All these places would have been fairly large towns even in 1912.
If there is no definite map of the route taken, I can research the Govt archive and see if I can find a map of the major roads in France at that time. Would that be of any use to you??
I live 40kms west of Limoges, so if Limoges is considered to be a convenient stopping point en route, I can help with any local arrangements you may want to make.
I have now received my copy of the book, and naturally started looking at the French leg of the journey. It does seem rather strange that after Tours, the action takes up again in the Aude dept of the Languedoc Rousillon region in the far south, leaving the middle ( and very interesting part) rather a mystery. I will of course be interested to see what the 're-creators' intend to do next year, and will hopefully be able to join them for part if not all of the journey south from Tours to Limoux.
I'd like to wish all those taking up the first part of this epic the best of luck, and hope that the weather doesn't dampen spritis too much.
Remember, it doesn't matter how cold and wet you are, as long as you're warm and dry!
This is a little video clip of the 1922 Henderson being ridden by Gary Walker just before the start in Dublin yesterday. He's in period costume including the original boots worn by Clancy 100 years ago.
Good pic of the wild Irish adventurists on the cliffs of Donegal. It looks like the weather cleared up and you were blessed with some sun.
The other day I was speaking with Ted Simon, who noted October was the 39th anniversary of his ride around the world. I opined that both he and the Clancy/Storey team surely picked a cold time to start their rides.
Wow, guys! What a group, that's a good start! We're following you from the other side of the water .
Thinking about riding the route through The Netherlands and Belgium.
Are there any bikers crossing the North Sea next week?
And anybody from NL of BE interested in riding along this part of the route with us?
Met up with the guys at the Causeway Hotel today had good natter and a bite to eat then headed off down the coast road towards Larne. I took some video of us on our way to Cushendun. I have some more but not edited yet I will post them later
