Off the road again

I've been home from the first part of my cycle trip around the country for about a week now. I think my aching legs are almost back to normal, and pretty soon I should be able to look at my bike again.

I won't bore you with a list of places I passed through and slept and ate and repaired tyres, (you might have to wait for the book to come out for that ;-) but here are some of the things you'd have seen if you'd been riding beside me. Or ahead of me.



I finished in Malá Skala in the Český raj/Bohemian Paradise which is a little short of where I was hoping, but I guess I'll make it up next time. Thanks again to everyone who responded with tips and suggestions about the cycle trip. The ones I've put to use so far have been great.

Cheers, captain oddsocks.

Great slideshow Oddsocks. How you feeling after the trip? Not too much fitter i hope?

What a lovely YouTube slide show! It looks like you had a fantastic and colorful journey. I'm looking forward to hearing all of your stories in person.

Cheers Guys! I do feel a bit fitter, Icarus, but I'm back in the land of Chocolate pie and long, late dinners now, so we'll see how long it lasts ;-)

What's the music?

Trosky at the end. Now that brings back memories. Looking forward to part 2 already!

Wade, welcome to the blog and it's been a pleasure to have you at the hostel. I have a feeling I'll be reading some more of your blogs too.

Jennifer, It's a three-piece group called Traband and the song is from their album Přítel člověka (man's best friend). If you're in the Czech Republic, you can find it in any music store and I can highly recommend it.

Glad to bring back some memories Michael. The next part of the trip should be from about the 10th of Sept. to the 10th of Oct. I'll start in the Český ráj and head to Liberec from there. Might do a special slideshow of scenes from the top ten bars of Liberec...
