It’s been a busy day, one I started with a beautiful sunset and a ride by the seaside. Even at 6.30am this morning I was sweating without working too hard.
It going to be a super early start tomorrow morning. 3am up and getting ready, we start riding at 5am. I can’t wait to see the sunrise.
I’ve got all my supplements ready, shake ready to go first thing in the morning, snacks packed in the bike bags.
We had dinner together as a group. Chicken, salads (potato, pasta, green) and bread. Carbs anyone?
For me, to be honest, I just needed a new goal to work towards and biking the 840km seemed as good a goal as any. But the fundraising side of things has been a happy bonus and the support that’s come from friends, family and even some people I don’t know has been really amazing. Just knowing that so many people have my back in whatever way they can is what keeps me believing that I can do this. And I’m sure it’s the same with the other riders.
We also got warned about the potential “issues” that we might have. Check out the video about Dznuts. There are also minimal toilet stops so chances are we’ll be getting familiar with nature…damn it, I forgot to ask about snakes and spiders!!!
Oh well, not much more to do now but go to sleep, get plenty of rest (if these dogs ever stop barking!!!) and then hit the road!!!
See you tomorrow!!
