It seems like last year, but actually in 2005, we three set out on a bicycle adventure to France, through the Pyrenees and then down into Spain. Three weeks on the wheel, carrying all of our gear in panniers both front and back. Magnificent. Fantastic. When can I go again?
The great thing about that trip, is that each year when the Tour d' France is shown on television, I can see some of the cities, towns, steep hills, and magnificent landscape that I saw in person in 2005. In some cases I see things I did not see during that trip, because when we went in September, we also had blankets of fog, sleet, and clear skies.
If you read this, and have interest in seeing that part of the world
and I'll plan a route!
