A new comedy about life, love and staying on your bike!


When retired miner Don and former private school teacher Carol meet at a bereavement group, they thought they’d found a new beginning. But a bike ride through Europe would test their budding romance, and the road to love is rocky when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object.


Join them on their hilarious and heartfelt journey, as they reconcile the past, debate the present and worry about the future. Whether they’re saddle sore in Southampton, blistered in Bordeaux or frazzled in Florence, one thing is for sure – it takes two to tandem!


The double BAFTA and Olivier Award-winning partnership of John Godber and his wife Jane Thornton return to perform on the LBT stage, for the first time since Shafted, in this new play.


'Full of comedy, nostalgia and social commentary...a must see!'




'John Godber and Jane Thornton are effortless'
