We're cycling around Europe, or more precisely France, Switzerland, Italy, France and Spain.
We can't really be bothered to write about what we're doing, but everyone has nagged us to do so, so here it is. We will post occassionally. No promises it will be interesting, but we'll try.

Day 12 somewhere in the mountains to Rimini
We will get to the coast no matter what. And we did. 114 miles, 8 hours of riding to the shit hole that is Rimini. We planned to stay in Riccione but couldn't quite manage the extra 5 miles down the coast. The campsite was fine - it had pizza and wine - but it was next to another busy main road and populated with parrots and yapping dogs. Richard described it as paying to be a refugee, which is a fairly accurate description. But tomorrow will we be in Francavilla with a bed, pool and a gallon of wine.
