I handed the bottle over to a Norton rider who carried it to Portland, with the plan of going by The Cycle Hub and having Cliff Majhor, the Sandy Bandit, sign the tube, and somehow, the guy forgot he had it!
It had dissappeared for a couple of months, and I just assumed that it was duly carried to its destination in Portland and then passed on to someone further North.
When people on britbike began asking if anyone knew where the bottle was, I contacted the guy I had given it to, and he finally sent it on to the next recipient.
So I have the dubious honor of almost being the guy who lost the famous bottle of Guinness!
great story! thanks for sharing it.
