Getting Ready to go!
In 1 week we are making our way to Mile 0 of the Vietnam to Singapore ride! Everyone in the team is doing their bits and getting ready. Eleanor in Brisbane now has the handheld GPS that Andrew in PNG has prepared for us with all the relevant maps and route option, Jim in Canberra is full bottle with panniers and technical bits, Alastair in Perth has a comfy saddle organised (after testing 4) and has been cycling lots. Marc in Canberra is training hard as he is riding a regular bicycle, Cindy has just booked ticket, and is fiddling with her off-shore fly in/out job schedule...
Derico cycles has checked over my bike and fitted a mirror for me, Vistaprint is still delivering more and more Cystic Fibrosis and ride propaganda to us all, destined for distribution in Asia. I have made contact with Sreymom who is a very helpful lady in Cambodia who is offering to help us (thanks to Lousie Ellings who has helped Srimom with other business in return for providing help to us!). Dutch relatives are busy putting the feelers out for a little welcome committee in Singapore... It is all coming together slowly, and we are all counting down!
