Gibraltar to London Day 1: Gibraltar to Almargen

This blog post is the first of many documenting my 1200-mile bikepacking trip from Gibraltar to London in August 2017.

Distance: 75 miles

1200 Miles from Gibraltar to London by Bike

It has been ten months since I walked from Mexico to Canada.

Since then I’ve had a few small trips, but with the combination of winter laziness, absence of money and work-based fatigue it’s all gone a bit downhill. The start of 2018 has featured a real absence of adventure, and I’m going through the usual withdrawal symptoms.

Time to do something about it. Read more
