Anyway, any way suits old bikers to help each other!

Americans don't bike so much, so Henry did close it)

Berni, last summer I found your namesake and hairsake cycling between the auroxes in a wildlife area in The Netherlands and losing his rain boots from the luggage carrier. So I stopped for lending a hand and acting as a Dutch uncle "son, you need to prepare before you start a long journey". He told me within half a year both his girl-friend and he lost their mother due to cancer, which made him feeling he wanted to do something positive. I said "OK, but that boots don't fit the oxes". Then he told me about his 6000 km trip around the North Sea "Cycling back to Happiness". Being happy again he would write a book about his findings.
You and other people may like to read his online story, order his book, share experience, donate money or whatever!

"Bernie Friend is an award winning sports journalist and one of the UK's funniest new travel writers."

OK, not exactly auroxes or uruses


but there's not such a nice archaic word for an "aurbull" or "urbull"
