This is a picture of Sylvie and Ben a.k.a. Frogs on ‘Bents. They have been on the road since April 2008. We originally connected with them via email, and kept in touch occasionally during our ride, so we were very excited when they told us they were coming to Canada this summer, and riding through Ottawa! That was, until we checked the dates… they would arrive in Ottawa just after we left for RAGBRAI 38. Very sad. Fortunately, we did manage to meet up with them at lunch near Brighton, Ontario, as we drove toward Iowa and they pedaled east. Hearing their stories, now we want to go to Patagonia!
We only wish we could have spent a few days riding with them. We would have been quite a sight too – four fully loaded HP Velo Streetmachines!
