Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE living in Devon, on England’s beautiful Jurassic coast! I live 10 minutes from the beach, I enjoy stunning countryside views from my balcony and never have to sit in a traffic jam (unless you count having to wait for sheep to cross the road?!).

Cycling from London to Paris for Charity
