We were on the radio yesterday - check out http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/console/p008hrvq then skip 56.30 minutes into the show!

We're also in the Daily Echo - check out http://www.dailyecho.co.uk/news/8246148./

But we still have soooo many stories to tell and will get back into doing weekly updates soon.

Really looking foreward to telling you all about the Israel and what happened when we wildcamped 20km from the Gaza strip, our ride on a cargo ship accross to to Italy.. and how we kept fit for the 7 days spent on ship, all about the wonderous feeling of spring in Europe - the Italian icecream and vino and then crossing the alps and traversing france!

Watch this space!!

Cycle the world with Cycle World

Thanks for some cheap kit

sunny 20 °C

Just a little note to say thanks to Joe - the new floor manager at Cycle world - Romsey. He was dead interested in the trip and persuaded the big boss - Nigel to give us 20% off some accessories! If you live near romsey go in and buy a bike.. they are very nice people!

We're Famous (sort of!)

sunny 19 °C

After a very hectic 2 weeks in the UK catching up with people and doing trip preparation we are rewarded with 2 super cool bikes from the best bike shop in Cardiff (and probably the world), and some cheap kit from Cycle world in Romsey.

We have also featured in the very prestigious South Wales Echo and Romsey Advertiser.
