Mr. Fred Birchmore

Amazing Fred Birchmore marks 98th birthday

Peace :)


  1. Wow, he's had an interesting life. I'd like to see another picture of that bike.

  2. Golly, I was mystified by the post until Rat Trap commented at which point I clicked on the link. So, the question is: did he wear a helmet and high vis clothing when he rode around the world?

    Seriously, I think cycling helps keep you alive and the article supports my theory.

  3. @Myles
    It would be nice to see a few more pictures of that bike, indeed!

    I agree cycling is a healthy habit. I am not sure this guy had any hi-vis clothes. I guess back in the day, you were visible, hopefully because people didn't drive like bats out of hell.

    Not sure about the helmet but I think he at least had a nice Mexican hat :)

  4. I think his life would make for an interesting biography.


Thank you for your visit and comments. I read all comments and I appreciate them all.
