Ah, rain rain go away. It has been raining non-stop today here in Bern, so my grand plans to get out into the city were thwarted. Instead, I played around with Patricia’s Mac computer and made a wee video clip…

Video on Youtube

Here’s to hoping the weather sorts itself out for departure towards Luzern tomorrow.

How come after so long not living in Southland you still have a Southland accent?

@ Aunty Les – That's called preserving one's heritage. Pride in one's upbringing…

I was thinking that the rolled r's have got worse!

Still bonkers but then it adds a new dimension, when you finally arrive in UK you probably need to change to a canoe as it's tipping down here and has been for about a week.

Hi Rob,

Good to see some "live" video of you again. I guess that resistance to inclement weather is one advantage that the bike has over the board. Hopefully sunnier days are ahead for you.

I was digging the music in your video too. Care to share the source?

Chris J, the music is Lebanese Blond by Thievery Corporation.

Great to see another RollRolls rider! I got mine in Sydney last year also inspired by Dave Cornthwaite.

A couple of tech points, Try using grease instead of skate lube in your bearings- I doubt it would slow you down much and be more waterproof. Also have you considered the larger 150mm rollsrolls wheels. I have these on mine and find they roll over anything – that is on my long journeys to the local shops….

All the best
