France 2009


An eleven day trip from St Malo to Nice in April 2009

The lads who went to Paris in 2008 then looked for a similar challenge for 2009 and we agreed upon St Malo to Nice.

The Group swelled to six with Gus Meyer who has completed all the Hospice Challenges to date and Paul Pierson from the UK. We also agreed to take a support vehicle which Chris Le Marquand kindly supplied (a great looking VW capable of taking seven bikes, seven blokes and all our supplies and provisions which it did, with ease).

A founder member of Big Vern’s Cycle Club, Jerseyman Richard Le Sueur has a formidable reputation in leading his Harley mates around Europe & was similarly successful in getting us to Paris. Richard, therefore, landed the job of organising the route for this trip & his plan is included below.

It was a great trip which took us coast to coast and onto Nice and a cycling distance of 777 miles with one day abandoned due to weather conditions.
