600 HORSE TOWN: (Mackinac Island, MI, USA)

Famed for fudge, horses, and no cars, "a trip to the past", we were enjoying the carless roads (must be the only place in N. America without fetishised cars) and being able to have fun cycling a rented tandem 'hands free', using feet to steer.

Well our experiment ended up with us cycling along main street on our tandem, no-handed, just as it was being lined by crowds for a parade in a few minutes time. We rolled in like the main event! To cheers of applause (selective hearing) we balanced our trusty tandem to the rental shop where we had to muster up the dying American art of diplomacy to have our deposit returned.
