Javea U3A member in cycle race


JAVE U3A member Peter Atkinson recently gave a talk to members entitled ‘A Traveller’s Tale of Woe and Joy: Across France on a Bicycle … and Three Cities Beginning with S’ at the Casa de Cultura in the Paeblo. 

The ‘beautifully illustrated’ presentation told the story of the U3A’s History Group leader’s trip from Seville via Salamanca to San Sebastian, which wasn’t without a glitch here and there… not only did Peter’s bag go missing but he was hit by a reversing car whilst resulted in him being treated in hospital and interviewed by the French police.

Described as a ‘cycling dynamo’ by his fellow members, Peter received a warm round of applause from his audience and a special vote of thanks from Travellers’ Tales group leaders Angela Chantry and Tony Dearie after wowing with stunning photos of beautiful scenery and fascinating architecture he took along the 823km way.
