We have inspired Nico who is approaching his 60000km. He twisted our arms, and so we did it. 60000km, 44000km and 41000km written on our bums. It was too cold to cycle today. It was just for the photo. I’ll have to get the photo from Nico.

Today was the Riesling Trail in Clare. Wine tasting and then lunch in the rolling hills of the Clare Valley. Again, a lot of laughing. We’re a funny threesome. I didn’t have time to get emotional today. It’s a new dynamic with an extra team member, and so I don’t notice how the kilometres remains are dwindling rapidly. Before I know it I will be standing on the beach in Brighton, and that will be it.

    Hi Matthew, It looks you have a lot of fun closing the finish line. Good job. Can we expect some post updates next weeks/ months on this site how you manage of bike/ daily life? I’m really curious how that feels to you. Has Clement a site/ platform were we can follow him?

    Goodluck “met de laatste loodjes”


    • Hi Marcel. I may post some updates every now and then. It depends on if there is something worth writing about. Stay tuned.

      Clement has a blog which is in french. The blog is a long way behind – he hasn’t even met me in his blog; so if you can speak French, you can relive our trip together one more time. 🙂

    This country looks A LOT different from the desert!
