Preamble

It's 1980 and I'm at school in the UK. Once a week, we have to do a cross-country run. And more often than not it involves "Two laps of the perimeter today, lads". Off we all go, trying to finish two circuits of the school grounds and get showered and dressed before the bell goes for the next lesson.

Fast-forward 30 years. Now a bit of a cycling nut, I'm living in the Czech capital, Prague, working as a translator, and looking for a new challenge for 2010 and beyond. For some time now, I've been thinking of cycling around the perimeter of the Czech Republic.

Not two laps, as that would be silly. Just one.

But how and when?
