Blog 205 Bordeaux Merignac to Saint Medard de Guizieres

15th May

The journey has restarted from Bordeaux and I rode 40 miles from Bordeaux to a small town / village Saint Medard de Guizieres. I found a 'Logis' hotel for 65 euros and pizza place down the road and I'm in bed writing a short blog.


Tomorrow I ride 200 miles. I want to get home. It's time. 200 miles tommorow, 120 the next day then 200 miles again and the rest to get me into Amsterdam - job done. Adventure over. Around the world by e-cycle in the bag so to speak. Until I reach Amsterdam the journey has not accomplished it's aims to be the first ride around the world on an an electric bicycle.


So even though this blog is a bit scrappy - it's NOW, it's up to date so let's work together on making this happen. I will be online as often as possible to keep you informed about my 'sprint' across France, Belgium and The Netherlands. I can go back and revisit slowly but right now it's all about taking the bike to the ultimate limit, that after nearly 30,000 kms I am going to try and take the bike to the point where it might break - but it really is an engineering marvel to have withstood what I have put it through. Watch this space. Watch Instagram. Please do support me for the last 5 days and thanks. Nick

As with all your adventures/challenges Nick we all know it can be hard to have the energy left at the end of the day to put pen to paper & share what you have seen done. Please don't get complacent on the last few 100km. We Were hoping to catch up with you & Caroline for your last mach fest but we can't make it. I hope the mach goes well and is as memorable as the 1st one. All the best from the P family, Paul, Caroline Daniel & Louise.

You will reach your goal Nick,

I am convinced of that.

200 miles a day, I'd fall off my bike.

a crazy achievement

Have an accident-free ride and please don't get overconfident or careless in traffic on the last few miles

Best regards Harald
