In 1983, as part of my ride from Athens to London, I spent three days bicycling along the D-Day invasion beaches in Normandy.

Just in case anyone is interested, here’s a link to the D-Day pages from my ’83 journal, hosted over at CycleBlaze:


They call me Old Grumble-Face. I have no idea why they do that....

    Thanks for the link, I must read the rest of the journal looks very interesting.

    That is a very interesting journal.
    Having read other journals that included the D-Day sites in France, it is a very sobering experience..
    The photos of the cemeteries especially.
    CBS News mentioned that many of the D-Day invasion force was composed of teenage young men — a fact I wasnt aware of, or at least not to that extent.
