So, for all those interested 😉 We plan to cycle from our home in Epsom to the south of France with our 8 month daughter Dianna. Crazy would you say? I think not. No one is surprised by our idea, but everyone is shocked to find out that we are actually going to cycle all the way. When we say that we are going to cycle to France, most imagine us taking our car and bicycles, or flying to France with bicycles, but no one can imagine a family of three to actually cycle from the UK to France.
Strange is it may seem, people are totally fine with driving to the south of France with their kids and having them spend 14-16 hours in a child seat of a car and are amazed and sometimes quite critical of those who are about to put their children into a bicycle trailer for 3-4 hours a day.
For those with similar ideas, we will be publishing a detailed record of our preparations, gear lists, travel diaries, etc. There are a few families that publish similar blogs, however, the information on cycling with babies this young is scarce. We are starting our trip on around the 25th of June, 2012 (weather permitting). In the next week we are going to write on what we are doing to prepare ourselves and Dianna for the long ride.
