We arrive in india and clear customs with a cleat bag, a hand bag and one of our waterproof bags as all of our luggage for the next three weeks in India. After a mad rush around Bangkok to find someone willing to take care of most of our gear and two bikes while we were away (Thanks Kerry!), then a race to the indian embassy to pick up our passports with our shiny new visas we actually arrived at the airport about 3 hours too early to check in… oops.

And so it begins

I returned to Brisbane after working for a month installing solar trackers in Queensland’s outback. My girlfriend, Jess, and I loaded the car and began a week long winding road trip down to Bendigo for the Australian Ultimate Frisbee Championships.

On the way (well, a bit out of the way really) we called into Shaw’s Cycling Centre run by my old bike mentor, Dennis Shaw in Ballarat. I rang Dennis at the start of 2013 to let him know that Jess and I had decided to cycle from my hometown of Creswick all the way to London. At the time, Dennis told me he had just the bikes for us and he started to order bits in to get them ready. Well, Jess and I picked up those bikes a fortnight ago and took them for a spin that day. My Dad, Rob, came along for the ride to Ascot. We have bought Vivente World Randonneur’s and they are a very smooth ride.
