Meet Ian Coates

‘I were just off for’t wee ride…’ Ian Coates is story-teller extraordinaire and has gained a bit of a reputation for holding an audience enraptured. This mechanic from Hebden Bridge is the reason there are so many legless donkeys and he just popped out for a pint of milk… 14 years on the road riding just where the fancy took him, his global route is as disjointed and just as intoxicating as his recounting of it. Grab yourself a drink and snack before settling down to enjoy what might end up seeming like a trip down the yellow brick road.
