Just a quick blog for now, more detail later this weekend.
WE MADE IT!
After about 520 miles of cycling over 5 days, we made it back to Vilnius to a hero's welcome at the Barclays office, Green Hall, Upes Gatve.
We covered a mere 85'ish miles today from Kaunas to Vilnius mostly on the A5 road. This is the hilliest portion of the trip passing through some of Lithuania's beautiful national parks, forests and lakes with a few nice challanging hills.
We stopped off at Trakai for our "traditional" Kibinai and soup in a bread bowl (nothing like eating your bowl whilst you eat your soup, before blazing the final trail into Vilnius and Green Hall.
I will put full route details up shortly, but thanks to all who have supported us and my personal thanks to my fellow riders:
Accident Al Quinlan
Nick "Smiler" Miles
Denis "Sonic" Ignatjev
Vitas "Stretch Armstrong" Tamkevicius
Out support team number too many to remember, but the two guys who saw us through to the end and must be mentioned are our support bus drivers
Many thanks again, without a true team effort this would not have been possible.
Hope all the knees recover eventually :-)
