I just got back from the FMC Foundation's Vietnam Cancer Cycle Challenge in November 2011. It was a fantastic trip and the ride of my life - through remote villages, past endless rice fields and water buffalo and children giving high fives. Together we raised over $190,000 for cancer research and has got me thinking about my next cycling adventure.
If you could cycle anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Patrick, when I first posted this we were in the early days of developing our next set of challenges... LEJOG just happened to be one we ended up launching - and we've got 15 people registered so far! In case you're still interested the link is http://www.fmcfoundation.com.au/ukcycle
I looked at that ride Juliette when it was featured in The Advertiser a few months ago. Doesn't fit in with my work schedule or finances unfortunately. Good luck with your ride, I'll do it myself one day.
France....could ride around there forever
Wow what fantastic suggestions, thanks everyone! Certainly makes the imagination run wild.
One thing the Vietnam trip proved to all the participants is that anything is possible (if you put your mind to it and are prepared to train!!)
Martin, someone has cycled in Antarctica. Think he used wheels with metal spikes.
Blast..well there goes that idea.
You can still do it. Just because someone else has done it, don't let that put you off. Now you know you need to get spikes for your wheels :)
is there a strava segment there yet? go for it, Martin!
It was some years ago that I saw on TV cycling in Antarctica. Probably a 30 minute segment on ABC. Before strava was common, perhaps even around. So Martin, you could set a strava segment, but need to investigate if any units that can cope with the extreme cold.
