Originally British, I’ve spent the last 25 years traveling the world scratching out a living as a freelance programmer. It’s less satisfying than building fences, which is what paid the bills back in 1973, but provides plenty of material about which to toddle off a few paragraphs.

 A Question of Kneed (Part I)A Question of Kneed (Part I) by Mike Jennett

 Wheels on the bike go round and round 28: AvalonWheels on the bike go round and round 28: Avalon by Mike Jennett
One might be forgiven for thinking that, after two specific hotel tales and several references to the mixed state of accommodations as we pedal our way across the country, all material had been exhausted.Not so.
 Wheels on the bike go round and round 27: SundayWheels on the bike go round and round 27: Sunday by Mike Jennett
This has nothing whatever to do with riding a bike across America but, as we pedalled through a closed near-ghost town the other day, someone remarked that it felt like Sunday and my mind travelled back in time a generation to another era…

It’s raining.I’m alone in a Dairy Queen.I think it’s Tuesday.By tomorrow night in Topeka, we’ll have passed the halfway point, both in miles and time. That’s around 1,70
 Wheels on the bike go round and round 25: WalmartWheels on the bike go round and round 25: Walmart by Mike Jennett
Walmart – savior of the masses.There, I said it. I don’t care what you think, I like Walmart and K-Mart and any other mart that rescues me from wasting my weekend. Do you think it’s fun, trudging around ten differe
 Wheels on the bike go round and round 24: Non-Quality InnWheels on the bike go round and round 24: Non-Quality Inn by Mike Jennett
We are now almost half way across the United States. Each day blends into the previous and most are little more than a pedal slog to reach the next town.Yes, there are odd restaurants that stand out, nights to be remembered
 Wheels on the bike go round and round 23: Door DilemmaWheels on the bike go round and round 23: Door Dilemma by Mike Jennett
It’s only been 2 weeks but every hotel blurs into one.Doesn’t matter whether it’s a Super 8, a Comfort Inn or a Holiday Inn - they’re all clones. The town is of no importance. The day does not matter.
 Wheels on the bike go round and round 22: Flat TiresWheels on the bike go round and round 22: Flat Tires by Mike Jennett
Tracy proclaimed that four minutes is all it takes to deal with a flat tire.That minimalist period probably assumes all tools are ready to hand, that the unfortunate flatee replaces the tube instead of patching it and uses a CO2 inj
 Wheels on the bike go round and round 21: Taking It EasyWheels on the bike go round and round 21: Taking It Easy by Mike Jennett
