Approximation of the route with diversion to Bobio and Via degli Abati. A wonderful route, some on road and off road. All of it incredibly beautiful and historical. Lots of Irish connections along this route.
The three great pilgrimage routes in Christendom are Santiago de Compostella, Rome and Jerusalem. In 2010 myself and Ronan set out from Canterbury on the ancient Via Francigena, crossing south east England, France, Switzerland and Italy on our bikes, edging ever closer to the Eternal City.
Just discovered my old video files tonight!
The culmination fo that great pilgrimage was arriving into St Peters on our bikes!
Ronan is in Dubai now but there’s is no way I’m joining him to cycle to Mecca!
