The Man, ” Crazy Guy on a bike” (in cycling kit) – Chris Barber

So still training, still cycling the hills around Verona and Sardinia’s Isola della Madallena. Getting fitter, stronger, slimmer. Soon I’l lbe out on the real road again.

His Beast – I suppose at least I’ll have more gears

However, was going through this excellent  visual and descriptive blog of one guy’s Route 66 trip and starting to panic. There will be days of dead straight, flat monotony. Long days.

As “the crazy guy” writes, the route just goes,

“on and on, and on..

And on and on and on

And on…”

“All of my own – for about thirty miles” – Chris Barber

This will be a serious test of mental and moral fibre. Of course, that’s half the point; but am I fit for purpose?
