I'd like that Swiss Army Bicycle, but I don't have $2,000 to spare. I wonder whether or not the Australian War Memorial could be persuaded to purchase it?

Well, last year we did it on the Queen's Birthday weekend. By midday it had gotten a little warmer than expected, although we did start off with some rather... British weather.

Hi Martin, I met a lady a few days ago riding an authentic Swiss Army bike, they are something to behold. This one had the original name plate/serial number etc which is a thick and wide alloy casting rivetted to the rear brake bridge, and the chainwheel was very heavy (around 5/16" thick) with matching chain looking more like something fdrom a small motorcycle! She said she had friends in Switzeralnd who had sent it to her. The very high mounted mudguards are a distinctive feature.

Garryw - could you get her friends to send me one too? LOL!
