Father and son Nigel and Jake Salmon are hard in training to cycle from Guernsey to Biarritz; all to raise funds for both MUG and the Pink Ladies

The challenge

A cycle ride from Guernsey to Biarritz (omitting the wet part between Guernsey and France). The plan is to complete the ride over a period of six days which will mean cycling up to 100 miles each day. They will be using a route that includes road, off road and voies vertes (gravel cycle paths).

Their plan is to kit their bikes out with cycle racks and panniers, carrying everything that they need, including spares, food and drink, and clothing. They have planned the route so that they are heading to a hotel each evening. In theory they are aiming to cycle between seven and ten hours each day although this will vary depending on weather, terrain and their ability to read the map!

They have created a Just Giving page www.justgiving.com/teams/2b2b2b

Good luck boyz !!
