Loaded up, with somewhere to go. Ireland.
The last 2,000 miles beckon, around the entire coast of the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, via the remaining 45 RNLI Lifeboat Stations.
Fondo is clean, oiled, fine tuned and ready to roll. Note the new orange T-shirt!
Since last year’s completion of the 5,300 mile circuit of all the non Irish bits of the British Isles, the legs have wintered well, thanks to fairly regular training rides. Some solo, some in the good company of my old friend and serious cycling buddy, Keith Graham.
Off to Fishguard next Tuesday, 11 April, for the Rosslare ferry. Many thanks to Carl, Fishguard Lifeboat crew and Port Manager, for arranging my passage with Stena.
Fundraising cycling resumes in earnest on Wednesday, with a 64 mile (that’s 103 km in Ireland) ride from Rosslare Harbour to Dunmore East, via Kilmore Quay, Fethard and Hook Lighthouse).
Just need to clear these last few timbers (brought down by storm Doris) from the garden and re-stock the log shed before I go.
