Jasper from Guildford
Jasper and his Mum, Lisa, collected one of our Surrey based Viking tandems at the end of May 2018. She added a video to our Facebook site at the start of June and wrote, "Very enthusiastic "Go!" on our first attempt but Jasper keeps wriggling his feet out. Tried bolting his shoes to pedals but actually the cranks are too long. Looks like they are 175mm, when kids his size normally have 120! I love the feel of the bike though - very smooth."

Thank you so much for making biking possible for our family."
