My Favourite Thing About The HandleBards:

Cycling. It’s the most rewarding way to see the world and the best way to meet all sorts of wonderful and wacky people!

If Shakespeare Was Alive Today:

How accurate were we with Shakespeare in Love?

The Biggest Adventure I've Ever Had:

Accidentally walking into a herd of elephants, or perhaps the HandleBards first ever cycle when my bicycle broke and our director fractured his coccyx, although very different, both were equally as unexpected and those are usually the best kinds of adventures.
