As well as thanks to Sue for her patience, understanding and support, thanks to the following for helping me get ready for this trip. No-one has paid anything to be here – these are just good people who have put in extra time and effort, or have helped me out in one way or another. So employ their services, buy their products, join their clubs or buy them a beer!
In no particular order:
Philippe at VeloFasto – help with replacing the worn out parts of my bike
Donal at Alan E Duchemin Opticians – for getting the long wear contact lenses right
Mark at http://www.trackershop-uk.com for out of hours support and resolving a last minute issue with the GPS tracker
Thanks to family, friends & colleagues for their support – and to you for reading this blog!
