Remote Hilltribes of Vietnam March 17

Booked this trip and hopefully Indochina March 3rd before hand back to back with this trip as it fits in nicely and is good conditioning for the mountains.Pretty much a solo traveller and ancient.Will be coming from OZ

3 off us booked in for what looks like a wonderful experience.

Looking forward to the sights,food,hills and beer.

Coming from Scotland and England.

Enjoy the training!

Should be interesting as you will be coming out of winter very mild Spring here to date but temps in high 20c for next week finally.The North of Vietnam is a little milder than the South and the mountains shoild be as well I live about 60kms out of Perth in a really flat area no options forhills and mountains dont exsist so it will be kilometres to put endurance into the legs

Mild spring.....lucky you.....the weather here is nearly always rubbish.

Have looked at the itinerary and there are going to be some tough days in the hills.....and they will be the most memorable.

Some of the locations and vistas are breath taking......not that we will have much breath left.

How's the training going? We have hills locally but one of our party lives in Cambridge, where it's flatter than a pancake :-)

Best wishes

First trip is now a goer thankfully.Had to stop training last couple of weeks due to a death in the family but will start up again in a week or so Also frustrated by a few punctures but have begun using a flatbar bike I always find first couple of days awkward just love my road bike and dropbars but thats me Last trip I did was Central America and then Colombia back to back Loved colombia.Only thing to do is book a flight from Siagon to Hanoi

Sounds like it will be a full house on this trip.First trip ends in Siagon and will fly up to Hanoi on the 16th 80 bucks with Viet jet.Just back to training last week thou 41c in Perth region yesterday icy 34c today.If anyone is in Hanoi early perhaps a catch up.Mean while Happy Christmas to all

Had a crash Dec 30 in hospital till Jan 10 Two fractures pelvis and aggrivated 3 oldbfractures of ribs from an earlier accident in August ******* dog not on leash wasnt aware of fractures then but this latest is own doing at only about 15km Feb 18 is d day re okay on crutches and low dose of morph so hoping to go Have to be tail end Chatlie as cant get on abike to above date Thankful it wasnt at speed downhill cured menof reckless descents from now on hope i make it

I have returned from digital wasteland and am really sorry to hear about your crash.....take it steady and don't overdo the rehab training....hopefully then you'll make it to Hanoi.

I would say happy new year but it doesnt seem very apt :-(

D day is still more than 2 months away ....I'm sure that Aussie grit will meant that you are at the start line in March.

Avoid dogs & keep taking the drugs.

Best wishes from Scotland

 

 

On an ecercise bike from today can walk without crutches.Conceded to age have first set of glasses Bizarre and some adjustments needed as everything slants down to the right Determined to go Feb 18th is D day Wont be on a normal bike till then so the first trip will be prep for our trip.A lot of training down the drain but it has helped recovery to be quicker depends on x rays House sitting at moment trying to become d institutionalised from hospital stay eg hanging for coffee at 10am and 3pm I always love giving cheek to younger riders but this has sobered me up in regards to speed etc.Hope all goes well with u guys looks like it will be a full client trip

Not turned a pedal in over 6weeks and await clearance 18feb.X-Ray yesterday dont stand results so going to Raf(local doc) tomorrow for an opinion before specialist on 18th. Gives me 10days to get a few small rides in as I do a couple of weeks in Thailand and Cambodia before this trip I will fly up from Saigon to Hanoi but will be there a day earlier if anyone else is let me know.
