Fort Bragg, CA

OK Chaps & Lady Chaps, we’re going to keep this one brief, as you all know we are here in Fort Bragg having a non-cycling day. So, as usual, our so-called “Rest Day” was actually full of the usual suspects: laundry; bike maintenance; late brunch; booking hotels; planning routes; checking weather forecasts; shopping at CVS et cetera et cetera; you get the drill.

However there was one event that added a certain ‘quelque chose’ to today’s mix. After a recommendation from Susan (the owner of The Restaurant) we met up with Debbie, a journalist from the local paper, to give an interview about our Epic Journey (don’t worry mum and dad we wore clean underpants, crisply pressed shirts and a 2-piece suit) and posed for a few happy snaps …all for a good cause we hope.

Ah …and one more thing, we’re going to stay an extra day tomorrow and try to have a proper rest day. Susan and Jim have kindly offered us a place to stay, which works really well for us, as tomorrow is a bringer of heavy rains and strong winds! We’re going to execute a double-play on Thursday, cramming two days of cycling into one.

  1. Hi you two, wish I could have spent more time with you but we were on deadline and it was a crazy day! Susan and Jim are dear and special friends and am so glad that you were able to spend some more time with them at their place. I plan on keeping up with you and keeping in touch and sharing your blog and information re MS to my friends, etc., online. I was diagnosed with MS in 1989. Each day is like having a mini-mountain to climb. It's been a difficult journey, although I'd like to think it has made me a better person.

    Best of luck to you, will look forward to checking in. Thank you for what you are doing to help those who battle with MS.
