Bike-Ride to Australia 3rd-March-2012

Bike-Ride to Australia Saturday 3rd-March-2012. Tanggamus to Bandar Lampung 59 miles. I was feeling a lot happier today. Maybe I’d overdone it over the last couple of days and was a bit run down! I’m still not happy about the sponsorship, though. I’m sure everybody can afford at least one pound!

Believe it or not this was my hotel last night

Sitting eating breakfast this morning, I was watching the school run. There are no mums in their expensive 4x4s. Here it’s all scooters. I even saw one scooter with one adult and four children on it!

I’ve still had plenty of hills today, but at least they haven’t been vertical, and I could ride up them! Going up these hills, I sweat so much. It always looks like I’ve wet myself! I’ve definitely got the wrong colour shorts.

Short ride today. After the last two long days, I thought it might do me some good to stop early. I was also a little worried about finding another hotel. And knowing Bandar Lampung was a big city, I wanted to get a hotel with internet access. I’m still having problems with my phone and need to talk to Vodaphone. Some chance of that! I might even stop for two nights. I’m not too sure yet.


I really wonder why I bother staying in these wannabe posh hotels! Oh yeah, the internet! But apart from that, there’s no other reason. The bar ran out of beer tonight. I should get a refund on my room for that! Despite running out of beer, I had quite an enjoyable evening watching Liverpool v Arsenal on the TV with the hotel staff.
