Imagine riding your bike an average of 125 kilometres per day, everyday. Now imagine those kilometres are on a dry, dusty, corrugated road, it’s 49 degrees Celsius out in the sun. You ate two tuna sandwiches for lunch but you’re already hungry again and there’s still a good 25km to camp. You’re dehydrated, rationing your water trying to make it last so that you’ll have enough to get to where you need to go – but you’re drinking it way too fast and there’s no way that you’re going to make it.
Suddenly you glance up and you see a single shady tree in the middle of nowhere. Underneath is an angel with a jerry can full of water, another jerry can full of energy drink, your favourite flavour of PVM energy bar, fresh grapefruit and a bonus smiling face to fill your drink bottle. Maybe you’ll be able to make it to camp after all.
