But we need to rewind back about 16 years
Back when I was living in Sydney, all I use to do was ride and race mountainbikes, this was my life, so it was only natural that when we left Australia that we would ride our pushies.
Now move forward 16 years
Then one day, a guy at work said, "I've got a Klein", and I did the stupid thing, went onto eBay, bid on a frame, won it, then bought another 4 Kleins !!! I was now back into riding, and the fat once again started to fall off, to the point, I had lost my stomach and discovered that I have stomach muscles !!! But don't worry, I still have my moobs !!!
Then Lucy said, I'm going to Barcelona, so I sat back and thought, maybe I should go to Spain myself, and do the il Primitivo, the walk I attempted in April and failed, so I booked the flights and started training. We did manage one epic ride, the South Downs Way, Winchester to Eastbourne, 160 Ks over two days, all off road, and we both completed the ride, well some of it was walked because there is no shame in pushing up a hill !!!
So I now know that I'm ready to do 330ish Ks in 5 days.
So tomorrow, look out, I am doing three mountain ranges, and hopefully will gain another Compostella, and maybe, just maybe, I might just lose my moobs !!!
