Rides I’ve been on – on my own, with others, test-riding new bikes, trying new things

Richard. His Jones. Everest.

Dear Jeff

I just wanted to say that I had a wonderful trip on my Jeff Jones across the Himalayas from Tibet to Nepal during September. I hope I’m your first customer to ride one of your bikes to the north face Everest base camp in Tibet. The bike was simply brilliant and I enclose […]
