Today is a big day and a massive challenge, not only for me but for everyone of us. So for a something different, I’ve asked everyone to write a bit about there day. First from Dunc and Westie who started in an earlier pen, so they set off first at around 6:56am.
Really surprised myself today and rode really well and absolutely loved it. It was a brilliant route and really well supported by all the locals. It was so so hot though and proved to be too hot for a lot of riders. Not the Beagle though, I kept picking away at the miles one by one. See some fantastic scenery and some massive birds of prey. We all did amasing, especially the girls. well done all.
After a well deserved beer or two. We cycled over to the cable car, to get a lift back. Westie treated us to the tickets, thanks mate 👍. Then a ride down the hill to the chalet.
Dunc and Tris sorted some food, which was spot on lads. Then we drove to Annecy to fetch the cars. I went along so I could get my run in. Westie dropped me off up the road, a nice steady down hill for a mile. Felt so knackered and my food was giving me a t of indegestion. Also i had a slight pain in my right knee, understandable after today. Annecy is bouncing with life, loads of people enjoying the sunset and the bars and restaurants. Definitely somewhere I want to take Babs. I aslo got to run with the water glistening next to me, while watching the sunset over the mountains.
Rich picked me up after my two miles and we headed home. Got showered then packed and ready for an early leave tomorrow. Then we all chilled in the living room, all writing this blog.
