Trip Planning

This category covers trip planning, whether it be for bicycle touring or any other kind of trip.

Happy New Year, for 2019!

Happy new year, to one and all, for 2019! For 2018, I didn’t fit in as much cycling as I’d hoped for – didn’t even breach the 1000 km mark! This was partly due to my coming off my bike, around mid-2018, and giving it a break for a couple of months. 2019, though...
