In our seven days’ riding so far, we have notched up the following juicy little numbers :

Distance covered : 867 kms , 210 of those on one epic/ill-advised day from Saint-malo to Brussels

Vertical climb : 7562 metres. That means that although we’ve been going through what they told us were the low countries, by tomorrow we’ll have cycled up (and down) Everest.


Us looking smug.

Max Speed : 64.5 km/h (it sounds more impressive than 38 in old money)

Countries visited : 5 (yes, Luxembourg counts)

Showers taken : 1
