this time, I'm NOT TRAVELLING QANTAS (see below) and I have a new bike - a Surly Long Haul Trucker - which I reckon will be perfect for the job! The Surly has 26" wheels (good for travelling in places like India which retains the Imperial system of measurement), drop-down handlebars which I now prefer to the straight bars, and a steel frame, and is a little lighter than the mountain bike I used for my last trip. No suspension this time, but this shouldn't be a problem.

So, after 2.5 years I'm planning on returning to India by cycling from Kathmandu, Nepal to Delhi; I'm leaving Melbourne on 26th October '08. My planned route is at: http://www.bikely.com/maps/bike-path/Kathmandu-to-Delhi-via-Pokhara
