I've dreamed about visiting Venice! I never imagined for one moment that my mode of transport to Venice would be a bicycle!

Crossing into Italy was a really exciting milestone for the trip! Italy offered some spectacular views and we need to go back! We've been told that the best parts are Northern Italy, the Alps and south - Pisa, Tuscany, Florence - Italy is on the list for another tour, another day.

When you ride a bike for 6+ hours a day you have a lot of time to think. Here are some of my thoughts about travelling and meeting people and why we should do more of it at home.
Why don’t we spend more time with our neighbours?

Lyon has delivered more than we expected, largely because we didn’t really have any expectations, but mostly because of the people we stayed with and the wonderful city that it is.

We have made it to Lyon! We did not make it here direct from Livry-Gargan, let me tell you - it's been a roller coaster of a journey! Read the highlights here!

Here’s how we got to Paris and saw the sights cheaply (143EUR) whilst having a lovely time in France’s capital!

It wouldn’t be right to say that I am surprised by the kindness of strangers because Stewart and I did not leave home expecting to find bad people we expected to find good people. Even so, with this in mind, I am still overwhelmed.

Our very first thoughts are that in France, they are much more accommodating of bikes! The cycle lanes are brilliant - and we love that each set of traffic lights has a smaller version at the bottom for cyclists & pedestrians. Unlike England it seems the right of way is for the pedestrians and cyclists opposed to the cars - and we really like this.

In April 2018, we met at work and bonded over our love of bikes and cycling! Within months we planned our first John O’Groats to Lands End together.

Luckily for us, Stewart is an experienced cyclist and has already completed a solo 2500 mile JOGLE. Zoe had been cycling for years, but only started taking cycling more seriously in 2017. Since we met cycling has been better and more adventurous than ever!

As of the 31st of March 2019 we are cycling 24,000 miles around the entire world.
