Day 9: Dieppe to Chesham

Saturday April 14, 2007, 162 km (100 miles) – Total so far: 1,029 km (639 miles)

1,029 km in total, not bad for one week of touring. We decided yesterday not to have our planned rest day in Brighton in favour of a longer ride home and a day of rest before we both return to work on Monday. We did drop in on Brighton though, but not intentionally, we took a wrong turn out of Newhaven’s ferry terminal and ended up on the west bound coast road.
It was an early start, the alarm went off at 5:30am to catch the 8am boat to England. After an uneventful four hour crossing, we had another long day on the bikes before we finally got back to Chesham after dark.

Between the two of us we only suffered one puncture during the whole tour and it happened immediately after our early evening beer break in the Perseverance public house in Wraysbury.
