Morocco

6 am- getting up for breakfast at the Hotel Tiznit. Looking forward to the second to last day’s riding on my six day trip to Morocco. Nic and Dick have joined me and the Craic is good.

Days are full. Up at dawn, small breakfast then eat all day while cycling in between. Arrive back at accommodation then eat, sleep and rise to do it all again. Great!

Had my first Haman last night and my screams could be heard across Tiznit like the call to prayer.

This trip is fantastic and will put a lot of endurance miles in my legs provide I can recover from it from it.

Sitting on back seat of the Aer Lingus flight to Agadir. Drove to Dublin airport this morning with Nic and Dick. Ireland was shrouded in cloud. Enjoying the bright sunshine and the great view of the Portuguese coast.

Will be arriving at our accommodation late this evening and hopefully I can get my bike together tonight so that I can have a relaxed breakfast tomorrow

Sorry to repeat myself but weight loss is the key. The last couple of weeks have seen me get in less training. Thanks mainly to a mystery tour bus pub crawl around Co. Limerick that meant I had to spend a day in bed recovering and a weekend away in Manchester. I am sitting on the flight as I write this.

Next week I’ll get a couple of spins in before I head to Morocco for a weeks mountain biking
