Hi all, We have been training quite a bit the last week or so, we have been cycling to and from Janes work which is about 15 miles round trip and I have also been using the rowing machine most days as that is a very good cardio workout. We have been also looking at solutions to problems like punctures and what to do if we cant find a place to pump our tyres up.
You see we have a Presta valve pump but its not that great and we struggle to get the right pressure into it, so we have just ordered some presta valve converters which look like they will do the trick especially as it is going to be a lot easier to find a place to pump up a car tyre than a bike tyre.
So that is about all the news we have really, I am trying to up my pace a bit so I do a faster average speed and pushing myself a lot harder than before and hopefully this will help in the long run for our trip.
It really is sinking home what we have got to achieve and I personally am getting a little concerned about the task in hand.
We are really in need to not only have places to sleep on the way down but we want some more sponsorship money we want to make a lot of money and really do everything we can for Help For Heroes so please support us as the more money we make the more determined we will be to push on. We need your help to complete this epic task!!
