GDR maps

Postie battled through the worst weather in years to bring me these.

Bit off topic really, being an mtb ride, and bought a bit early. 2010 was my aim but the recession means I may stay on working for a year. 2011 was supposed to be PBP and qualifying for PBP, The Great Divide and then PBP may be a bit much for an old beggar like me.

[for those who do not know the GDR is a 2,500 mile ride down the Rockies from the Canadian border to Mexican border] Had my eye on this for 7 or 8 years.

I'd love to do the GDR ride, what an adventure. Cycling Plus ran a really good feature on it years ago when I was editor.

That was the article that inspired me to want to do it in the first place. Think I have it somewhere...

I've always liked the sound of that. Sadly, work means it will have to remain a bit of a pipe-dream for a while (unless I can swing a sabbatical some time - not likely now).

Good show!

(And for PBP, too. BIG respect to anyone who can ride long distances like that.)
