  3. One week to go ...

    Been training with a buddy who has a 6500 pound bike electric gear change,wafer thin tyres,made to measure and still beat him up the hills

    Today I reinstalled all my gears (winter training only use one gear )and the bike flew ...

    I did go to the Loire valley in the camper and leaked oil like a sieve,looked like a rusted pushrod tube ,fixed it with a couple of clips and a bit of metal

    Watch out on le tour for moi

  4. Well it all went a bit Pete tong !

    The week I was due to go I had to go to bludi Norfolk ! Surprisingly enough I did 240 km on the bike while I was there (4 days) the traffic was awful (for a pushbike) ..

    Anyway set off soon as I got back

    That nearly killed me it was awful

    That was better

    I decided to go into Spain and walk a bit of the compastella,but found this on the border..

    The main one from Spain I wanted to do was this ,I clocked up 50km up and down ...the lakes were amazing...

    I was having a few family problems,so on the way home I did a lovely scenic tour..

    The T25 went 1228 km faultless miles ,my handlebars snapped in half (over a wall) nearly hit a sheep doing 62 km down a hill and walking a couple of days my feet loved been back on the bike !

    Hope "life" doesn't get in the way next year

  7. Excellent. You luck lucky etc... Will have to see what coverage if any there is on telly. I don’t have sky sports or any of that kind of thing so will probably have to catch highlights on YouTube like I did with the Giro.
