Training in East Africa

I've been training for months, and it's not getting any easier. The reality is that Ethiopia is a hard place for a 'ferenji' cyclist. Extreme weather changes, dangerous truck drivers, and rock-throwing children are all very real dangers here. I feel that this is a good taste of what the real expedition might throw at me. All the blogs I've read other people's tours sum it up as 'if you can survive Ethiopia as a cyclist, you can survive anything'.

I'm feeling strong, and confident. With 57 days until the expedition begins, I feel that I have the chops to do what I need to do. East Africa isn't just about getting by, it's about thriving against all odds.
