Eurovelo 6 – Roscoff to St. Nazaire to Basel – I Miss You Already

Well, I think I just heard the last reverberation of the fat ladies dulcet tones, so I guess that means that the challenge is over, and it’s time to head off into the tunnel for the post-match interviews. So Dave, were you pleased with your performance during the game? Oh yes, I think it all worked out quite nicely. The… Read more »

Eurovelo 6 – Day 19 – The Journey Home

      2 Comments on Eurovelo 6 – Day 19 – The Journey Home

Click Here for the Full Interactive Map A day of complete contrasts and first time experiences. First off, not on the bike today. Well, OK there was a little bit of biking, about 500 yards to the train station in Mulhouse, and about 1/4 of a mile across Paris from Paris Est to Paris Nord. No, the story today is… Read more »

Eurovelo 6 – Day 18 – Montbéliard to Basel (and back to Mulhouse)

Click Here for the Full Interactive Map Today could easily go down as the best of the trip, for the sheer sense of achievement. Three milestones added the list. We crossed the 1000 miles mark (which was the whole point of touring in the first place), we got all the way to Basel setting foot (or wheel) in Germany and… Read more »

Eurovelo 6 – Day 17 – Besançon to Montbéliard

Click Here for the Full Interactive Map After yesterday’s washout, the sun is shining when we wake. The shoes however still have memories of the day before, but not too uncomfortable. I seemed to be struggling for the word go, feeling ok but not as interested in breakfast as I should have been. Not really enough fuel for the day… Read more »

Eurovelo 6 – Day 16 – Verdun-sur-le-Doubs to Besançon

Click Here for the Full Interactive Map Ok, so it turns out that yesterday was not exactly the most unpleasant day. At least the sun was shining. After yesterday’s ‘maladie’ I felt much better this morning. Jones had spent the night taking issue with the decoration of the bathroom, but things appeared to have calmed down by the time we’d… Read more »

Eurovelo 6 – Day 15 – Santenay to Verdun-sur-le-Doubs

Click Here for the Full Interactive Map Yuk. Yuk. Thrice Yuk. Not a good day. Woke up this morning feeling a little nauseous, and wanted to blame the Grimbergen (again) had as a nightcap, but this was not a hangover. This was something brewing in the stomach that I hoped would go away. I struggled with a cup of coffee… Read more »

Click on the link beneath the map, then the link to ‘all pictures and videos’ beneath the map on the following page to find them. How to describe today? I’m not sure I have sufficient command of the English language to describe it. Raptures of pleasure perhaps? Let… Read more »

Eurovelo 6 – Day 12 – Nevers to Bourbon-Lancy

Click Here for the Full Interactive Map Less than enjoyable today, but can’t blame the weather, or the countryside. Self-inflicted pain unfortunately. Last night we went out to eat as usual, but being Saturday night we thought we’d allow ourselves an extra drink or two. We found a little Italian restaurant down a back street, or it could have been… Read more »
