Tour de VuacheBy Will • Jan 27th, 2008 • Category: Cycling
We almost had enough for a peleton today as Eric joined Martin, Barry, and I for the first time . Being Flemish, not surprisingly he’s a very good cyclist (and a nice guy). Eric is 6 inches taller than me and we weigh the same – luckily my diet continues to make progress.
I actually remember Eric from the Tour de France Bastille Day stage last summer where he and his wife climbed Col de la Colombiere on a bright colored tandem – brave! Doreen and I have decided that sharing a tandem would be dangerous for our currently very happy marriage.
The Tour de Vuache is one of my favorite rides from Geneva. Foggy and cold down low, Martin’s new yeti beard was soon pretty frosty. But this great loop around the Vuache massif allowed us to briefly get above the fog and enjoy some sun and distant alps views.
Unfortunately, no post ride kebap as Barry insisted on taking us to a girl’s bakery – oh the shame!
