LVG spreads its wings this weekend
It’s not unusual for members of Les Veloistes Gentils to be out and about on our bikes of a weekend, whether simply training or taking part in a sportive or triathlon, but it does seem that this coming weekend sees us spreading our wings further and wider than ever before.
Matt, Typo, Vosey, Toby, Dave, Gandhi’s Legs and Wee Man are all taking part in the Ride of the Falling Leaves which loops south out of London from Dulwich. Gabbi, Kelly, J-L, new boy Tom and me are heading off to the Pyrenees (ably supported by Howie) for a couple of days climbing cols (just the fine of them, as detailed here). Finally (I think) Bezza jets off to Italy with the classic Pug to tackle L’Erioca! I’m very jealous about that, but think that the Pyrenees will compensate nicely. The little section above – La Corniche du Cirque, which sits between the Col du Soulor and the Col d’Aubisque – is the bit I’m looking forward to most. I’m just hoping we get a decent view.
Bezza’s grown a period-authentic ‘tache for the L’Eroica. Splendid stuff.
