Crikey! when you read it it sounds hard work, fair play to ye both!!!
Hello Turlough and Ronan
Have just read through the blog (link forwarded by Dermot) of your epic bike pilgrimage. Some journey!! I like the way you describe it all – pithy, which suits well the nature of the journey and the small opportunities you must have to write. It is tough terrain you are going through and understandable you have taken the occasional train. Your illness Ronan must have made the going extremely hard – hope your feeling better now. You will be two fit and happy pilgrims when you get to the end of this ride. Will show to Madge.
Thanks Pete for your comments!
Its a great adventure!

Brilliant stuff boys. You described it very well considering the limited time you’d have had to capture all the details in print. Well done Ronan, great achievement considering you were under the weather. Lonely Planet will have to watch out, we might have Looney Planet soon if you capture all your adventures as well as this one
