Some Blog information

I tend to write my blog posts in the late evenings, before going to bed. They are full of typos, and occasionally have some coding mistakes, such as wrong maps, broken links, or messed up pictures. I'm sorry for that, and I always try to fix it as soon as I can. Some days, the blog is written from inside a tent, and updated through my phone's data plan, so really not the best conditions.

Having said that, if two days go by without a blog post, it's probably a sign that something's gone bad. Either my laptop stops working, or I'm dead. One of these is likelier than the other.

Anyway, no one cares about all that, so let's just jump right to the biking!
