We put our bike shoes on today for a short and fast (20 miles) warm-up ride from Dover to Canterbury. Tomorrow and the next day we have back-to-back 100-mile rides through France. We are going to France to begin the final leg of 10 Degrees Latitude. The remaining portion is a bike from Calais to Paris. Once we finish this we will have traversed 10 Degrees of Latitude under human power.
[UPDATE] We took the ferry to France. It took around 2 hours. During the whole trip I just gazed out the window. I could not believe how wide and rough the channel looked. It still doesn’t seem real to either of us that we swam that huge distance just two days ago.
A shout-out to Best Western Hotel Du Parc and Celine Delaplace who did so much to make us feel at home. This hotel has gorgeous grounds, a sunny outdoor pool, and a top-notch restaurant. We recommend the ostrich, it’s delic.
