It’s all in the planning


Aren and Steven giving their full attention to mapping some good roads for me. In the background is the long suffering Tara, who has no doubt seen it all before – blokes arguing over which way to go! But please do as they ask and learn to ride, you won’t regret it Tara.

After being overloaded with road numbers and place names, the thought occurred that these guys would be tacking me the next day. I’d better pay attention and at least make some effort to head in the right general direction!

On that subject, I’m finding navigation a bit of a nightmare. I always manage to end up in the right place, generally by describing a large spiral with the destination being at the centre!

Thankfully after many U-turns I’m more comfortable with the actual riding. Like Aren said, “it’s like the Wild West”. I didn’t think about it at the time, but we’re actually in the far East – and he’s giving me directions!!

Great to meet you guys, thanks for looking after me.

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!
