Due to a low battery and a very strong beer requirement, this is a day late, but what an experience. Great to see hobo again after his epic journey, which still staggers me to think of how far he rode.
We finished in 3 hours 14 minutes, which was about an hour ahead of schedule and hobo did it in 3 hours 40 minutes.
Awesome experience!! :)

If I'm in the right country I'll take you on next year - in aid of Cyclists Fighting Cancer http://www.cyclistsfc.org.uk/

It'll have to be after August though because I have too much scheduled before then :)

Simply awesome. Well done both of you!

I'd have loved to have joined in or been there to greet you at the finish line, but we were so much further north that day.

Thanks guys, it really was a great experience to do teh ride and to finish so far ahead of where we expected. I did manage a tiny wheelie as I jumped towards the finish line, but a small part of me wishes I could've changed bikes for the finish just to cross the line in style :)

As for the hobo story, I can't wait to hear about the trip back and to see how much more dirt kj has acquired since Sunday, the guy is fantastic!! (if a little nuts ;D)

3hrs14mins? Oh, just down the road then, did you remember to get the bread & a pint of milk while you were there?

I just think it would be great to take part and it's a good cause to train for.

If Nige does it (and therefore mr & mrs Geo) then I'm in.
