The Fat Tire Bike Tour, Barcelona - 29th April 2005

Nosher, The Boy Phil and Jon "Ninja" M are in Barcelona, and decide to do a bike ride around the city for a few hours as a way of getting to know what's around. The tour is organised by the Fat Tire company and starts out from the base of "Columbus Column" and lasts for around 4 hours. We are guided around by Ivan, an ex-USian who's split the LA scene for something more fulfulling
