Amanda is our resident pedaller, who loves the climbs as much as the descents. No genre of biking is turned down, though she is happiest when at the top of a mountain with a wild descent ahead of her. If you ever want a chat about concussion recovery, dealing with a Womb of Doom or how best to fuel an endurance XC race, she's the one to email.

    I’ve loved reading about your trip. Sounds fantastic, thank you for taking the time to write about it. It might inspire me to try something similar in a couple of years.

    Really inspired by this. I did trips like this pre kids. We didn’t go as far each day but you know what I mean. I really need to get back to it. I have a modest plan for a first overseas trip next summer. I thought mrs Ampthill had hung up her padded shorts for good. But no she’s coming with me 🙂

    Thanks everyone, I guess now is a good time to mention that I’m working on the next diary, from a far more challenging ride across the Alps this summer 🙂 Preview coming in issue 153 of the mag, too!

    Chapeau Amanda!

    I’m working on the next diary, from a far more challenging ride across the Alps this summer.

    Can’t wait for this – the Spanish diary has had me dreaming of a trip, so hopefully the next one will kick me into actually doing it.

    I’ve really enjoyed this series. You say the next one is far more challenging? Crikey.
