Horsington resident and intrepid cyclist Chris Bailward has embarked on another epic cycle ride – this time to cycle from daughter Kate’s house on the slopes of Mount Etna, Italy, all the way home to Horsington. He set off at 8am on Wednesday morning and is now on top of a hill in Calabria.
He has been training by doing punishing 80 mile rides around Somerset and Dorset, and on the slopes of Mount Etna.
This is his fourth cycling adventure. Previous expeditions include Lands End to John o’Groats, the Bailward Tour de France and an 1800 mile trek around the County Towns of England.
You can follow Chris’s adventures on his very entertaining Blog, and the Horsington Blog will also follow him and publish highlights from time to time.
Good luck Chris.
