Rain and strong winds on the French coast made Calais and the Tunnel the best option for a Chanel Crossing.
Running north past the magnificent cathedrals
Im particular the Notre Dame in Amiens
To the Eurotunnel train and rendezvous with other riders returning from their summer winter tour
Back in London it wasn’t just the weather that was changing
So was the political climate and the response to climate change
Even the lawyers rebelled for the climate
I have avoided politically related statements in my blog but as I write large tracks of beautiful rare temperate rain forests in New South Wales, Australia are being destroyed in unprecedented bush fires. This is climate change and it can no longer be ignored.
