The C-CT I'm planning is very much a personal challen...

Re: Cairo to Cape Town, record for +50year old?

Thanks Mattheus. I'll try contacting the people you mentioned. I think it's safe to say Mark Beaumont's record will be safe! :D

Re: Air Canada and Canada in general - well the flight was good...

Thanks so much for this. I'm currently in California, heading north to fly Vancouver to England this October. I haven't booked my flight yet, so if I'm reading correctly, you say I just buy a normal seat/air ticket, then pay $50 when I arrive at the airport with a bicycle packed in a bike box?

Re: 1 year on the road, Brazil to Canada

Thanks everyone, and apologies for the WordPress layout being so painful. My previous tour blogs are on Crazy Guy On A Bike. I'd have to pay WordPress an annual fee forever more if I want to upgrade the site, and make it more reader friendly.

Re: Spa ti touring frame.

How is the Ti feeling compared to the Trucker, James? I'm on Disc Trucker myself and love it. However I do ride fully loaded.
