathons, another is scaring badgers on a mountain bike and the other is too busy worrying (his pension, his children's finances and whether he will still be able to work 80 hours a week after Brexit amongst other things).

    Life is full of potential victims (aka gullible fools) and all it takes is a suggestion that a trip to xxxx would be a laugh and it’s game on. Mention of cheap alcohol, roadkill for dinner and snow enhances the chances of success
