Unfortunately for Julia and the team of cyclists it’s not just England who are suffering from rain! It wasn’t quite the start they had all hoped for as they began the first 20 miles of their cycle ride through France in the rain, before arriving in Beaune at 8.40 pm. It wasn’t all bad though, as their route took them through many vineyards and pretty wine growing villages.
Needless to say their early start at 8.00 am this morning to embark on the next 60 miles presented a little bit of a challenge after having sampled the wine that Beaune had to offer! Julia has been joined on the cycle ride by many other children panel solicitors and Guardian’s, and so far her shoulder is holding up. So we will all keep our fingers crossed, and we will update you again on their progress when we know more!
