Wow. What an unbelievably epic ride. Beyond all expectations. The route cannot be recommended enough. Riding to raise money for south London youth charity www.regenerateuk.co.uk we raised over £40 000 and to top that we were blessed all the way with some of best cycling one could hope for. From beautiful cycles paths the length of France to three mountain ranges, ancient cities, deserts and epic downhills in Spain to a day trip to Morocco. It was a three week adventure that goes beyond words. The pics and videos tell more of the story. Thanks to official photographer Nahwand Jaff for some excellent photos.
