3 weeks to go…

3 weeks to go until we start riding, and we’re beyond excited. We loaded up our panniers for the first time at the weekend with mine weighing in at 11.5kg and Ryan’s at around 20kg, pretty light for 18 months:-D

Oh, and it’s my final week at work, which meant today’s was the last Monday morning wake up call for a while…wahoo!

7 weeks to go…

There are 7 weeks to go until we start cycling towards New Zealand (leaving day is Sunday 5th September).  We still have an intimidating amount of  kit to buy and admin to sort before we’re  officially “ready”, but we are getting close to being organised and are both beginning to fantasise about riding effortlessly off into the sunset…or at least riding around the M25 towards Dover.

We will be updating this blog as regularly as we come across internet access and will share our favourite pictures and highlights of the journey with you, and of course attempt to make you feel jealous enough so that you come and join us for a leg of the tour!
