Heading South

OK so it’s our tenth day of cycling and we’ve managed to clock up 525 miles, burn 40,000 calories and still look the same…WHY?

Today was another exemplary day of up hill, down hill, energy drinks, close calls with Road Kill and great scenery. If only we had ‘Helmet Cams’ you could see what we see everyday in glorious technicolor. We hope the photos provide you with a little insight into how brilliant this trip has been so far.

Speaking of brilliant. Americans! What a lovely bunch people they are. Even the drivers of motorized vehikkles are friendly and considerate. There has however been the occasional incoherent hollerin’ from the passing truck, we can only assume they’re shouting ‘Go Kat and Ant you’re doing a great job”.

Apologies if this blog post is not very exciting; we’re both shattered after 4 consecutive days of cycling and tomorrow we have another 25 mile sprint into Richmond…then we rest (get bikes serviced, send emails and buy stuff) for a day.
