We keep getting lost…..

25 07 2011

Well we have arrived in Washington DC and only 2 days into the trip, I’m shattered, we haven’t even starting cycling yet…….

We have had a hard and stressful first few days organising the hire car, buying equipment, setting up the bikes but the hardest has been navigating the American road system. We have got lost on every single trip we have made so far. On our first night it took us 3 hours to drive and transport our luggage to the Ramada Hotel, which was only 3 miles away!!!!!!!

I had thought before we came that during these first few days we would have a fair amount of driving to do but that we would have enough time to relax and do some sight seeing. With the cycling only a few days away now we need to get some rest to ensure that we are fresh and ready to start cycling 3000 miles in 30 days. At least the bikes are in good order and we are on track to start cycling on the 27th…..

Tomorrow we are driving down toRaleigh,North Carolina for a USA Launch Party organised by American coffee roaster Counter Culture Coffee. Then its off to the starting line……Exciting times…..

Love to all,

Keep your chin up, guys! You can do it, and you’ll figure out the road system very soon! Might want to think about laying out for a GPS though!
