Two days until the off

20 May 2016

Well here we are. The bike’s been serviced, many things ordered online, and much (well, a little) planning done. It’s now only two days until I fly to Porto with my travelling companion for the next six weeks: my bike.

I plan to next use any form of transport other than that when I fly back from Munich at the beginning of July. I’ve no idea whether I’ll follow it, but here’s a rough route I’ve put together:-

The seemingly-random start and end points do have some reasons behind them, but not that much. Find me in a pub when I’m back, or somewhere en route, and I’ll bore you with the explanation. The poor bike has been laden down with what I thought to be a minimal amount of kit, but even just that weighs about 10 kilos. That’ll be interesting going up Alp d’Huez.

I’ll probably be writing here quite regularly, posting updates on Twitter and pictures and videos on Instagram, so check those out if you want to know what I’m up to. I’ve also set up my phone to ping my location every hour; if you’re a friend just drop me a line and I’ll tell you where you can find that.

Next stop Porto!
