New Pictures/Nouvelles Photo

Arvon has sent me some pictures of the finished bicyle... yes the finished bike you read it here first. I actually will soon have it. We are arranging for us to meet at 100 Mile house so that he can show me all the details of putting it together. I can hardly believe it. I have been stuck in a sort of passive waiting mode. I did not feel I could really do anything until I knew for sure that I would have this bicycle. It has been a little longer than anticipated... so the departure date is definately moved back.
First I have to check it out and play with it for a while to be certain that it will support me and my friends for 23000km.

Wow, I can feel the excitement building. I think I'll be back in September... I hope I'm in good enough shape to join you for a leg of the trip... Perhaps I'll need some time to visit family and train a bit first.

Yes it is getting pretty tangible now.
I can't wait to pick up the bike now... I was really patient but now all of a sudden I can't contain myself I just want my new toy right now!

As for the training don't wait till you get back to Vancouver you might as well start now. Really the beauty is that because its a tandem you can't fall behind. So whatever extra energy I have you are the direct beneficiary. Equal opportunity cycling is what i'm all about :)
