Finding the trusted bike for touring

©Barrty Sandland/TIMB – A Dawes frame just means a serious cyclist. The brand is famous with the Brits, both as vintage and modern day.

“I found this in a shop in Brussels. I was looking for  a bike to travel with.”

Photographer’s notes: I always imagine Dawes riders to be British. Never any other country. Always with an accent. I rode up to this local and started off with a British rant only to be met with a blank stare. We switched to French soon after.

But I still think Dawes bikes are owned by British people.
