Man with van
After seeing Vaughan and Gav with their respective vans recently I became sorely tempted with one. I’ve been trying to get out riding this year a lot more which I was using a small Fiesta for. It’s a bit of a pain getting bikes in there without wrecking the insides of it. With a more than a little help from Gav and hours and hours trawling eBay we ended up with a beautiful Fiat Scudo 2 litre JTD model in white. I would have loved a VW van but I would have had to double my budget which I didn’t fancy. So I sold the car and headed up to Swansea to collect it. Amazingly it only had 42k on the clock so hopefully has plenty of life in it.
So last weekend I was able to take it out, fill it with bikes and generally use if for its intended purpose. Three bikes fitted comfortably in the back with the important detail of all wheels still on.
I’ve got a bit of a plan for a few upgrades and even a small conversion but for now it’s great to have a convenient way to go biking. I bloody love the thing. It drives really well and that slightly higher position is really nice. Another ride next Sunday and then maybe a Wales trip or two soon.
