Cycling New Zealand
Hi Richard. We have been following your blog for yonks and love reading it. Reading it made our planning for our own trip around Tasmania last year so much easier. I am just making contact to ask please when / if you do New Zealand again to please drop us a line as we would love to join your group. Not sure how it works, if you could point me in the right direction please.

Coffee and breakfast on the wharf.
Hi Richard, I was trawling the blogs and found yours about Triabunna. We have been operating a coffee / refreshment van at the Maria Island Ferry Terminal at the Triabunna Marina for the last six months and can now offer travellers like yourself great espresso coffees and some light snacks right at the waters edge. We are there from 8am every day except Tuesdays to serve the ferry passengers. Tom

Rough road

Cyclo Cross
Looks like you should've taken a cyclo-cross or hard tail mountain bike & not your new tourer. Looks like you're having a good time though. Definitely have more fun than most of us back home experiencing a cloudy late october with temperatures from 11 to 15 degrees.

Dubai Tours
I’m wondering if you have noticed how the tour & travel industry has changed? What a people seemed like a never discussed issue.I've to seen your site,the theme of site is good,what ever you discussed with people,they got new things.I’ll check back to see what you have to say(http://www.mastholiday.com/travels/destinations/dubai.html).

Greetings
Hi Richard, Have enjoyed reading your blog. It sounds a very exciting, vibrant country to be visiting. Think I'd come back at least a stone lighter for not eating the dodgy meat (that's me, Christine, Jim would eat anything!!). Jim says maybe the lady at the market thought your lady rider had hidden some melons down her top!!

Noodle Soup
Hey Pa. Only just got round to reading your blog. Sounds like quite an experience. The mountain regions of Northern Vietman are something else arent they. We didnt see anything like as much as you've done. We just did a day trekking from Sa Pa & hired motorbikes one day. See if you can check out the herbal baths. Sa Pa is very touristy compared to the villages you've been used to. There are loads of good restaurants & bars. With regards to food & carb loading. Can't you get them to give you noodle soup? They live on it out there. Bits of beef & a few veg in a light broth with loads of noodles. That would be perfect for cycling & very very cheap. Enjoyed reading the reports. Keep em coming. x

What a motley crew!
Never having been on an organised tour before, I was surprised at how well we did get on together! Turkey was a brilliant place to cycle, and having a good variety of other riders to spend the time of day with was an added bonus.

Turkey
Excellent report Richard - sounds like a great place but I still think you are slightly mad. If you had a CV it would say 'Can get a free cup of tea anywhere'!

Keep Pedalling
Hello, Just thought I'd leave you a note to say good luck for the rest of your journey. China sounds an amazing place. It's hard to imagine all the sights and smells you must be experiencing. It sounds a far cry from Clitheroe and I bet that their Cement factories are a bit different to Castle Cement. All the best, Luke

Other Meats....
I found that the chinese are very open & honest about the food they serve in restaurants. In Yuangshou near Guilin the menu boards had all manner of animanls that westerners wouldn't dream of eating & in Kunming I saw a skinned dogs head (& tail) on a street side meat stall!!! Insert your reaction here....................
