Frank Burns tour of Japan

Having retired from a life in education, Frank Burns set about exploring the world on two wheels. In his own words, "on a bicycle, you discover the 'diamonds in your own backyard' as you cycle the lanes and byways of your home area, and further afield the 'distant jewels' of lands yet to be explored."

We are delighted to announce that Frank will be at our Whitwell store on Thursday 21st May at 6:30pm, to present and discuss his recent End-to-End tour of Japan.

The story includes all the thrills and spills of that adventure, the huge variety of places he slept in, the gales and rain storms, the freezing temperatures in the north, the hundreds of tunnels, the accident that nearly scuppered the whole project ......and much much more.

The kindness and generosity of the Japanese people will surpass all of the above, as will the stunning landscapes, as I travelled from the sub-tropical south to the sub-arctic north, where the skiing season was still in full swing. Come an enjoy the vicarious experience.
