After having been contacted by one of the cyclists involved, I’ve had a link to these guys’ website on the front page of this website for sometime. They set off today! Their Twitter feed (@pompey2pompeii) describes their quest as follows; “…a gruelling 1500 mile bike ride, starting on September 10th from Portsmouth (Pompey), across Europe to the finish line in Pompeii for the AGSD charity“. Looking at their website I note that they have been let down by a hotel sponsor who was to have supplied them with a place to stay overnight as they pedaled south. I hope they have got alternatives sorted out. Their route takes them on a more westerly route than mine and it looks as though they have planned their trip in much more detail than I ever did! Good luck to them. I’ll be following their website and via Twitter of course.
