No regrets, looking back the worst thing about the challenge wasn’t the pain or the tears it was having to pee behind a bush…….I don’t do bushes!!!!!
Arras to Compiegne another 80 miles not so many hills today. Paris tomotrow, then I should be free of my shadows Dr. Dan and Dr. Mo and I can party all night with the firefighters charity! If you read this dan & mo I’m only joking you have been great, thanks.
Calais to Arras, mlsty start lots of welcome support from fellow cyclists. Tough day but we made it. Big thanks to everyone who got us there and nice team meal tonight.
Made it to London. Another nice day.Tesco say every little helps not when it is one of their carrier bags tangled in your sprockets and both chains off in leyton high street. Any way early start tomorrow so TTFN
Thanks for the lovely send off from the cathedral. Day one complete knees and bums confirm. Broxted hotel very welcome, bike running like a dream. Weather holding up. Time for some R & R.
Well here goes folks, see you after Paris. Will try and keep you updated so keeping checking the blog.
Not been a good week for training due to the weather, bike going in to be serviced ready the big day and also I’ve had a bit of a gippey stomach due to too much wine I think or was it the gluten! Anyway, everything is packed and distributed to our 2 hotels before leaving the country. Usually I have the problem of what to pack and end up taking the kitchen sink this time it’s the opposite…….how does a girl travel light! NOT VERY WELL!!! Dogs are being looked after by neighbours even though they have 3 themselves so they should have fun! Tom is staying with Abbie and her mum Jackie so I know he’s safe so I shouldn’t worry but I do. I’m sorry I will miss his first day back at school, I shall miss his teenage mood swings and I will miss my dogs. Don’t think I shall sleep too well tonight even with sleeping tablets. I’m hoping I won’t find this trip too difficult after all the training doctors been messing with my medication cause there is no sinemet plus it’s starting to affect me but hey!…….my little sis is coming to wave me off tomorrow that bit of news made my day.
