Test-time. Last weeekend was spent checking we had all the kit, that we were happy with the bikes, trying out the new tent and some lovely sunny cycling.
Laura and Paddy's adventures by bike
It’s hard to convey how excited we were heading to Bridgwater to pick up our new bikes to cycle them back to London. Nor how exhausted but impressed we were when we finally made it home.
As we move into 2011 and start our countdown to cycling round South America for a year, it is good to look back at the trips of 2010 including Dunwich Dynamo, the Coast to Coast and our 600 mile trip along the North Sea Cycle Route to Denmark.
In May 2011, I’ll be leaving work, renting out my home and catching a flight to Rio de Janeiro to cycle around every country in South America. How did it come to this? Three years ago, I cycled the length of Britain from Land’s End to John O’Groats.
