So you will be aware that the campaign had a bit of a wobble, well not so much a wobble as a tumble when my bike buddy Matt had an incident that demonstrated his inability to stay upright on two wheels and led him to experience the fine services of the Royal Bournemouth’s A&E dept. Long story involving Dr’s, Nurses, pain, stitches etc, the upshot being that today was a self-imposed D-day for if he was going to be able to do the ride. The good news is its go, go, go. So it’s now only a week to go before we head off at the crack of sparrows and head off to gay Paris. There was a bit of a last-minute panic today when I wasn’t sure that our new rescue Dally was fully jabbed up (or more likely sniffed up) in terms of Kennel cough, as he and Bella will be spending a few days on a holiday of their own. A few frantic calls and a trip to the vets and it’s problem sorted. Matt has used his downtime constructively and created a Facebook page for the adventure, I’m not really sure what that means but you can see it here
He has also been busily route planning and day 1 looks like this. I think all the little white dots are where he wants to stop and rest.
Just time now for a few more decent cycles and then it will be time to ease up, get packed and get going.
