Yeah I think April will be good to set up a challenge, I'll have a better idea then of how the microloading is going and see if that kind of time frame is feasible. Maybe I'll have lost some weight too? Not sure about the time, maybe another year and a half at least? Not really in any rush to get back home. But this new touring bike has got me thinking about doing some longer road rides to help supplement the long running. Plus moving around long distances on your own power is kind of enchanting. Hopefully I can drag the kids along when they get a little older too. Maybe do a ferry ride to England and loop up to the lakes and down to wales? The possibilities are endless, although the left side of the road riding kind of freaks me out.
