Bon voyage

Been avoiding commenting in this board, but now feels like an appropriate time to wish those of you bold enough to ride across France a Bon Voyage and the best of times. 

May the audax gods bless you with tailwinds in both directions and the memories you collect be varied and interesting!

That's much appreciated HB - just done my final packing - yikes.  Bristol tomorrow, France the day after and then... gulp.
Look out here I come!

Very best wishes Dave and all others---having been thro` the grinder myself on the qualifiers , but not riding PBP now, I very much hope that 1. you enjoy a great ride / have good memories and 2. all the grimness of the qualifiers in a difficult British winter gives you bon courage when it`s possibly needed

Safe riding and journeys to all  ;D

No, Sylvie and I will not be riding PBP this time, for many different reasons, but we wish you really have a great ride full of sunshine!
