Yesterday we welcomed Patrick and Alan to the peloton, which reduced the average age considerably.

We had planned for an early start this morning however despite the notice that breakfast was available at 7 this proved to be incorrect. We spent time waiting for breakfas...

There were some tired legs starting this stage , the previous two days had taken a bit of a toll on the peloton , however as has been proven time and time again on this journey, team spirit and good humor were always going to help us through.

We left Puente Genil and tr...

The day started late. Having negotiated an early breakfast with the hotel we were somewhat surprised to find that the power to the lift was turned off actually preventing us getting to the dining room - no wonder he agreed so readily!

After fond farewells with the hotel...

I’m sure I speak for all the drivers (a.k.a. butlers/valets) when I say driving the support van for the E2E ride has been a privilege and a lot of fun. Although I've taken my turn at riding too, I picked an easier week to tackle by bike than the week I drove the van, (...

We (well, Jerry mostly) made this video as we travelled through the UK, France and Spain. We did it as a reprise of our "Road to Amarillo" effort a couple of years ago in our home village of Easton on the Hill. It was previewed last night at the Easton on the Hill Gala...

Today was all change for both the Peloton and the Van crew. The first riding day for Karl Louise Pip and Billy ( who had seemlessly converted from van driver to rider overnight) . Also the first driving day for John and Vaughan - which seemed strange since they had bee...

Very impressed with Les Dos Paul's who found a livery spot outside the main door of the hotel ,bike stand all set up , and then Paul R. decided t...

We all woke up this morning after a very disturbed night , two clocks chiming with large bells every hour ( one about five minutes before the other  for maximum disturbance) and then at 3 o clock Ian's car alarm decided to go off every 20 mins , and it was a while befo...

I wrote yesterday's blog from our hotel not having explored the town , in the evening we went for a wander around what looked  like a pretty uninteresting place , so imagine our surprise when we entered the main square to be confronted with the view below . Apparently...

Today was forecast to be hot @32 degrees , we were going to be traveling south west from Alcazar to Almagro.  So the news that the wind was a moderate Easterly  was well received. We decided to make an early start due to hire heat and the fact we had two new riders on...
