Vietnam…….I was there man!
In May I had an epic adventure – I rode 910 miles from Lao Cai to Da Nang in Vietnam.
Adventuring seems to be a growing “sport” with all sorts of people devising new challenges for themselves and then setting off and doing them.
For a little context, my taking on this ride was recompense for not completing a “JOGLE” – John-O-Groats to Lands End – a couple of years ago. This was due to be a nine day ride covering the length of the country however through over zealous descending (being a bit of twat) did I crash at 40mph on day two and smashed my femur in to bits. Yet to set the record straight and more importantly make good to all my sponsors I took on the Cycle a Difference challenge.
