Another reason to celebrate our big trip.

Some time in March (can't remember the exact day), Gemma foolishly agreed to marry me. We just thought that organising a year long bike adveture wasn't quite enough. So, the big day is all penned in for 31st October 2008 (Halloween ! Woohoo !!) just a fortnight before we're due to fly off. What was once a bit of a jolly trip is now our honeymoon, wahey! Little does she know this is only the start of crazy idea bike trips..

Gemma is obviously very lucky that she's being treated to such luxurious accomodation, food, drinks, clothes and relaxing time. Nothing but the best, eh?!

Nice People

So far in the course of our preparation for this trip we have met loads of really nice and helpful people.

Andre and the rest of his team at Swiss Air have been fantastic and very helpful in waiving the cost of transporting our bikes to the other side of the world and increasing our luggage allowances. Thank you very much!

Ben Winnard at Cotswold Outdoor has been great at advising on which bits of geeky technical equipment we will need and providing a much appreciated discount! Thanks Ben and we'll send you an extra special postcard from somewhere great.

We would like to recommend both businesses for being utterly fab and if you ever need any camping equipment or flights somewhere we recommend you check them out!!
