16 Sundays in France (2012)

This is the story of two old fools, les ‘deux fous’ (and one fous’ long suffering wife) on bikes who followed in the pedal steps of Rob and Jon, pioneers of ‘Wine-ding down through France’ from Calais to Montpelier. Fous número un is Grant; more than ably assisted by his wife Kirsten, and fous número deux is Ben, Grant’s brother. Neither have a great deal of experience in long distance cycling but the gap in experience is made up for in bulldog spirit. Both are closer to 50 years of age than would ideally be the case for this sort of endeavour. It would also be fair to say that Bradley Wiggins would not have to fear losing his place on team Sky to either of these ‘athletes’.

Each Day plus a few musings on health, preparation and the Epilogue can be found on the troisfous.com site.
