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

Back to europe for a more relaxed holiday

..well actually it'll be just as cycle focused as I'll be training for the World Masters Road Champs in Austria at the end of August,  however since I've just endured a week of jet lag followed almost immediately by a week of "the 'flu", my training is so far behind where it should be that  I'm 100% certain I'll be propping up the bottom of the list this time round.

Curently Alex is competing in Portugal in the World Mountain Bike Orienteering Championships, please take a look at this web site for details...   or this one for the team's blog

 There are quite a few events..sprint, middle distance  qualifying for the long and then the long distance and after that the relays.  Alex is better at the longer distances.  The sprint event starts later today (Sunday am both  there).

I fly out on Thursday and will be riding the Alp d'Huez on Sunday..providing my cough and sinus issues doesn't worsen during the flight. 

I'm soooo looking forward to warmer weather and the 21 hairpin bends...better than the 48 of the Stelvio
