    A good friend of mine is cycling from Dumfries to Morroco then back to Majorca all for charity. Here is link to his blog which gives his route through the UK, France and Spain http://www.chasingthesun.org.uk/ so if you see him either give him a toot or if at a campsite go and say hi.

    Paul is a really nice guy and I'm sure would appreciate a few friendly toots and chats on his journey.

    I'm sure with the amount of funsters in France this summer someone is bound to see him, just tell him Gerry says Hi.

    Paul is now on the ferry from Portsmouth to France so keep an eye out for him guys, he's doing a great thing and a wee wave will keep his spirits up.

    Thanks

    Gerry

    What charity is it for and does he have a donations page? I like to give a little when people make a huge effort like this.:Smile:

    I hope you don't think I am trying to drum up money for him :Rofl1: just said I'd post on here in the hope he'd meet some nice people on the way.


    If you really do want to sponsor him go to the link above and click on 2014 and then his plan, he is doing it for a cancer charity.

    That is one seriously long cycle ride. Heck, it would wear me out doing it in the motorhome.

    Wish him good luck on the ride from me! What an inspiration.

    He is certainly cracking on - had left the UK before I read the first post!

    I know a few of you are following Paul's progress so here's a wee up date on where he is now.

    Another update from Paul's cycle trip, he actually met some British motorhomers today for the first time. He didn't mention if they where funsters though :Rofl1:

    He will be close to Toulouse tomorrow so if your reading this Frankie have a look out for him.
