We arrived in Rwanda safely yesterday and today (Monday) picked up our bikes and had all the adjustments done. I tried to get a motor fitted to mine but was overruled! The cycling starts on Tuesday at 9am with main roads in Kigali closed off, police outriders and lots of local media interest. My only hope is that they don't follow us up the first big hill! Tuesday's ride is over 80km.
I met with Dr Bunini and his son Jules from Gilgal early this evening for over an hour. They were delighted to receive the Bloomfield Christmas card and a gift from the Brownies that will be put towards finishing a building for children's ministries. It turns out they are both invited to the launch of the Cycle of Hope tomorrow morning and a dinner for partners on Wednesday evening so hopefully I will get to meet them again this week.
I'm off now for an early night in preparation for tomorrow.
