|The second MenCap ‘China Bike Ride’ took place in Beijing province in October 1999 - the same month that China was celebrating its 50th anniversary. |
82 of us took part, covering 444 km in 5 days - with very little sleep on the way! Amazingly, I managed not only to keep up, but even to catch up with the fittest cyclists by mid week.
They said just because I'd gone to China, not to make a song about it - but having brought my guitar with me meant I became sort of official entertainer for the week, and as events unfolded, so ‘Ballad of Beijing’ came to be written.
The album was originally recorded to raise funds for MenCap.
