EV­ERY YEAR, FOR THE TOUR OF ARA – A SIX- DAY, 870KM GRAVEL RACE – WE TRY AND HELP OUT IN THE COM­MU­NI­TIES WE TRAVEL THROUGH. SINCE THE TOUR WAS IN WIN­TER THIS YEAR, WE DE­CIDED TO AS­SIST THE EL­DERLY IN THE TINY OUT­POST OF MIDDELPOS. I OR­DERED 35 BLAN­KET, BEANIE AND SCARF SETS FOR THEM IN A RANGE OF WON­DER­FULLY BRIGHT COLOURS. WHILE THE TOUR OF ARA IS RACED EX­CLU­SIVELY ON VIN­TAGE STEEL ROAD BIKES, OUR MOD­ERN OMNIUM CARGO BIKE CAME IN HANDY LEAD­ING UP TO THE EVENT, TRANS­PORT­ING EVERY­THING FROM THESE BLAN­KETS TO THE CHEESE AND WINE FOR OUR TRA­DI­TIONAL DAILY FIN­ISH- LINE SNACK TA­BLE.
