First blog of the trip

Day 3 and the first blog...mainly due to lack of internet connection. First of all a massive thankyou to all involved in making the day such a success...especially Kate at Alfs restaurant. The weather was great and we had about 25 riders come down to start point. I did my first ever live radio interview and had a couple of newspapers there. Ive got limited internet access tonight so thought id quickly post a few pics ~

getting ready for 'take off'

Nick Baker, Kate from Alfs and me

crossing the river at salcombe (thank you to the ferryman for a free crossing!)

Early on day 2 (only yesterday...seems ages ago!) at Smeatons tower on Plymouth Hoe

The terrain has been incredible so I thought id post a screen shot from my GPS of todays ride.

Also a big thank you to Mike Davidsion for sorting out the spot tracker at the last minute. Ive already had loads of comments about how great it is.

And thank you to mr and mrs Curtis (no relation) who made a donation when I met them at St Anthonys Lighthouse today.

Spent the first 2 days cycling with Nick Baker the zoologist (from BBC, National Geographic etc.) which was great. had a good laugh, interesting chats and I learnt some naturey things. Thanks mate, look forward to our next leg of the journey

off to bed now, big day down to the lizard tomorrow.

  1. naturey things?? heh heh. I didn't realise Nick's mum also had OC. Bah. Bloody horrible disease. So cool that he spent the 2 days with you - is he joining you again?

    We are all following your progress on FB, Twitter and now SPOT [that is brilliant!]. This is a GREAT thing you're doing :o)
