Before going to chase Easter eggs and filling my belly with chocolates, I did my daily ride today with a total of 144km. 105 of it was done joining a high pace group ride « SAS 200 » which enabled me to ride at an average speed of 44km/h thanks to the drafting effect, this was still demanding though 🥵
I’ve completed a total of 433km since the beginning of the journey 4 days ago, this represent 24% of the whole journey!
All these kilometers enabled me to pass the 20% milestone of the challenge, meaning that a first tree will be planted by Eden Reforestation Projects, the partner chosen by The Conqueror Events (the platform I’m using to follow my progression on the virtual challenge).
Back to my virtual journey, today I passed by Man O War Bay, here is a bit of history about it :
For fans of Jurassic coastlines, the open chalk coves of this part of Dorset are a draw for lovers of beautiful British beaches and amateur and professional geologists alike. Durdle Door itself even has some unlikely cousins; when the African and European tectonic plates collided some 25 million years ago, the same event created the Alps as well as this strange limestone structure.
Part of the Lulworth Estate, the arch itself is actually privately-owned, but the shingle beach is open to the public via a footpath over the hill from Lulworth Cove. The locals will also refer to the area as Man O War Bay, although you won’t find this on the Ordnance Survey Map – the official name is St. Oswald’s Bay – the area is particularly popular with snorkelers and swimmers.
And just below is the postcard I was able to send to you from there guys 😉
