Steve, when are you leaving Hinton, and what is your proposed route for the first week or so? Mainly, I'm wondering if you are coming down Red Deer way at first.

And ... are there any other Round-The-World cycletourists cycling somewhere out there who check in here now and then? If there are, do you have a website where you've been logging your travels?

I find the whole idea of cycling around the world fascinating. I don't know if I'll ever be able to afford to do it all in one go, but I am hoping to eventually do it a bit at a time. I've already cycled on three continents! But I've got a lot more to go.
