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

No idea of the date or day, but we're in Florence!

 Great riding here in Tuscany..we've moved out of the 15+km uphill slogs followed by downhills in sketchy road surfaces to shorter, sharper uphills one after the other followed by GREAT dowhhills on smooth, well cambered roads.  Yahoo/yeeha! worthy.

With the 2 Kiwis gone  the awesome threesome have had to pickup the navigational duties and have  managed to stay focussed and on course with a high level of skill (unlike our revered leader and organisor who managed to get lost the other day leading his usual string of cyclists, who once they were with him, stopped bothering to navigate ;-) We''ve also managed to arrive in first into lunch and have beaten the so-called "A team" a number of times..nothing competitive about us of course and no comments please about the fact that we set off  straight after brekkywell before the official start time!

Sienna was great,well worth a visit and very steep..walking anywhere is an added challenge after days and days on the bike

  and we were lucky enough to catch the Giraffe group doing their flag waving thing.

 but in the end ..walking gets to be a bit tiring.
