Well, I'm here in Halifax.
Today has been tough even with the enthusiam of watching the distance peel away. Both the bike & I are tired now, this morning I note that I have a puncture in the rear tire which is worn through to the canvas. Further inspection reveals that the rim is fractured & buckled again, the chain is shot & the gears are no longer operorating properly, together we limped into Halifax.
I can't think straight & the bike is falling to bits, we are both SHAGGED (to use a quaint English phrase) but we have made it & right now I feel numb.
Time for a beer!
Thanks for taking the time to visit & all of the wonderful letters of encouragement.
