Day 0: The beginning of all this…

Posted by admin On Diciembre - 1 - 2009

By Iván.

I remember “day 0” very clearly, the first day. I already knew that José Luis, my partner in this case, was a supportive person, although you can figure that out through time and hours of conversation, but I’m losing track. “Day 0”, in a train from Alicante-Castellón, coming back from a workday at one of the peninsular delegations of the company where we work. We started talking enthusiastically, like in so many other occasions and THE IDEA that had been circling his mind for so long came up. Not only did he share it with me but he suggested I participate… THE CHALLENGE: a long-distance trip riding a tandem bicycle, and immediately the reason and the purpose, the why (the fight against cancer). We started giggling and making comments and suddenly the doubt… is it true what we are saying? Does it make any sense?… and what’s more, are we willing to do it? Let’s go for it!

After discussing the subject for days in order to properly approach the challenge, after revising calendars and dates and even checking out various routes, we made up our minds for this one and adopted it as our own, as if we were the first to do it. We studied printed and digital maps, balanced the pros and cons, the profiles and temperatures, and last, we planned our physical preparation that we are executing now.

Its like if we were preparing our bed to be able to sleep well and reach our dream.
