Love the post. Remember, it is the journey that counts, not the destination. Especially on a bike!!

Have fun and stay safe.

Maybe a shorter trip is a better way to start your bike holidays. Seven children - WOW - like some of the others that really stopped me in my tracks! I will have to go do mine now - interesting info that you put in.
