I am joining with the jitters for the last 250km . Ride safe Kevin you brave Parky! See you Wednesday
The count down widget on the web-site now shows less than 24 hours until lift off… drive off? … roll off? … whatever. We leave in less than a day on a 500 km trek down Vancouver Island. It seems a long way to go sitting astride 15 kg or so of bicycle. That’s about 35 kliks per kilo of bike. The Apollo 11 team did about a million kilometres in something that started at 300,000 kg so they only got 3 km/kg. OK, if you only include the 6000 kg that came back to Earth it’s more like 200 km/kg. It was a lousy comparison anyways but I had to get back at the people who measure everything in units of olympic-swimming-pools.
Anyways, I wanted to talk about Parky jitters. Now that may sound redundant. Wouldn’t a “parky without jitters” be an oxymoron? Ha, ha! Not all parkies have…
