Bike-Ride to Australia-and-Beyond 13th-June-2012

Garry McGivern’s bike-ride to Australia-and-beyond Wednesday, 13th-June-2012 Hebron to Tecumseh. 84 miles. I’ve had a strong side wind today, which is a bit better than a headwind. But a bit worrying when the trucks come thundering past!

Riding along today, I passed a field of cows, who, as normal, just stare. I bet they’re thinking, what is that idiot doing. But these cows followed me along their field. It must have been for half a mile or so. And they only stopped when they hit the wire at the end of the field! I do like cows.

Cows
Inquisitive cows

I stopped off at a service station to buy some snacks. One girl had her front tooth missing, and the other didn’t have any teeth! They made me feel right at home!

I met Lori and Deb tonight when I went for a drink in “Ole dad’s” sports bar and grill. They introduced me to Rocky Mountain Oysters, which tasted lovely. Until I found out what they are, they’re bull testicles! While in the bar, I got interviewed for the ” Tecumseh Chieftain”, the local newspaper. They also took my photo. So I had to make sure I had my tooth in, or they might think I wasn’t what I’d said and that I was local!

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.
