Fame At Last!

Well well!  Having previously joked about this blog being “the fastest growing bicycling blog on the web” (when in reality only my mum and a couple of people mistakenly looking for vampire slayers were logging in), I might now have to reassess.

With the publication of a little article on the trip in some of the Australian media (link above), buff3ysbicyclingblog has just gone completely viral! If people are actually going to look at this blog I might have to sharpen up my act a bit, i.e. get serious and take some of the less than polite language and commentary out of the postings. Or not.

To celebrate my belated (but, of course, much deserved) elevation to the realm of bicycle-touring and international media super-stardom, I’ve finished off a little video clip. Given that I’m now in Colombia, I gave it a bit of the Latin rhythm treatment. See link below.

  • Love the video!! Great soundtrack. Straight to the Christmas album (seeing as the Mothers day deadline has gone) Yes..fame!…hard to get a Telegraph here in Lithgow once news was out at Behive. But get one I did..bidding to a ridulous height..but well worth it. Fab article. Even got a mild ‘Wow’ from the teenage neice and nephew. High praise indeed. Again Congrats. P.S. Please, no editing due to increased readership – esp ‘Bag Stuffin Woman’ Original draft definately the best…love from us all. xx

    • Yes it is a great burden having to single-handedly hold up the circulation of the Murdoch press at the moment but that is just yet another challenge for the touring cyclist. I got lucky with the music (the title actually means, “The Traveler”).

  • Thanks for this nice movie ; ) But where is the synchronized swimming scene from Eureka? Double leg flip? Saludos de Panamá!
