Keeping you up to date with the progress of MPA’s Creative Director, Nick Hunt, as he tackles a London to Paris fundraising cycle ride over three days…
4 September 2015
Eleven hours in the saddle yesterday and after a late night, caused by waiting to board the ferry, Nick was up at 5.30am in order to get some breakfast on the boat before docking at 7am. He says he’s doing okay, but less aches and pains would be good!
We do hope tiredness doesn’t make him forget to cycle on the left!
Leaving Caen on a greenway, at least there was no traffic to deal with straight away. They cycle on towards Rouen, before heading on to quieter roads in the direction of Evreux. The landscape is rolling hills and quaint French villages typical of the region. A lunch stop in Thiveville, just north of Liseaux, very welcome.
Nick’s pleased to discover that he’s definitely not the slowest cyclist, but is sticking quite close to the back of the pelaton. Better for the ego to move forward through it, than to drop back!
Following lunch they pressed on towards Evreux, and he’s completed day two. Nick arrived at 4pm, only a 9 hour day in the saddle today!
Tonight’s about a good dinner and a proper bed – luxury after the ferry bunks. But will it be an early night for Nick or will he prefer a quiet stroll through the town and a nightcap at one of the many bars and cafes – hmm!
Final day tomorrow – Paris here he comes!
