DAY 3 done, well sort of. .
.
50 miles short of the planned daily mileage but I had nothing left to give. The heat and the headwinds I've been battling all day took their toll. I managed to reach the outskirts of Paris and found a hotel to crash in - I am drained. Time to recover, refuel and stretch so I can get back out there tomorrow. .
.
Picture 2 is a very visual representation of my day - big and windy 😂.

DAY 2 of my 5 Cities Challenge in aid of @makeawishuk - the sun is up and I've managed about 40 miles this morning. Stopped at a bakery for some fuel 😊
.
.
Amiens, Beauvais and then Paris after that is just seeing how many miles I can do. .

Got to keep smiling 😀

Bonjour from France 🇳🇱
.
.
Day 1 of my 5 Cities Challenge in aid of @makeawishuk done. The mileage is way short of what was required but it has just been one of those days unfortunately. Punctures a plenty and in the end I had to be rescued 10 miles shy of Dover. .
.
So nearly 4 hours lost but hey ho...I roll on. Stopped at 8.45 in the end- it's dark and I'm tired. Got a hotel tonight as I didn't need any more dramas. Recover and go again tomorrow. .

Last #bikepacking #Lofoten photo - I've written up a (rather long) overview of my route and experiences on the off chance it's helpful for anyone thinking of doing similar or looking for inspiration on what to see and where to go. Link in bio

Day 15: Arrived in NYC! 🚴‍♀️.
.
Our day started with a short stint riding with our warm showers host. We tried to follow a cycle path along an aquaduct, but after climbing a steep hill and riding a grassy trail for a while, we hit a wall of dirt that was impassable on our loaded up bikes. "Well now that you've wasted 10 minutes, lets get you back on the road!"- our host didnt ride with us much longer after that- oops!
.
We followed the road for a while, covering 700ft of elevation in a little over 6 miles was hard but we soon joined a cycle path that would take us all the way to the city. The jungle before the concrete jungle. Although the path ran alongside the freeway, thick forest ran on either side and almost made us feel like we were in wilderness if it wasn't for the car noise. We followed this path for 25 miles until the tarmac suddenly ran out and we were riding packed dirt and mud through the woods for a while- totally unexpected at the end of a ride into the city!.
.
However, the path ended in a park and we were abruptly spat out back to reality in the Bronx. 10 miles of stressful city cycling followed. The last few miles followed one of NYCs long straight avenues all the way to central park, where the ride was dragged out by traffic lights every block. It was almost an anticlimax when we finally made it to central park. Our @warmshowers_org host found us up on a hill in the park in a hammock between 2 trees, eating ramen we'd cooked up in the park, not long before a park ranger kicked us out the hammock. Harlen is a great host and led us back to his Cornell student apartment on the Upper East Side, which is our home for the next few days after some very last minute pleading on warm showers yesterday!

No more goals for the season - one last (micro)tour and then it's winter. Hard to find motivation to train, but quite enjoying just rolling around, ignoring the numbers and taking in the scenery. Too many events to choose from next year... And potentially something very big and very different...

Day 14: Almost There 🚴‍♀️.
.
An extended stay at the winery and a tad too much wine the night before meant a late start to the day. We decided cycling the remaining 80 miles to NYC in one go was a bad idea and found a @warmshowers_org host just 38 miles away down the river in Croton-on-Hudson.
.
Not too long after leaving the winery, we got hungry again and stopped at a cool vegan restaurant in Beacon @vegetalienbeacon for some tasty lunch. Beacon is a seriously cool town with the feel of an alpine village thanks to the dramatic Hudson hills filling the landscape. .
All day, the road weaved its way through the Hudson valley with impressive forest covered hills to our left, the river to our right and more awesome hills just over the river. It felt more like riding on a Pacific island than following the Hudson. We climbed lovely rolling hills all day and even crossed the Appalachian trail as we descended the biggest climb of the day. The worst part of the day was a short stint on a busy dual carriageway bridge. However, leaving the busy road took us to a cool lakeside park, where once again we felt like we were on a Pacific island admiring the awesome hills emerging from the Hudson. .
A few more hills later and we arrived at the home our interesting host for the evening, with no idea where we were going to stay once we got to NYC... .

Flat lay number 2 and this will be my wild camping set up, all sorted on the front, handlebar bag. It's all in my new blog #linkinbio .
.
Hunks XL bivy in which I will sleep on the Numo sleeping mat, inside the Mountain Ghost sleeping bag. If the weather turns or it's windy I'll use the single person tarp, either rigged to trees or using the bike and wheels. All of this kit is from @alpkit which came highly recommended - quality kit and importantly lightweight. Looking forward to giving it all a proper test on my 1,000 mile solo challenge through Europe. .
.
I'm also a big fan of the @restrap bags - the newest additional for this challenge being the handlebar bag, which comes with a 14ltr dry bag. It's turned out to be the perfect size to hold all my camping / sleeping kit, so will be within easy reach when I need it. .
.
This challenge is in aid of @makeawishuk - 1,000 miles in 5 days, travelling between 5 Cities, solo and unsupported. To donate please visit www.justgiving.com/milesforwishes or simply text MFOR82 £2, £5, £10 or £20 to 70070

First of two flat lays ahead of my 5 Cities Challenge in aid of @makeawishuk .
.
This is the kit I'll be wearing out on the bike for the duration of the challenge. Always two pairs of socks, no question!! Other than that it's pretty standard - bib shorts, custom jersey courtesy of the amazing Neil at @mybikeandi and arm and leg warmers for the early mornings and evenings. .
.
I don't trust anything on my butt but @assosofswitzerland and likewise I don't do the long challenges without looking after my gut thanks to @active_root .
