And its goodbye to Italy and back to France today, they are weaving backwards and forwards across the border over these couple of days. It was 6 hours on the trail today. Unfortunately a few sections were closed due to maintenance works / only accessible for mountain bikes so Redmnd could not do everything he wanted to do today!...

So its Au revoir France and Ciao Italia. Over 6 hours of trail today with some more to come. A few more surfaced roads today although the breathtaking views made up for it. High enough today to come across ice and snow in places. Redmond found that the Italian off-road sections were in much better condition than the French. Part of the route w...

First day offroad in the mountains for Redmond and Becky. A 7:30am start and around 6.5 hours drive saw them descend into Chamonix for lunch and an afternoon relaxing. Jimny is running well although there are signs of some grease around one of the new rear wheel bearing and the mountain roads have uncovered some rattles and squeaks. Also the front ...

40215528_296320407622622_2358202903979622400_n_1
Day 2 saw Becky and Redmond starting early (4am) to get the Eurotunnel to France. The plan was to do all of the long distance road trip in one day in order to get straight to the mountains.  Jimny chocked into place, they have clearly heard about Jimny handbrakes! ​Then it was the long slog to the mountains. The sat-nav gave a hopeful 8 hours ...
