As someone who has been a pillion for more years than I care to remember I have often been left feeling like an after thought by bike designers.  Some bikes quite clearly are designed for two people but very little attention appears to have been given to the the pillion.  Other bikes have left me questioning why the even bothered to fit rear pegs. Over the years I have been scrunched, hunched, tipped the wrong way and even although I’m very small I’ve had my knees under my chin.

Through all of this I have loved every moment of biking, it is something I have done with my best pal and husband since I was sixteen.  I would like to share some of the highs and lows of past and future trips, the good and the bad.
