Day 27: Arrived!

Day 27, Tuesday 3 October

Cassagnas to Mas des Costes, Tornac


Feeling: Elated!! I did it.

Brief blog – too much going on. Total distance cycled: 1372 kilometres = 853 miles. Arrived to great reception from Liz, Mike, Jane, and Simon.

Big thanks to all my fellow cyclists: Liz, James, Tomas, and Doug.

Set out this morning from our great B&B, the only place I know which has parking for donkeys:

Doug and I set off :

Last day in the saddle


Soon had bright sunshine as we descended through the Cevennes mountains.

That’s it. Too tired to do more now. Will do a sign off post with more pics tomorrow. Thanks to everyone for reading my blog.

    Well done Malcolm (and Liz, and James, and me, and Doug:). My thoughts are that life is really a downhill ride. All the uphills disappear from view once the view is clear. What’s next Mr Green?

    Wow! What an achievement. So proud of you Malc and Liz and Doug and James and Thomas. Proud to be called your friend and neighbour.
    Enjoy your arrival and all that that entails. Looking forward to seeing photos in tomorrow’s blog.

    Well done Malcolm and everyone else who took part. A great thing to have done. The blog was very good too. We’ve very much enjoyed following your progress. It feels like it’s all gone surprisingly quickly (though I bet it doesn’t feel like that for you!).
