"Phil, can't believe your finally fulfilling your dream.You must be sore as hell especially legs and a**.This is quite an achievement. How's the weather I'm sure it impacts your ride? Any one else from Westfield on the tour? You must be losing weight with all that effort and must be eating like a horse . Would enjoy hearing of the journey maybe over some beers. Good luck only 3 more weeks. Congrats! P.S. Nice smile in your picture "
