A few days ago we had the pleasure of dinner and beers with Pete Johnson. Pete is from Manchester, England and is visiting every Manchester in the USA by motorbike. He conjured this plan a few years back and when an English insurance company promoted a contest – What’s your dream ride? – Pete jumped at the opportunity. There were over 4,000 entries and Pete came out victorious! They have graciously sponsored his motorcycle journey around the USA (and one Manchester in Canada).
Pete is just starting out on his adventure. He flew into Boston and visited Manchester-by-the-sea in Massachusetts before we showed him around our Manchester in New Hampshire. His first few days have been clouded with rain (thankfully he’s used to that kind of thing) but he’s looking forward to brighter days.
After leaving us in New Hampshire he was off to Manchester, Maine and then Manchester, Vermont. Hmmmmm… This could get repetitive.
So where are you going? Manchester. Oh, and where are you coming from? Manchester…
We wish Pete well on his amazing adventure. You can follow him on Facebook, Twitter, and his blog (United States of AManchester) or on one of the hundreds of local TV/radio/newspaper gigs he’ll be doing along the way. So, what is your dream ride?
