Jarman attempts to become the world's first kite biker

It all started in a pub. A lot of MBUK's best ideas do. Our resident dare devil, Rob Jarman, had recently been to the coast and spotted a kite buggy blasting across the beach at warp speed. It looked kinda cool. He mentioned it to his mates down the pub. and the next thing you know he's on a bike, on Llandudno beach, hooked up to one mahoosive kite.

Not that Rob's got any idea what he's doing, you understand. But that's okay cos there's this kinda mad looking bloke with Technicolor hair on hand to tell him what he's doing wrong. It'll all be fine. Or will it?

Did Rob get blown out to sea? Did he end up on top of a mountain in Snowdonia? Did he actually get up on two wheels and fly like the wind? If you wanna find out what happened next, get this month's issue of MBUK (189, September) available on Wednesday 3 August.
