The route and accommodation is finalised. Just over a month to go.

It has come around quickly. In just over a month we will be heading to Folkestone to ride our bikes onto the train to head over to France!

The last few weeks have been busy. We have finalised our route, and we have also booked all our accommodation! That in itself was hard work, but if it wasn’t for the internet it would have been near impossible!

The logistics of our trip:

  • We will be away for 16 days
  • We have booked 13 different hotels in 7 countries (we will be staying 3 nights in Rome)
  • We are riding through 11 countries.
  • We are riding 3014 miles in 60 hours (according to Tyre)

This is the route we are taking (coming back through France):

My bike has just been serviced, and new tyres put on. I took a ride out to Norfolk this last weekend and made some adjustments so I am very comfortable on the bike now (I raised the seat, and adjusted the gear lever up so my foot fits under it better).

We are getting excited about getting going now, won’t be long before we are on the road!
