Sent to Coventry!


I came across this place called Parkes, twinned with Coventry. Not much of a recommendation in my book! It started to rain about an hour before I got there, and stopped about an hour afterwards. Maybe they’ve got more in common that I realised!

Anyway, suffice to say that the joys of both cities have been sampled. My life is now complete! (And THAT, is British whit at its finest!).

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!

  1. Parkes is home to a large sat tracking dish, famous for being where the moon landing TV transmission was received. There was a movie made about it.

  2. Hiya Mark, was just looking at your live tracking – isn’t England thata way – i.e heading west instead of going via NSW?! All looks good. Safe riding. Cheers
