It had been talked about for some time and I still can’t quite believe it actually happened. If your a mad keen biker, a man and are not averse to the occasional drink then the Dazzler Express is the stuff that dreams are made of.
This summer 13 mountain biking friends embarked on what would become one hell of a trip on this little beauty…..
Yes, somehow we had all put our money where our mouths were and made this all to often pub chat a reality, and Rob Breakwell or ‘Dazzler’ was in for one hell of a stag do.
The Monmouth lot are a resourceful, practical bunch, most of them have grown up in and around farms and work hands on with various trades so this was a ‘can do’ project for them and the rest of us are ever greatful for them for doing it. We had bought an MOT failure coach and the guys proceeded to strip it and rebuild it in an A team stylee with loads of steelwork being replaced around the chassis and then the interior being kitted out to make it the party bus that it was. Bunk beds, a lounge/chill out/dance area, a cooker, the funnel and of course a whopping big stereo – when the wheels started turning, the party started – everytime without fail.
The bus stopped in Montreux on Lac Leman, Morgins, Chatel, Chamonix and Bourg st Maurice before returning to Monmouth.
Check out the slide show for a snippet of what went down – (we did ride our bikes a few times) and a big shout to everyone we met along the way!
