Every now and then an assignment comes across your desk (or handlebars depending on what you call your “office”) you just can’t refuse. The other day I got just such an assignment. How can you say no to the offer of joining up with Bikestyletours for a week of riding all the classic Tour de France climbs of the French Alps?
The sun is shining – even in Scotland – and yesterday they handed out those squeaky clean national champion’s jerseys, all over Europe. Then, this coming Saturday, it starts, Le Tour, the Greatest Show on Earth in one of the most glittering settings on Earth – Monaco. It’s all so wonderful; so wonderful that we thought we best have a word with Viktor – just to keep our feet on the ground.
