I have, take a look here. I documented my perpetration and tips for the benefit of others.

I have also started logging my research on my montello and a recent trip from nice to Geneva.

Good luck Ed. Look forward to the write up. If your previous adventures are anything to go by, it will be a cracker! :wink:

We are only a few miles from Groats so you can sort your return from here if you like.

6 days. That is impressive. When I did it the weather was awful and we took 9 days. It was a tough tour.

Indeed, especially given the build up he had. Knocked off while commuting or training, damaging his knee. And knackering his bike. Then builing back up to it slowly by doing turbo riding to raise money for charity.

Good bloke ! :wink:
