It's 5:32 am and I've just woken up. In a few hours I'll be riding off into the distance on the first day of a 32 day odyssey across Australia.
Anything that hasn't been prepared as yet is too late. It's now time to ride.
I've been waiting for this day for a couple of years.
The nerves are mixed with excitement as we head towards an incredible adventure.
Hobart - here we come.
