Life after work and the trips of a lifetime

"We are judged by what we finish, not by what we start." - Anonymous

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, your body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, "Woo hoo! What a ride!..attributed in this form to either Maxine Cartoon or anon

Handlebar dramas


after all my packing, padding and care there’s nothing you can do if your carbon bars get a direct blow.  Luckily the mechanic had a spare.


half way on day 1 and the weather was totally crap..wind, hail, rain.

Days 2 and 3 have been windy but a bit warmer.  All days have been over 100km (and a bit extra when you get lost).  My Garmin tells me I’ve used over 3000 calories each day..the climbing is never ending or so it seems but the downhill hoons are to die for.

I had hoped to get back into Agrigento to take some pix of the narrow+++++++ streets I drove down but …too tired..too far away.

Tomorrow is Gerace to Nicolosi (near Mt Etna) and we’ve been told its the toughest day of the whole trip.

Wine flows every is Sicily’s solution to the no cork situation…
