Getting cooler.


Just when I thought I couldn’t get any cooler, I rode over the tropic of Capricorn line. South this point, the sun never reaches 90° to the earth at any time of the year. Between the tropic lines (Cancer and Capricorn), the sun gets directly overhead at some point.

It means that the lovely 30+ temperatures will slowly give way to more temperate climbs. The bags will get easier to pack as the thermals come out. I rode over some mountains today and got the first prickles of freshness in the cooler air. It’s coming alright!

Unfortunately I won’t cross the other tropic line or the equator by bike on the way home. Those are further south than Korea or Russia. Another one of those things to put on the list for next time!

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
