09 Nov November 4 – Calais to Ypres
Day 2, Calais to Ypres was our first real taste of French country side and it didn’t let us down. Certainly a much easier ride today after a pretty punishing day 1. I think we are still all in awe of what we are taking on and why we are doing it. Stops along the way included Dunkirk and finished in Ypres with the laying of the wreath, the last post and reading of the ode at the night ceremony at Menin Gate. We were privileged to have 3 of our very own lay a wreath in remembrance of the 10’s of thousands who made the ultimate sacrifice and remain unto god. A very moving and emotional experience and one we will never forget.
