For all the cycling we’ve done, neither of us had ever tried mountain biking. So last week, when we were in Cyprus for a last bit of summer sun, we decided to take a day off from relaxing and headed into the Troodos Mountains to give it a go.
Laura and Paddy's adventures by bike
We headed to the Isle of Wight for a few days cycling to enjoy some great sea views and a few good hills to test our legs.
Cycling from Le Havre to Paris we enjoyed perfect cycle lanes, quiet roads and fresh baguettes to fuel us on. We ended at the Eiffel Tower having enjoyed one of the nicest bike routes we’ve ever done.
London to Paris, everybody does it differently. Some people race it in 24 hours, for others it is the challenge of a lifetime and they raise thousands for charity. We were taking a more leisurely place to enjoy the views and highlights of the route.
When the invite arrived for my friend’s wedding in Perth this Easter it didn’t take long for us to accept. But before the wedding there was time for a hen party on Rottnest Island and a bit of cycling too.
