Co-ordinated by George Fairbrother of Sussex Peace Alliance, the Flame of Hope was taken from Dover to Portsmouth, with different groups acting as a relay.
I planned to cycle it all, slowly behind the walkers. After Portsmouth George is taking the Flame to New York for the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) talks in May where he will engage with many diplomats.
Here, at Emsworth, three generations of Peace Marchers.

Dave took this photo of me near Capel le Ferne. He accompanied me to the top of Folkestone's 550 foot Dover Hill but wisely declined as he'd then have to cycle back up it to get home!
For me though from Folkestone it was then a flat ride to Lydd, via Hythe and across the seemingly endless Romney marshes. *
