I could just have given Rafal £900, but then I won't have done this epic journey, owned a load of cycling stuff and felt much better about myself.

Yesterday the Polish team met their target of Ł10,000 (10,000 Polish Zloty or £1,800), so I've upped my target too to £1800 to match what they have raised, as I type this I am currently £270 short so this is soooo doable, I do have 871 friends on facebook afterall.

So far the £1,530 has been raised by 68 people, all of whom have my undying gratitude.

Turns out that I didn't have a puncture after al, apparently you have to pump up the tyres.
