I found myself thinking of some ofthe places I’d passed through. There wereso many tiny hamlets, villages and largertowns, some vibrant and fi ne-looking,others lifeless, run down and in dire needof repair.

Then there were, of course, thecountless numbers of French peoplewho had helped me piece together thejigsaw of roads along my way. The placesI was riding through weren’t quite thesame, but there was that unmistakablepungent smell of agriculture in the air andthe sight of fat cows chomping lazily on mouthfuls of grass. It was vastly differentfrom the Hautes-Alps and the bustling stretch of Mediterranean coast, but full of itsown charm and character nonetheless.’Beginning with the idea of tackling some of Europe’s most formidable mountainson his road bike, Mark Krieger, along with his wife Roz, started his journey aroundFrance - from the medieval town of Langres - and instantly fell in love with the country.Known for its history, culture, fi ne cuisine and above all, its cycling, it became theperfect setting for a “Tour” of a lifetime.
