Over the years I have cycled a small number of long distance tours - nothing compared with some cyclist’s achievements, nothing to write home about, but the bug was there to do something much longer when I retired.  Various options came to mind, but gradually the idea of cycling the length of France and Spain began to take hold. The logistics of getting to the start or back from the finish became an extended discussion around the breakfast table and Liz made a suggestion that we ought to have a holiday driving down to Gibraltar and I could then cycle back while she drove back with another passenger for company. And so it worked out.
