I’m now 3 days into the penultimate leg of the #SambaCycle, which is also my final solo stage since my brother Martin is flying into Fortaleza with his touring bike to join me for the long ride to Belem. It’ll be weird to cycle with someone else, but I’m looking forward to it, not to mention having someone to hang out with in the evenings!
The other thing to note about these last 2,100km from Natal to Belem is that I’m now cycling west for the first time. The journey’s been heading north or east so far – at least that’s how it’s felt to me (but I guess you could argue BH to Brasilia was going northwest) – and remember that I took a bus on the previous westerly travel to Cuiaba:
So given that things are going to change soon, with two of us on the road, plus, I hope, growing press interest from back home, I want to ask a favour before I become too busy to think about this properly…
Regular followers of this blog – thankyou so much for your support and donations – please can you let me know your highlights of the #SambaCycle so far? Are there any particular posts/stories/photos/videos that are memorable for you? Of course I have some ideas about my own favourites, but would love to know yours too, maybe they’re the same as mine, but maybe some are different, which would be great to know! (BTW there’s a Search function at the bottom of the menu list to the right, in case you need it)
Please add a Comment to this post to tell me your highlights, or if you prefer email/FB/Tweet me (see Who Am I? page for contact details). And if I get no comments or messages then I’ll know this trip has bored you and so maybe I should avoid the press!
Thanks again, and while you’re thinking about it, perhaps you can share your highlights with friends/family/colleagues who might then be encouraged to make a charity donation?! Cheers.
Now here’s some photos from the last few days as I cycled through the dry but beautiful landscape of Rio Grande do Norte…
Update: turns out that ‘bump’ is an extinct volcano called Pico do Cabugi!
