Mr Weenie has become jealous of my love for my bicycle and wants to come cycling with me in France. He's confident but hasn't cycled in some years (he used to cycle EVERYWHERE). He's planning on using my old bike locally before go in July but the initial ride to our destination would be 70 miles from the ferry port. We'll have my parents in a car (with a bike rack) a phonecall away if we come unstuck but he's determined to do it. I've done distance a few times and cycle everyday. Anyone got any tips on how I can help him without appearing to?
