Bike Ride Begins Saturday

Wow... it's about to start. The bike ride I've been training for for days... maybe 3 or 4 days even. Isn't that terrible?
Actually I feel pretty good and the left knee is holding up really well (thanks Lord.) So, it's a 9 day ride covering about 1,000 km (600 miles.)
I am going by train to Blackheath (in the Blue Mountains) on Friday. I've had to box the bike, which means take it apart a bit. Maybe if we buy a Bike Friday tandem in the US next year we'll be able to cart our bike around a bit more easily.
The Bike for Bibles ride (BFB) is raising money to support Kenya and Uganda in the fight against HIV/AIDS and also to develop reading materials for the young kids. Seeing I have a desire for a good education for all, it's a pretty good issue to be fundraising for. Feel free to support me if you'd like to. I haven't reached my goal yet.
Next time I log on I'll be able to give you a bit of information on how the ride went/is going.
Oh by the way, my brother Bill has arrived from Canada! Great news. Hopefully I'll catch up with him shortly.

All the best with the ride Keasty, and prayers for the knee. Wish I could be there with you. Hopefully Perth to Adelaide (or Canberra) will be on next September, and maybe will have the pleasure of your company then?
