Friday 6th July. Geneva. Well that’s chalked off 3,000 MILES! (3,040 actually). A really hard day’s ride across the mountains. Weather mixed but it could have been much worse. As well as those punishing ascents there were some really good downhill sections for several kilometres at a time. Must say I’m feeling rather chuffed at … More 3000 in Geneva

I’m sure it just needs careful … More Rivers and Locks
Monday 25th June. A near perfect day (the wind was the one negative factor). Lovely sunny day and constantly changing scenery following the Loire. Oh, and flat. Left leg holding up well but a few aches and pains in other places as I try to protect the leg and other joints, muscles and tendons suffer … More 2,500 Miles Done
Sunday 24th June. Now setting out following the Loire including umpteen chateaux. I must say it’s very pleasant cycling along decent tracks and quiet roads with hardly any traffic. Now in Blois.
