Budapest has been chosen as the final destination of the two French cyclists who accomplished their ‘LOVE’ tour, finishing at Kossuth Square. The two adventurers started their trip in Nancy and cycled through Europe in a way that their itinerary sketched the word ‘love,’ reported France Info. The meaningful word was chosen for two reasons – firstly, because of its positive message; secondly, it is the anagram of the French word for bicycle: “vélo.” Pellini and Nicolas Klein cycled a total of 4,000 kilometres, thanks to which they can get on the list of Guinness Records in the category of greatest cycling GPS drawings; whose record had been set by an Egyptian team by drawing a 761-kilometre-long ‘heart’ on the map. On 1 September, the two friends started their tour at Stanislas Square (Nancy), rode through 11 countries, and finally crossed the finish line at Kossuth Square this Saturday. Hungarian news portal hvg describes, they approached Hungary from Croatia, then rode along Lake Balaton in the direction of Budapest, completing the final letter of the ‘LOVE’ trip.
