The bike has been picked up & I think it unlikely that I'll see it again so there was a glint in my eye as I said farewell. I would just like to mention the hospitality offers by a Slovakian family who feed and watered me and made a couple of trips to the local hospital and have even paid for the taxi to Bratislava for my flight home. I could not have been treated better. So I'll be returning with a case of English wine. I guess it's time to think about a replacement bike!!!
