Hello! Lizzie here (the twin sister!). I’ll be keeping you updated on Jen’s journey through texts that she sends me! I spoke to her last night and she was both nervous and excited!

Wednesday 18th August

7:00am – CycleJen sets off on her mammoth journey!

11:40am – “half way to Dover – Jesus Christ it’s hilly!”

2:30pm – “ah Kent! Beautiful, flat Kent!”

4:50pm – “My next challenge will be to become mayor of Kent and get the south downs bulldozed flat. No one needs hills like that. It’s obscene.”

7:00pm – “94 miles. 7.5 hours. Flys swallowed 10. Death hills climbed 4. Day 1 is complete!”

9:44pm – “sleeeep”

Thursday 19 August

6:00pm – “Oh god. I’ve accidently stolen someone’s bum cream!”

Friday 20 August

12:57pm – “Toughest day so far! 18 miles of open landscape and a really strong head wind. Argh!”

7:33pm – “Well, I made it! 30 degree heat and Jen do not mix. Roll on tomorrow!”

Saturday 21 August

9:56 am – “It’s an interesting experience feeling too tired to move your body, but getting on and doing it anyway. Still, 25 miles to Paris!”

11:21am – “Stopped to have lunch by the Seine! Already feeling emotional, so i’ll be bawling by the time we reach the Eiffel Tower!”

3:05pm – “London to Paris. 300 mils. 0 punctures. 0 rides in the van. 3 lots of tears. Finished!”

Wooooot go jen go! I hope at the end it is like a scene from E.T…. E.T. go home, as if your bike could miraculously float you back to the Scotland! Nice thought though!

It’s late and I’m working… I hope that says burn and not bum cream… marginal improvement in my mind tanks thoughts 🙂

I agree for very different reasons! What a day I have had… I think the prednisone is making me a smidge ’emotional’ 🙂

I hope the wind was not strong enough to bring tears to your eyes! Let us know what Paris is like when you get there… I’m flying over in a few weeks time… *that was quite evil* 🙂

Keep pedalling you marvel!

PS – why on Earth did you pinch someone’s butt cream? Don’t you know where that’s been?!?!?!?!
