Amélie-les-Bains 2016 and a record cycle ride.



 Base and Sue
 Me and the hire car


Amélie-les-Bains market



 Me and Sue and the issued helmets!

And the reason we went was to  watch our eldest son ride his bike. Nothing unusual about that, well may be.... as he rode 1500Km in 60 hours going from the most northerly village of France to the southern most village of France. I should say Chris seeing us at Amalie was a surprise as we did not tell Chris we would be along to watch (a secret keep by everyone involved :-)

Me with Chantal and Chris

1499.9Km done 1M to do
Sue,Chris and me 00:10hrs at the finish

                                                                The bike and sponsors

A great ride needs a great support team 
And many more
                                                         Chocolate sculpture for Chris
Saturday evening celebration party

                               The road to Amélie-les-Bains will take us back some time soon.
And finally the early days
The last time I could ride faster than Chris
