    Amazing! Wonderful!
    Your photo actually brought tears to my eyes (for some reason?!) .. probably because your courage, passion and endurance have been sublime!

    And your sharing it (with fantastic writing and photos) has been a gift to the rest of us.. (reading comfortably from a couch or chair, I might add!) Thank you! WHAT AN INCREDIBLE FEAT!

    (now … when are you cycling back to Seattle ?!?! would love to see you!)

    James and Sarah, you two are AWESOME!! Congratulations!! Chris, Mary and I were planning to wave to you from down under in New Zealand (two weeks from now), but you beat us to it. And I see you beat the Antarctic winter too….not an iceberg in sight. Well done! Looking forward to Skypeing with you soon…from wherever you are planning to cycle to next. Love, Junie xx

    Fantastic achievement – looked tough at times but a lifetime of memories I imagine – look forward to hearing some in person when you get back – love Steve and Dawn


  18. Gareth Collingwood Says:


    Thanks for all the great photos and stories and for the great interview! I remember the mix of emotions and thoughts I had that you must be having at the end of such an epic ride.

    I predict you will be riding on another adventure in the not-too-distant future. I know I will be! Maybe I’ll see you on the road somewhere!

    Big Sur was awesome!

  21. Margy Says:

    congratulations Sarah & James, how fantastic, What else is there to do?????? Don’t answer that, your Mum will have a fit???
    So many memories and experiences, do we book tickets to see the show?
    Happy Easter, don’t know if you are able to celebrate or even be at Church, but will be thinking of you both.
    Have worked really hard this year, at least it seems so, am feeling very tired and longing for Easter Monday, complete rest I hope!!!!!. Must be getting older, can’t stand the pace anymore!
    Off to Helen & Phil’s for dinner on Sunday, for once I am not cooking Easter Sunday Lunch, all of us from here will be together, Chloe’s doing the Egg Hunt, even got out of that this year!
    Off to P’Boro’ on Tuesday to celebrate your Mum’s Birthday. John is doing well I hear, haven’t spoken for a few days, but he is taking a back seat this week, so, hopefully he will be feeling good.
    Take care as you begin your way home, Much love, Margy xx

    Great to meet you guys – really enjoyed celebrating reaching the end of the world and reenforcing a few British stereotypes :-)

    Safe pedalling back to the UK.

    Hello Sarah

    I’ve been irregularly dropping in and out of your blog ever since you left, being both impressed and jealous. Just wanted to say Very Well Done on your achievement; I am in awe.

    The office here all say hi (we’re still all here) and want to know where next!

    best wishes and many, many congratulations!

    Quinton (and the bones mob)
