Don’t Spit Into the Wind …

Today marks a week exactly until Dianne and I catch the big bird out of Hobart to the northern hemisphere summer and cycling in the fabled Dolomites. We then move on through Austria, Germany, north-eastern France and finishing south of Paris at the historic Fontevraud Abbey where Richard the Lionheart is buried. It’s stuff that dreams are made of, and we are dreaming of favourable winds, dry roads and good legs.

Getting Ready to Be Lionhearted

After almost a year of anticipation the Lionheart tour grows closer. It’s just on two and a half months away now and my mind is starting to become more focussed on the journey and challenges involved. It will be the fourth big bike adventure that Dianne and I have set off on together and we are looking forward to this one with just as much anticipation and excitement as the previous three.
