The Mongolian Derby
I have always fancied riding about a bit in Mongolia, I like big skies and I imagine they don’t get much bigger, so this ride sounded interesting.
It’s a 1000km charity ride in Mongolia, riding thirty different horses and it takes between a week and ten days to complete. When I want to convert kms to miles I divide by 8 and times by 5 so that gives me 625 miles and to do it in a week you’d be averaging just under 90 miles riding a day. Sore bum? I should cocoa (Cockney Sparra ref for those etymologists out there)!
Then I read the Warning bit about dying or being paralysed and the Cost bit about £6000 pounds (plus flights to Mongolia) and thought I’d give it a swerve this time. Maybe next year.
