Distance cycled …… 69.2 miles So boys how would you sum up today in 3 words?…… Heat, Mileage, Flowers! So yesterday certainly wasn’t the easiest of days for the boys, in fact it’s probably best to say that they’ve had a rather eventful first couple of days in France. Yesterday’s major wheel-failure meant they had … More Velodyssey Day 3 Rohan to Guenrouët
Distance cycled ……. 58.6 miles So boys how would you sum up today in 3 words? ….. Tranquility, Breakdown, Genie! Well after a really good first day’s cycle, with just a rather large music Festival adding interest to the day’s ride, the boys settled down and after putting the tent up, tell me that they … More Velodyssey Day 2 Maël-Carhaix to Rohan
Distance cycled- 65 miles So boys how would you sum up today in 3 words? ….. Thirsty, Concert, Laughing Yesterday saw the boys complete the ‘prelude’ of their adventure with a successful ride across Dartmoor & apparently what was a rather good fish & chip supper in the Barbican. It was a great little test, … More Velodyssey Day 1 – Roscoff to Maël-Carhaix
The start of the boys’ long distance cycle ride, an adventure that will see them ride through France to the Mediterranean, travelling from Moor to Med along the Eurovelo Velodyssey route and beyond. … More Velodyssey and beyond. Only 1500km to go
I can’t believe it, the Tour de France has started, the wonderfully jolly music that goes with the coverage is a constant refrain at home and seemingly all of a sudden it’s only 11 days until they start their cycle. All being well two weeks today the boys will be starting their third full day … More 3 boys, 3 bikes, 1 tent – 1500km – 11 days to go
I can’t believe where the last few months have gone – it’s something we often say, but for one reason and another it really does feel as if Christmas was just a few weeks ago for us. All of a sudden reality has hit that 4 weeks from today Andy & the boys will be … More Le Grand Départ – 4 weeks today
You could never say that the planning for this trip has been easy – from the logistics of pulling it all together, to making sure we have all the right equipment even making sure we can transport bikes around whilst our main car is in France. That should be enough to worry about, but no … More One dislocated shoulder & a worrying few weeks
I think it’s fair to say that we now have enough equipment to stock a small shop – in fact we recently opened the door of our Chapel for me to sell some of my jewellery (yes I know it sounds posh, but it came free with the house & has proved to be very useful!) and more than … More 3 months to go
It’s less than 18 weeks to go now until the start of the cycle ride from here to the Med and we’ve seen a bit of a change in our plans, which means that only my hubby & 2 boys will now be doing the ride. This isn’t because I’m worried about doing it, (in fact … More And then there were 3……..
I had a quick look at the calendar this weekend and realised that in 25 weeks time we will be pushing our bikes off the Ferry at Roscoff and starting, what we hope will be, a fantastic cycle ride through France to eventually dip our toes in the Mediterranean at Sete. As I mentioned in the last … More 25 weeks and counting…..
