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.

    It’s an odd one as it lacks the usual bipartite rhyming of apples and pears etc ; ) Love a duck.

  2. The Wray Barton Wrecking Crew

    I’ve always fancied a bit of a trail in Canada, or maybe even a drove in Australia. But the spiders put me off the latter.
