So today marks the start of my last month in the UK before I leave for the bright lights of New York. It's definitely a very strange feeling, but the uncertainty about it also is quelled by an enormous sense of liberation. I'll be in NYC for around 3 months before I set off cycling, which'll hopefully give me time to finalise sponsorship, get my kits sorted, have a few fully loaded practise rides, that sort of thing. Anyone from New York reading this, give me an email if you want to meet up or havew a chat, I'd be happy to have some company when I move!
Meanwhile I'll be continuing with my planning and preparation for the trip; it's been a full time job so far and it's only going to get busier I feel. There's no complaints from me though - every second of it is incredibly exciting.
I took the last 4 days off to spend some quality time with my girlfriend before I abandon her for a bicycle, and now I'm ready to return to the prep with renewed vigour!
So expect some exciting things to appear on the site in the coming days and weeks, watch this space!
