Epic Bike Ride for Cudeca

Just to let everyone know that I completed the ride up from Algarrobo Costa to Competa on Monday June 6th.

I wanted to thank everyone for their support on the day and the generous donations that continue to come in, some from as far away as Australia!

Apart from the two online donation websites there are 3 sealed Cudeca tins which will be heading back to Cudeca this week for opening and counting. As soon as I have a final figure I will share that with you all.

Thank you once again, your support most certainly gave me wings!

For Sale- Renault Vel Satis 2.2dCi

We need to downsize on our large car, a Renault Vel Satis 2.2dCi.

Ideally we’d exchange with a cash adjustment for a smaller, more manageable car (automatic would be excellent), but could simply sell.
This is a very unusual car – other than mine, I’ve only seen 2 in the last 4 years – and it was once compared in a review to a BMW 5 series in levels of equipment and comfort.

Mine was registered in France in 2005 and matriculated here the following year (as it’s so unusual, I’ve put links to some reviews below). Recent repairs have included a new clutch and flywheel, new turbo pipes and electrics cables, new injector, new steering column sensor, and it has been serviced by the main dealers in Vélez.
It has the usual small scratches plus a larger dent to the rear bumper – see photos. Because of the latter, I’m prepared to bring the price down by €500 to €3,500.
