Wish me luck!
Well, this is it - I fly out tomorrow to Iowa to embark on my 700km ride! My first stop will be to visit the folks at Great Western Bank, which I am very much looking forward to. Then the event kicks off on Sunday - Day One demands 68.5 miles at quite an elevated gradient! A harsh introduction to the 7 day expedition....
Thank you to all of you who have kindly sponsored me - I have raised just over $60k with your generous contributions and pledges! I am still hoping to close the gap to my $70k target.
Look forward to giving you a full account of our adventures upon my return.
