Denmark put on a beautiful morning for my last training ride.
Thanks to all the Denmark riders for being such good company and so welcoming to all comers.
Better get the last of the packing done.
I have had a few people asking me about the bikes. Here is a picture of them resting after a big ride in Bali. They were made by Bike Friday and they are designed for travelling. The seat and handlebar posts are telescopic and the frame can be broken down into three parts for ease of packing. The 20 inch wheels and low bike frame create an overall, low centre of gravity. This results in the bike being very stable, especially when they are fully loaded with panniers.
I have been feeling all sorts of emotions over the last couple of weeks. Disbelief, apprehension and dread being a few of them. It is the last day of work today and I am starting to feel very excited. Only 9 days to go.
14 days before we leave for Perth, where we fly out on the 25th of December to Singapore. It feels like we have endless tasks to do but most of them can not be done until the last minute. It is hard to get motivated to do the tasks that can be done now as Allister and I are still working and the boys are still at school.
Here we come. We are about to embark on a cycle trip through SE Asia. As part of the trip we are going to document it on this blog, with the whole family posting. Hope you enjoy.
