Road to Frame - The Adventure Blog

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.

Today could’ve been the best day possible, but we were faced with some adversity. First of all Stew’s rear light stopped working and secondly I fell over … TWICE! A bit of a bloody knee, and nice bruise on the left leg, but nothing our AMAZING AirBnB host Hilary couldn’t solve!

we started to question our 65mile a day plan, we’ve decided that it is a little ambitious this early on in the trip. Whilst is is do-able and we are happy doing it, we’re our for 9 hours a day just to do 65 miles.

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!

Our 24,000 bike ride was sparking interest in charity, so we decided to cycle the world in loving memory of my best friend, Leanne Brownhill who we sadly lost in 2013, aged 26.

Here is our approximate itinerary, it is inevitable that this will change over time but should be a good rough guide to where we will be through the year.

International cycling likely means you're going to need to think about vaccinations. Vaccinations sometimes need multiple doses within a time window, so good planning is essential. Some vaccinations you can get on the NHS, and others you will need to pay for. Read our experiences/thoughts on vaccinations.

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.
