Some time ago I posted suggesting the need to resolve the question: why do we cycle? This in anticipation of our five week tour of Spain. We decided we were into slow travel that would leave us open to new experiences. But a second question was: could we deal with the uncertainties of an unscripted trip?
Events have taken a different turn. At 9.00pm last night a text arrived from Brittany Ferries. All crossings are cancelled due to industrial action by French workers. What should we do? We decided we would detour to Paris via Eurostar. So now. We are faced with a 2500km ride to Algoz rather than the planned 1000km from Santander.
So the worry is no longer can we deal with unplanned days, but instead can we make it to Algoz in five weeks including a ride through France in October?
It looks like the fates have decided we are to have an adventure!
