When it came to leaving Evesham we were ready and rearing to go. We said goodbye to Caroline, our AirbnB host. She was lovely!! Caroline gave us full access to the house, allowing us to cook a meal. We retreated upstairs pretty early to rest the night before, but we loved the conversation over breakfast. Caroline used to teach English as a foreign language, which I know that is difficult from my University Studies. She had children and one of her daughters liked to do triathlon. Caroline slapped us on the wrists for putting jam on our toast and told us (jokingly) that marmalade is strictly for breakfast and jam for afternoon tea! I guess we should’ve known that being British, but I’m afraid that traditional english custom is one that we weren’t aware of. It seemed that Caroline appreciated our journey and living life to the absolute full.

The ride itself was hilly with 3000ft of elevation. It took 9 hours again -eek! Thankfully the last 20 miles or so were totally flat – and we know that road well now. Stew’s granny had a hot steak pie ready for us – and up to her usual standard, the pie was amazing!! I had cheekily requested we got to have Margaret’s steak pie one final time before we left for 2 years!

The weather to Chinnor was just perfect. It was a Monday – and honestly I was not missing the office and usual influx of Monday morning emails. This was bliss. The pictures barely do the day justice!

    Not going to the office, on a Monday, is always a bonus!

We're Zoe & Stewart and we've been cycling around the world since March 2019.

This blog was born in 2017 when Stew cycled a 2,500 mile, solo John O' Groats to Land's End (JOGLE) along the west coast of the UK.

At the time Stew was planning a world cycling tour for his 30th birthday, but his plans changed when he met me and invited me along on this trip of a lifetime. I took no hesitation in saying "YES I'd love to come". We quickly threw ourselves into a 1,022 mile bike tour of the UK to make sure I enjoyed it - needless to say - I love it!

We've since cycled over 20 countries together and I love to share our adventures on this blog.

You can also download our tried and tested routes, and soon we're bringing you gear reviews, guides, bike equipment lists, reviews and more.

I hope you enjoy the blog!
