Early in 2012
Lou & Paul began to delve
To friends who like a challenge
A cycle ride from London to Paris
Was scheduled for September 14th
Training got going in early March
A heavy night before you were left rather parched!
A Wednesday night we trained 20 miles
Back to the pub with plenty of smiles
Road bikes & Lycra were purchased in mass
The task ahead we'll have a sore
Crystal place was our starting point
Eager to start forget the joints
The charity Child Bereavement is such a worthy cause
Fran unfortunately wrapped her knee in gauze
After 60 miles we reached Newhaven, some of the girls wished they had shaven.
When we reached the ferry it was heavy going
All were tired it sure was showing
We got to bed at half past four
B4 u knew it, it was time to do more!
2nd day, a 50 mile cruise
My god we felt the bruise....
We ate more food & time for sleep
Bloody fire alarm what a beep
Early start before the dawn
So cold we longed to be warm
We pedalled on throughout the day
Our destination was just past
One mile to go
2 by 2
We past Eiffel tower what a view
Into the last straight with all a sore Haris
We had finally made it from London to Paris
