I spent most of today getting Kermit (my bike) ready to travel. Undressed, Kermit weighed in at 11 kg (about 22 lbs). All dressed as shown in the picture, Kermit swelled to 22 kg (about 48 lbs). There is still some tweaking I’ll do before the start of the race on May 1st. You can find a complete description of Kermit and the gear loading inside the bike bags in the Equipment branch of this site.
When I arrive in Netherlands, my good friend Wietse is meeting me at the airport and we’ll have a couple of days to catch up and sight see. This will be a great start to this adventure.
Tomorrow I launch my fund-raising campaign at Canadian Blood Services donor centre, 7071 Bayers Rd, Suite 252, Halifax. I welcome you to join me at 10:00 AM to chat, see my bike and equipment, and answer any questions you have about my adventure.
So it has been a busy but productive day as I countdown to the start of the Race Around the Netherlands.
