St. Malo to Lyon by Bicycle

Date

27th June to 31st July 

Location

France (all of it!)

More Info

Katie Grant and Aaron Dent cycled all the way from St. Malo to Lyon, but instead of going direct they decided to take in the sights of Perpignan and Monaco, which are not exactly on the way... They collected sponsorship and took bets on how long it was going to take them to complete this mammoth task, raising over £800 for the Trust as they did so.  Their final time in the saddle was 130hours and 25 minutes, covering an astonishing 2,352km. Katie has written a brilliant account of the journey which you can {modal url=index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=17} read here. {/modal}
