    • Cheers Jonathan- I’m definately getting ‘stuck in'(500km so far), and it’s great to hear your getting into cycling. The Cas Leeds canal route is a really nice off-road route if your looking for a 40km adventure with your mates over the break. All the best, Chris.

    Happy travels

    Colin

    • Hi Colin,

      That hill sure was tough work, but I got to Avebury in the end so just a short ride to Marlborough for my media interview tomorrow. The sign is still next to me giving me a laugh! I think I cycled through Warminster actually, beautiful area, and thanks for the offer of a bed 🙂

      Take care,

      Chris

    • Thanks mate – Reims was a bit of a nightmare yesterday with my first (minor) crash and something stolen from my bike for the first time… but otherwise I’m enjoying every moment!

      Cheers

      Chris

  7. The concert went really well at school, the hall was full and mr p bathing in beans was a hit!! Hope its all going well for you 🙂

    • Thats great news Amber, well done! I wish I was there to see Sir swarming in beans!!! All is well; clocked up around 1700km now and about to turn north towards Scandinavia.

      Take care,

      Chris

  8. Well done! There is nothing more that I can really say but besides you are doing a really wonderful thing and the photos and the posts that I have seen so far, as a photographer (amateur), make me jealous. AWESOME STUFF!!

  9. Truly inspirational, we should all take a leave out of your book and do what we can to make a difference! I wish you the best of luck in your amazing journey!

    • Hi Wayne,

      Thanks for your kind donation to AICR on my justgiving page – it kept me going against all that headwind on the island of Pag! I’ve now reached Bosnia, where the legacy of recent wars are frequently witnessed from the roadside, and people’s hospitality has continued to provide shelter each evening.

      All the best,

      Chris

  10. Chris your are in our thoughts always, hope you get bike sorted.

    • Hi Dima thanks for your good wishes. I have now left China and entered Laos. Thanks for everything – it was a very nice experience to meet you that afternoon, and it will always be one of my favorite experiences in Kazakhstan! Chris.

  12. Hi Chris.Really good chatting yesterday, and I hope you remembered the sudden change in incline going down that hill. 🙂 Steve

    • Hi Steve,

      Thanks again for having me around to your home – it was a pleasure to meet you. haha it was far from a “sudden change in incline”… it was a killer! Although I did get my reward on the other side when I stopped at the hot springs before Ranong! Take care and hope to hear from you again… I just might pop in for a hello next time I’m in the region 😉

      Chris

    • Your not wrong Stephen – the food was just incredible. I’ve couchsurfed with locals too in Ipoh and Georgetown, so they’ve known the best places and dishes! I might be a bit heavier when I pedal up the Cameron Highlands tomorrow…

      Happy new years!

      Chris

    • Shocking! Cyclists aren’t having much luck anywhere at the moment – in NSW cyclist deaths have really increased this past year, and there isn’t much being done to improve our chances!

  13. Hi Sir,

    I hear you are close to the end of the cycle now, what you have achieved is truly remarkable and is a massive inspiration to other. Oh and I forgot, this is Ben Ledgeway from the Freeston Academy in Normanton, England, you taught English there just before you started your voyage to Australia. The English department is thinking about and wishing you well 🙂 Hope you remember me, I was the little fellow with the shaggy blonde hair and braces in year 9. I am truly amazed by the monumental mission you have very nearly accomplished in the name of cancer research.

    Good luck for the rest of your journey! And I would like to wish you all the best for life after the journey!

    I would love to hear back from you and to know how you are getting on 🙂

    Best wishes,

    Ben Ledgeway

    • Hi Ben,

      Great to hear from you buddy; ofcourse I remember both you and the class! Thanks for all your support – it means so much to know Freeston are following my adventure to the end! I hope that your also learning many lessons from Shakespeare as well as my expedition, haha 😉

      Please tell anyone from the class that I said hello, and that hopefully I can drop in for a hello before use all successfully kill the GCSE!!!

      All the best mate,

      Chris

  14. I’ve just listened to the Adelaide Radio interview. You’ll have to write a book LOL. I have a Thai friend who lives in Townsville, Queensland. Her dad is very ill with cancer, apparently he’s riddled with it. She came back last month, and the doctor told her he’d got months to live. So she went back to Aus to work. She’s been ill since she got back with Chicken pox of all things. Obviously Thais don’t do like parents in the west do, and try their hardest to get Chicken pox out of the way as kids. However I digress. She has just had the call to get back, he’s got 2 or 3 days. 7000 AUD for a flight on short notice! ( I wrote this, then rewrote it as it sounded like I was speaking Yorkshire Ha Ha.)

    • Hi Stephen

      Sorry to hear about your friend’s father – cancer affects so many people unfortunately!

      No book planned I’m afraid – the website has been enough work as it is, and I can’t wait to return to teaching 🙂

      All the best,

      Chris
