James Bailey – The Way Back to You
When Simon reconnects with his first love Sylvie – the French pen pal he never met – he is determined to not let her go again.
Life may not be as straight-forward at sixty as it was at sixteen, but that won’t stop him.
Together with old school friend Ian, he sets off on the same bike ride – from Bristol to Bordeaux – that they attempted all those years ago.
But while they now have better bikes, more acceptable haircuts, and Google Maps, some things never change.
And it soon becomes clear that this trip will have even more bumps in the road than the first . . .
