Well, after just over 5 months of intense planning, I’m on my way.
An emotional farewell to my family this morning – it’s hard to think that it will be almost 5 months before I see them again in person. The kids will have grown (as kids are wont to do – and in more than one way) and we will have chickens in the backyard!
It’s good to be on the bike and, in the words of Phil Liggett (Tour deFrance commentator – though I have no illusions about MY riding), having a ‘day at the office’ – it will be even better tomorrow when I have my first regional presentation in Ballarat. If you’re in the neighbourhood, pop in and find out how YOU can avoid wasting your money on unnecessary energy use.
