Heading into the final week, I am beginning to get excited about the whole trip. The training is going good. Been out every day this week increasing the miles and the hours on the saddle (most important). I have been making my checklists of stuff to take and will refine it up as the coming week progresses. Having sourced the bike I want to ride ( A Cannondale Tourer 1). I am trying to get a good deal over there. Ill post a picture when I get one and I will keep you posted.
