Pedal

Pedal, a movie about the cyclist Hera Van Willick

Forty-three countries down, Hera Van Willick – Pedal rides her bicycle across continents, fully self-supported. This is her journey and what she has learned along the way.

Watching this short movie makes you jump right on your bike and head somewhere.
Thanks Fabian for sharing it with me!

Britain’s remaining traditional tannery

J & FJ Baker & Co Ltd Tannery

A family-run tannery in Devon is believed to be Britain’s only remaining traditional oak bark tannery still in production.

J & FJ Baker & Co Ltd is based in Colyton, Devon, and has been owned by Andrew Par’s family for 150 years – although a tannery is said to have existed in the area since Roman times. Here Mr Par outlines the process used to transform hides to leather.

Apparently the website is down so I hope the Tannery still exist until today.
