Day 9- Cereal Tester – Frauenkirchen, Aus – Daruvar, Cro

Hungary. Hungary, Hungary, Hungary. How I hated you. Cycling in Hungary involves being unceremoniously bounced from one pot hole to another, in an oven, with the fan on full. Oh and my arse was in clip. In the planning phase I'd eagerly anticipated Hungary because it was flat, and I thought I'd make great time. … Continue reading Day 9- Cereal Tester – Frauenkirchen, Aus – Daruvar, Cro

Day 8 – #forgettable – Jaromer, CZE – Frauenkirchen, AUS

A day of high mileage and few memories make for a tedious retelling. What makes the retelling more tedious is I finished this post 5 minutes ago, and upon returning to the homepage it has disappeared. So I have to endure recounting these 237 forgettable miles again. Joy.  Are you eager to read on? Have … Continue reading Day 8 – #forgettable – Jaromer, CZE – Frauenkirchen, AUS

Day 6 – Princess on a steel bicycle – Sankt Gallen, AUS – Pabenice, CZE

Before I delve into Day 6 it's important to point out that this is the only day the Wahoo let me down.

I know the mileage because I made a note of it, aside … Continue reading Day 6 – Princess on a steel bicycle – Sankt Gallen, AUS – Pabenice, CZE

Day 5 – When you forget how to be an actual adult human – Bovec, SLO – Sankt Gallen, Aus

I survive the night, my acrid stench putting off any would be carnivores. Its dark and I faff about trying to get everything packed before setting off towards the Vrsic Pass. The Vrsic Pass is a vicious way to start a day of cycling and by the time I reach the summit I'm already hanging … Continue reading Day 5 – When you forget how to be an actual adult human – Bovec, SLO – Sankt Gallen, Aus

Day 4 -The fine line between heaven and hell – Sterzing-Vipiteno, ITA – Bovec, SLO

My alarm goes off somewhere between 0300 and 0400. My ears alert me to heavy rainfall, and my bleary eyes confirm it moments later. A quick check of the weather radar confirm it passes within an hour, so I allow myself an extra 30 minutes snooze. When I do finally set off, the roads are … Continue reading Day 4 -The fine line between heaven and hell – Sterzing-Vipiteno, ITA – Bovec, SLO

Day 3- Hank gets the blues – Gaschurn, Aus – Sterzing-Vipiteno, Ita

After packing up my bivvy from the worlds least comfortable car park floor I went upstairs to the hotel to indulge in one of life's most underrated pleasures, a buffet breakfast. Adam(#211) Stu(#194) Joseph (#165) and Danny (#9) were all enjoying the same fare, and it was good to chat to people after a second … Continue reading Day 3- Hank gets the blues – Gaschurn, Aus – Sterzing-Vipiteno, Ita
