The last time that I wrote to you all SaddleDrunkers, I was in Japan.

 Off she goes again...see you in China

I know I should have kept you updated on everything, but please accept my apologies.

At @SaddleDrunk we have been really busy getting a few things sorted. Like designing & manufacturing more clothing and accessories, which have been ordered and will be arriving the beginning of next week. A few unexpected projects have come our way, which is excellent and exciting. Also the most important was getting flight tickets, a visa, accommodation for myself to attend a couple of events in China.

At the moment I am 33000ft up in the sky and I have slept nearly all 10 hours of the flight to Chengdu, China . We should be landing in less than 52 minutes, as I write. I will be joining a few other riders/friends from New Zealand, American and Britian to form a team to wear the CCN Cycling Team colors. We will be taking part at the Tour of Chengdu, a 70km road race held in the GP2 Circuit Track tomorrow morning. 

 Landing in Chengdu, I could admire snow-capped Tibetan Mountains
