Story

A challenge!! Always keen to try something different, well St Malo - St Tropez sounds idyllic. Then say circa 7 days, 700 miles and on a push bike it starts to become slightly more daunting. Then add a few mountains, namely the Massif Central, and it starts to look slightly scary!On 16th June four cyclists, in very loose terms, and a commited support crew, read individual, will set off looking to raise money for Air Ambulance.

Training completed, albeit not quite as much as should have been done, our journey will commence at St Malo on 17th, and end 7 days later in St Tropez. In memory of Henry Sale, late Managing Partner of Fisher German, the cause adds perspective to the challenge and will make the climbs hopefully seem less sgnificant. Any support would be massively appreciated.

Challenge completed. Circa 750 miles in 7 days, bikes in one piece and more importantly bodies in one piece. Thank you to all those that have supported our adventure, and to everybody that has kindly donated.

So here we are Day Four already & Day Three was an absolute monster! Hail, thunder, lightening & driving rain for much of the day with several changes of clothes & a strong sense of humour required. Never was a shower, meal & bed quite so welcome, thank you all for your support

A week today we will be ferrying toward our start point. Which way will the wind be blowing and what will happen during our week long adventure.

Another weekend closer and the prospect of 700 miles in 7 days looks even less inviting. The importance of which way the wind blows is of even more significance following cycling into 20 mph winds yesterday!!
