Round the World Bike trip 2013 001
My kit laid out on my bed. Experienced adventure cyclists advise you to reduce your initial kit list by 50%!
Following an epic overland journey with Dragoman through Nepal and India over the Christmas and New Year period, realisation has set in that there are just 6 weeks remaining before I set off on my bike trip around the World. If I said I wasn't nervous, I'd be lying.
Between now and then, I need to get my fitness levels back up, as I have been doing diddly squat Physical Training for the past month and a half, and plenty of drinking Kingfisher beer. Luckily Southsea Fitness Military circuits are on hand to sort that out.
Also I shall be cycling to Woodlow Farm in Herefordshire at the end of January, my previous abode for the past year, to visit my good friends Bunty and Di, James and Jenny and Vicky. This will be a good training run to start wearing in my Brooks saddle (no pain...no gain) and will provide me with an opportunity to try out my new tent and camping equipment.
My remaining vaccinations will be given to me next week and then there are just a few administrative items which I need to resolve before I take the big step of cycling out of Portsmouth on 1 March 2013. Hopefully all this cold weather we are experiencing now will have long passed and Spring will really be upon us!
