Scotland to Scotland.....the long way
« on: July 14, 2017, 01:52:28 PM »
OK, the long awaited and , admittedly, not very well planned word tour has begun. After an uneventful and sleepless night crossing from Hull to Zeebrugge, we've been slowly acclimatising to the weather, warmth and change of well,... everything! Easy cycling along the canals and waterways of Flanders before negotiating the surreal industrial ghost town of Charlerois. A must if you like Ridley Scott movies ! Four days of easy riding came to an abrupt halt as we headed toward Dinant and now Rochefort where we've stopped for a rest day to gather our wits and gird oor loins! Tomorrow see us heading south east towards Bastogne then ever onwards to the Eurovelo routes and the Black Sea. Kit wise, everything has worked as planned. Both of us are on Nomads and I'm hauling around 30kg of gear plus my own (rapidly diminishing) 90kgs of too many pies. Linda's finding this initia exhertion tough but she's coping superbly well and spirits are good.
Huge thanks to everyone on this forum over he past year for their friendly advice and support. Next update when time and tech permits......
