16/02/12 After over one year of planning, working, saving money and dreaming about turning the 1st pedal of my cycle around the world. It would appear the time is almost here to set off.... Very scary.. As with all event planning, even if I had 10 years to get ready there will always be the last mad rush to get everything in place! The past two weeks have been a blur of trying to get all of my electrical contracts finished and final preparations in place. As I write this it is 10pm, 9 hours until I depart to go down to London and I still have several hours of work to complete.. I am looking forward to my first 125 mile day as a recovery day from the past few days! Throughout my ride I will be trying to keep my Twitter and Facebook as upto date as possible with my progress. I will also blogging as often as possible to give a detailed break down of my progress and the events that occur from day to day. It is possible to follow my Blog Here It is also possible to follow Live Tracking of mine and the other competitors progress here. These tracker send a signal every 10 minutes so it is possible to keep a close eye on my progress.
