Thanks for your thoughts - sadly BA has PD, so not even US burgers are going to help. I think this will have to be our last moving on tour
For the record - things were tough enough without either of us trying to prove how badly we sing
Temperature is 90 degrees, was 75 when we got up to watch the sunrise at 6.30, so no running on the cards until we get home. Managed 30 miles on the bike, 5 miles walking and a couple of hours in the sea, so shouldn't be losing too much fitness (I hope)
Grey and wet here , just like home only (much) warmer! No OW swimming will be possible, the currents and undertows are terrifying. Good fun messing around in shallow water with the waves, but after a few minutes you find you are 400 yds further down the beach. Official advice is not to go deeper than shoulder depth and you see very few (any?) swimmers.
AA: highs were riding along the ridge of the Blue Mountains, knowing you had done the main climb and it was overall downhill to your accommodation!
Lows were realising how much less BA can now do, compared to two years ago. He is significantly worse and it is only going one way. Looks like running is a thing of the past.
Greeting from Harrisonburg VA, where the temperature is 96 degrees and we are melting. Rode the length of the Skyline Drive in 2 days, 8,000ft of ascent and some fabulous scenery. Today was 65 miles, only 3,000ft ascent, but temperatures that were just crazy - 80 degrees in the shade at 9.00am. Day off the bikes tomorrow to do some sightseeing - anyone for the Quilt Museum???
belated HBTY Barry and welcome back Kiwi - I'm more or less a non runner at the moment but hoping to get some enthusiasm back when we get home.
Get up the training team and I'll just keep consuming the calories........
Greetings from hot, sunny Virginia! After a couple of days sight-seeing in DC we brought the bikes via Amtrak to Charlottesville, where we rebuilt them yesterday. 20 mile ride today trying to find a sensible route out for tomorrow, when we will be fully loaded up and not wanting to be doubling back every time we get lost. Had enough of culture etc - time to hit the hills! This is obviously a good town for cyclists, dedicated bike lanes on most of the major roads and priority at traffic lights.
We are fully armed with pepper spray - so bring on the bears........
