I had this idea in January. A personal goal to cycle from Cape Reinga to Bluff alone and unassisted within the year.
I thought from that day to now that if I could get everything assembled and inform enough people, then I wouldn’t have the excuse to get out of it. Basically eliminate the barriers one by one so that in the end the only thing stopping me is me.
So here I am some seven months later with the assembly pretty much completed and although I’ve still got another five months, I need to begin physically preparing myself for this. Getting saddle ready, more physically fit, quitting the cigarettes and planning the route.
So this blog is a first. A way to record the build up to the Cape on the 9th of December and beyond.
