Happy New Year for 2006, everybody.
In 3 weeks time I fly to the UK to pick up my new bike (a Koga-Miyata) and shortly after to Guatemala. I'll be in El Salvador for 3 months, learning Spanish and teaching English, then on down the isthmus (funny word, isthmus, especially if you've got false teeth). Then over to Cuba, back to Venezuela and on down the Andes to Chile.
At least, that's the plan. But you know life - It can place detours at your wheels.
Still haven't found a cycling buddy, so if you're interested, give me a call on 61 7 3862 4176 or 61 414 584 306 or leave me a message here or send an email to email@example.com or ..... (nah, that's enough options).
If you're interested in buying a great touring bike give me a call and I'll sell you my Cannondale ST700 with head-shock, 58.5 cm "effective top tube" size, panniers, Shimano Deore gears, etc. Well-loved and maintained.
Bye for now.....Trevor
