French Revolutions

Edging ever closer to the 700 day point, I have just started to re-read Tim Moore’s book called French Revolutions. A month before the Tour de France in 2000 he decided to spend 6 weeks cycling the route of the tour. That year it was 3,630 kilometres – slightly shorter than the 3,800 kilometres of the Via Romea Francigena from London to Brindisi. But his involves alot of ups and downs and he didn’t have much time to prepare. He was also a bit younger – he was born in 1965 – at the time of his cycle adventure. He gives lots of points to ponder on… many of them involving stories of saddle sores and lubrication…
