Just come back from 4 days riding to and from Brecon in Wales (around 190 miles). Scenery was absolutely stunning. Those hills in Wales aren’t half hard work though, especially riding a bike i can hardly push! I shouldn’t need quite as much gear for the real thing. Here’s a picture of my bike fully loaded!
Updated: Ferry is booked, so my date of departure from the UK will be from the port of Weymouth on Monday 11th April 2011. Getting excited now!! So from this date keep an eye on my Travelogue for (hopefully) regular updates and a plot of my route.
