  • Pyrenean Traverse : Col Hunting To Friend Gathering

     

    The food delivery arrived at the house one early summer’s day and a flyer fell to the floor.  My partner picked it up and jumped with joy. “Vegan surf camp!” Apparently we had to go. My immediate response was “where is it and there won’t be any meat?”.  “On the west coast of France, just north of Biarritz” was the response.  “Ooooh I could ride there. Just drop me in Perpignan and I’ll meet you afterwards”.

  • Winter Cycling : More Conversation, Same Action?

     

    I’ll be honest. I don’t like winter training. Getting out of bed in the dark and cold. Looking at the lightening sky to divine what the weather will later throw at you from above.
