The Aftermath

January 14, 2010

Xmas Epic 2009 finished!

Arrived Adelaide 8th Jan 10, a couple of days ahead of schedule.

Two weeks of watching the dawn, two breakfasts, two lunches, reading the papers completely, endless strong coffee, morning excercise, afternoon nap, the empty sleep of the physically weary. Beauty and meditation. Growing stronger every day. What sort of life is that?

For those that made it possible:

Malcolm Brilliant Christmas;
Putting us up in Melbourne
David Putting us up Night 1
Sally & Rob Putting us up Night 2
Mary Putting us up in Adelaide
Wendy & Di Support crew extraordinaire

A Very Very Big Thankyou!

The prologue

December 26, 2009

Two epic days of carb-loading. Malcolm invents a new form of Xmas that involves a complex method of gift giving. It takes 2 hours to explain the rules and 1 hour to complete. Everyone happy. Mark gets the Assos. James rests up big time. Everyone gets a cycling book. Tomorrow we ride.
