Journey Continues ….

…yes, the journey down was exhilarting, the best ever, the cyclists said… there was a smell of rubber in the air.  A wheel problem and change of bike for Andy L, followed by a fast and busy journey to meet at our destination on the ouskirts of  Turin.  Nonie and  I were parked up, vergeside by a roundabout.  What joy it was to see our yellow jersey cyclists beating down a cycle to path towards us, yes all there, all 28 of them.  It was then a mere 15 mins or so (much longer by van) to reach The Lingotto building where we descended with exuberance and fulfillment to celebrate with Pip’s favourite Elderflower Champagne from Polgoon, thankful to be there and with dear Gill and Tim to welcome us - it was a moment to cherish.  Journey not over yet… and more of Gav’s video to come.
