  1. Not quite as plucky as were those young ladies back in the great but ominous year of 39, but far more plucky than most others to follow in such fine wheel tracks.

    Just keep going till you get there!!

    Good luck from everyone at Burgmann College.

  2. Just finished reading the side by side journal up to your arrival in Paris. Most enjoyable read. I look forward to continuing to to follow your progress as you wend your way through Europe.

  3. what an adventure …. and hopefully you will still be feeling fit at the end . I hope you have also enough time for the nice food and wine on the way …. dibb dibb ,dobb dobb

  4. WAY TO GO, ROBIN!

    Scanning through the side by side journals (will read them fully later after my conference with farm workers here in California), i get this idea: why don’t you sell this (if you still haven’t) as a concept for a feature film using precisely this device of side-by-side and cross-time view of life on the bike, ala “Julie/Julia” but more intimate as this is you and mum ? I’m sure there’ll be takers and it would be a great addition to your fund-raising initiative, i.e., proceeds of the film moving forward. (You could have Matthew Perry to play you! 🙂 Kidding aside, i hope you have a video cam with you to document this fantastic voyage for a cause. I envy you, Robin. Some guys have all the luck! Keep on pedalling!
