Ahead of us – 25,000km. Sydney to Dublin by bicycle, through 28 countries and attempting to run a 64km ultramarathon in each country we set foot in. It’s a long, long, long way to Tipperary, I think John McCormack, who penned the tune, would agree to us throwing in the few extra “longs” on this occasion.
