2000 miles to Athens on a bicycle

Jean-Pierre Adamson, one of our shelvers in 2008, is cycling from Britain to Greece where he will study at the British School at Athens. He is writing a blog of his adventures which you can follow at the link below.

We wish him best of luck, especially over the Alps and hope that there is a cold beer waiting for him in Athens!

You should find it much easier to come in now!
