My trusty steed

I recently sold my car, and bought a bike with the proceeds. I didn't have to pay in too much, so I reckon I got a good deal.


Click for big

It weighs just over 12kg, not that that matters much considering I'll be adding another 10-12kg in kit and food.

Many thanks to my two major sponsors for their contribution. Linden Cycles put the bike together, and gave me a really good "newspaper" price. My other sponsor was Corrinne who keeps working hard for bonusses - she paid the very good "newspaper" price.

I do very little to deserve this kindness, but it is much appreciated.

Hi brother in law! I think it's official... you've finally fallen off the rails (or perhaps the tarred track??)! You've lasted longer than most living with my sis... think the longest anyone lasted before was about 3 days so you're defintiely one of a kind! All the very best... I'll be watching your progress closely from Scotland and sending loads of well wishes and mental strength! Lots and lots of love, Shann xxx
