Day 2 Update

After 3 days of traveling along the English coast, across the Channel through France, Switzerland and Italy, we made it to Rome with a well deserved 2 days of R&R including sightseeing on one of the hottest days recorded.

With the heat wave still in full swing the guys set off in good time on Day 1 in a bid to avoid the heat and made good progress. They sensibly made plenty of water and shade stops and completed the 124.8miles with 4,525ft climbing. First stop now en route Grosseto.

A very well deserved pizza for tea and the boys have set off again this morning just before sunrise for a ‘short’ day of 75 miles.

Keep the support coming, they love your comment and word of encouragement.

We’ll keep you posted . . .

Ready and waiting
