tongue.png I can do more than 99 km a day;

sometimes I go for my 90 days report to Sakon Nakhon and return home, in the same day of course;

it's a 200 km ride .

I cycle since nearly 50 years; maybe it's also for/because of that...

Doing about 15,000 km a year , here in Thailand , since 8 years .

Tomorrow, I don't cycle; stay at home with my six dogs;

maybe a visit to my friend Jon; I have some TV series to give for him .wai.gif

What is in the plastic box on the back of your bike? I have a hybrid bike, the mountain bike is too much road resitance with its fat tyres for me lol.

I went one time to Chiangmai 150 km. 8 hours cycling (by cat eye computer.. not including stops).

Thank u Aussie69 ;

I retired here, in Thailand, nearly ten years ago;

living in a very little village in Issan, what to do when you are too old to work in the rice fields;

Too old, I don't know, but it was not my work in France;

I was a trucker, autista as they say in Italy ;

Since a long time I like to cycle and to play bowling;

the bowling I know about is in Udon Thani, far from my village and I don't know if they have teams and competitions so I cycle as I do since nearly 50 years .

No, no, no, I don't want to see that!

For me this is a major case for "back home right now!" gigglem.gif

Fortunately, there are no roads like this around my home...

Cheers,

Ray
