Garry McGivern’s cycling around the world, Friday 24th-August-2012, Sayotesh to Reyneu. 112 miles. I’m absolutely knackered tonight. It’s been a hard ride today of over one hundred miles all off-road. I think I was on a bit of a mission today. A few truckers I spoke to last night said it would take me three days to cycle the two hundred kilometres to Reyneu. I said two! Anyway, it wasn’t quite two hundred kilometres, although not far off, but I did it in one!
And that was all on very little sleep last night. I didn’t sleep particularly well. The bed, or rather wooden slates with a quilt on top, was very uncomfortable. And every time I fidgeted, the slates would creek and wake me up.
I’m off to bed now, totally knackered and worn out! I’m hoping there’ll be asphalt tomorrow!
Don’t forget the main reason behind my ride. I want to raise as much money for cancer research charities as possible. After my wife, Josie, died of breast cancer in 2007, aged only 42. Even the smallest donation helps. You can donate to Cancer Research UK or the Australian National Breast Cancer Foundation. Click on either one to donate. Every little bit helps to rid the world of this cruel disease.
