Normandy & Hauts-de-France
Riders: Paul Hunt, Peter Elsegood, Maciej Malyszka
It suppose to be an easy, kind of recovery trip until I crashed 2 days before our departure. Fractured scaphoid, herniated disk and some bruises made those few days a real physical challenge and the most essential part of my gear was 6 Ibuprofen and 8 Paracetamols daily. Riding wasn't so bad but mounting dismounting and any stops were very painful. The trip was fantastic as always but I could not do it without Paul and Pete help. Did not take any notes or remember many details so the picture have to tell the story. Anyway...
