Garry McGivern’s cycling around the world, Wednesday, 5th-September-2012, in Atyrau. It’s been a bit of an annoying day today, and I could have started to move again after going to the immigration police this morning to get my passport stamped again. It turned out that I didn’t need one. I had thought that that was the case, but I just wanted to double-check. It seems different if you arrive in the country by plane. It’s all very confusing!
Every time I’m off the bike for more than a day or two, my sciatica starts playing up. And I’ve now been off my bike for more than a week. And in quite a lot of pain! I’ll be glad to get back on my bike tomorrow. I don’t know what’s going to happen when I finish my ride and have to return to work. Maybe I’ll just have to keep cycling!
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.
