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.

We went over to Slovenia to try some snow mountain biking with Slovenian cyclist Tadej Valjavec. It was great fun playing around in the snow.

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.
