8600km cycled 

Today will be a long day for I want to get all the way to Murphysboro, as this is where the next WarmShower host lives. Yes, it’s the WS network that holds the ultimate power over my itinerary, lol (if you still don’t know what it is, please click HERE)!

I am nearing th...

Ever had that experience when you’re sweating your ass up a hill and then, on the down ride, you are so wet, the slope is so steep and you go so fast that you actually get cold chills? Well, welcome to my world. The road indeed continues with its ridiculous humidity an...

Today is all about...

...hiiiillllllssssssssssssssssss.

Yes, the Ozark Hills have decided to kill me. They are hot, humid and hilly as FUCK (pardon my French). The grades are so steep that I am not able to change my gears quick enough and am constantly anxious about my f...

Even though I have slept like a log for solid 10 hours, I am feeling a bit feeble today. It might be the aftermath of that ride I did on 2.5 hours of sleep and the medication. And the first day of my period. Egh…

I swallow the hills pretty okay, although I do occasional...

Today is not too hard, not too hilly, not too long. Wow, I think I am ready to drop everything and become a professional cyclist. Terry and Bill have sent me off with a stock of road snacks, so I can just go 4EVER.

Having departed from the original TransAm, I get to rid...

The anti-allergy medication I have been on for the past couple of days is absolutely killing me. I have not been able to fall asleep before 5.30 am AGAIN today, so we’re about to see how far one can cycle on 2.5 hours of sleep.

On the positive, the weather has gotten a...

Today is the total eclipse day. I have been toying with the idea of catching a ride to where the 100% epicentre is, but I drop it, deciding that 95% of a moon shade is just as good.

A quarter before the climax I pull into a tiny town and ask a couple sitting on the porc...

Dan takes me to his bike shop for a full complimentary check-up of my, rig courtesy of the owners. It’s Mark - the big boss of the Blue’s Bike Company - that greets us on this Sunday (sic!) morning. He trues the wheels, pumps the tyres, greases the chain, adjusts the g...

Many of us, I believe, are concerned with the omnipresence of technology. With the negative impacts of the ubiquitous social media. With real-life isolation the excessive usage of our electronic devices results in. With new technology-related addictions. The list goes...

There are three words to describe today: hot, humid and I-want-to-drop-everything-and-quit.

As per the introduction, the ride is difficult, I am sleepy and sticky. Whenever there is shade, I lie down and refuse to move. Whenever someone offers water, I linger on for the...
