Wagtail Ride Along the Crab and Winkle
Wagtail designer Tom Bobbin took his new machine for a spin along the Crab & Winkle Way from Canterbury to Whitstable and back.
He enjoyed a swim (and possibly a couple of craft ales!) en route. The massive 2.1" tyres of the Wagtail just cruised easily over this sometimes gravelly Sustrans route.
The gears proved more than a match for the hills, plus the swept-back bars give a nice relaxed position that keeps everything civilised.
There were also a few heads turned on the bike path at the tasty copper colour and general suave arrangement that's part vintage MTB/ part cruiser.
What more can you ask for?
Summer's here and the byways are beckoning. (I'm also going to be adding some mudguards and porteur rack to use it as a London commuter; wave if you see me!).
Saddle up on your Wagtail!
