  • Thx to @tyekit I have a lovely room at Rivendell. Appropriate place to stay on a journey. #
  • @akoch0629 doubt it, 208K is considered far too far by these guys. I suspect they all think I'm disturbed doing the long hauls. #
  • Many trials on the #tda2012 4 months of no ales. Today managed a slight variation at a German beer house to a weizen. #

  • This weeks schedule. What will the dirt be like? #
  • Stage 81 route board #
  • The ride in with team Alaric in the local paper #
