Ross Noble's Sit Down Tour - the Lakes to the Wild West

Published: 24 August 2011

Ross Noble, stand up comedian, bike enthusiast and enduro racer, embarked on the Sit Down Tour in May to celebrate half a million bikes being produced at the Hinckley factory.

The tour of the UK was made on the 500,000th Triumph, a custom-painted Speed Triple, and was guided entirely by suggestions from followers of Noble's Twitter account

After the tour the Speed Triple was auctioned at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, with the proceeds going to bike charity Riders for Health.

In the fifth instalment the tour Ross rides the picturesque roads of the Lake District, stopping off at a windy Hartside cafe, before crossing the border into Scotland in search of the Wild West.
