I have now done a month’s worth of cycling…it feels a lot longer!
Today was long and it is now later than normal so this will have to be quick… In view of that, I guess it’s quite convenient that not much really happened today: the driving got a bit worse (if that is possible) and I did have to go off-road a couple of times in order to avoid being all too involved in a couple of risky overtakes.
I have also realised that bridges generally offer up some very good views. Unfortunately, they generally do not offer a very good place to stop to take a picture.
The most exciting part of today has been this evening. Murudeshwar is home to a very big temple and a very big (I think the biggest in the world) statue of Shiva. All very good to look at and I did manage to get a few photos, although they won’t be up for a while as internet connection is hard to come by.
That’s pretty much it really. So in summary: long and not that exciting, although it is India so I didn’t get bored!

PS: Chris, in answer to your FB post, I would love for you to be my life coach. I think after this trip I may need a bit of guidance…

Tom, I was reading yesterday’s post and so looked up Benaulim. Admittedly only on Google, Trip Advisor and Thomson Holidays.
My view, albeit born of sitting in an office on a grey London afternoon is that Benaulim is just a tad better than “OK”. People are willing to sit on a charter flight for 10 hours to get there. All you’ve had to do is cycle all day, every day for the last month!
I am so jealous you cannot believe. Enjoy and be careful.
I trust you’re not turning into one of the socks and sandals brigade Neil!! H
Great work Thomas. Next time you get a bit hot, just remember it is cold, wet, dark and windy here.
Have fun. Will.

Think yourself lucky Charlotte, I nearly posted something in response to Will’s comment but thought better of it …
Tom, I really don’t know how you are banging away at 100 plus miles a day and still able to take in so much of your surroundings, must be a young brain thing. I thought your socks and sandles looked fab, and even more so the paving detail, no chewing gum stuck all over it, nice one.
