It’s been a great week with Paris2Romers Andy, Keith and Neil, plus Sue enjoying cooking, walking, swimming and joining in the virtually non-stop banter.
Cycling-wise we’ve covered 310 miles, and probably more than replaced the calories burned with Sue’s Splendid Suppers, and the odd slice of flan and ice cream. I know that Neil’s been rather impressed by the scenery, and I don’t think he’ll ever believe me again when I describe a ride or diversion as ‘average’. On their last day we had both a walk into town, and a gentle ascent of Col de Pennes via Recoubeau, with the seemingly never-ending descent via Aucelon.
Anyway, off they went before sunrise today, heading for Calais, and I headed off to market, then Crest, for a leg-stretching 50-mile ride. I’ve still got ten days here, and a few more miles to cycle.
