The questions I was asked most frequently in the 14 talks I gave for Sustrans this week:

How many punctures did you get?
Did you get sick?
How did you go to the toilet?
How did you take the photos?
Did your bum hurt?
Would you do it again?
What was your favourite country?
What was your favourite food?
What was your best moment?
What was the most dangerous thing that happened?

If you want the answers you’ll have to come along to a talk!

    Where and When are your talks Al?

  3. Hi,
    Thanks very much for the question on my blog. I’m afraid I don’t have
    any talks to the “general public” lined up right now – they are all at
    schools/conferences etc…
    I’ll definitely post here though when there is one available!

    Im doing a project at Bournemouth University and i’m looking into the problems Cycling expeditionists have with their tents. Is it awkward to pack? how could this be improved? Whats the impacts of having so much weight on the bike? What are the issues you came acrros if any with all the gear you had on your trip.

    Please help me understand the problems you faced on your trip to help me design a solution.

    Kind Regards

    Catherine Le Sueur
