My first tour and the reason the web site was set up in the first place. The site's original purpose was to help raise sponsorship for an unassisted charity cycle ride originally called the 'Anglo-Swiss Charity Bike Ride', after the nationalities of the two participants.
Once the tour was over the site languished unused for many months until I finally got round to chronicling some of the adventure for the benefit of anyone who might find our experiences useful.
The route maps and profiles originally posted on this site were updated in October 2006 (more than 3 years after the event) to use the more useful Google Maps data employed on the rest of the site.
However, whilst all the other maps and profiles on this site are taken from my GPS, these were plotted in TrackLogs using my original maps, notes and best recollection to plot the route. The new maps are a considerable improvement on the originals, but they are not 100% accurate.
