After two 50 milers this weekend and several thousand feet of climbing, we've finally called it quits on the pre-France training. There comes a point when cycling burn-out replaces enthusiasm and none of us wants to start the greatest physical adventure of our lives in that mental and physical state.
We had a surprise bon voyage dinner with Herb and Karen Niles last night. What a great time sharing adventures and many glasses of first class southern hemisphere wines. Well done Herb and Karen!
After 3 hours of sweat and one delicous Oranjeboom beer the tandem is packed. Boy, am I glad that we only have to do that one more time. Eveyone keep your fingers crossed that we can get our "bad boy" checked on the plane with no hassles Thursday.
