Onward and forward! Last night and this morning were for good-byes and exchanging email contacts for our VIP Alpes group. After a big breakfast at our hotel in Grenoble, we packed up bikes and shuttled folks to the train station in Grenoble. They are off to more adventures in Switzerland, Belgium, and Paris. One couple hasn’t had enough of the Tour de France yet, and rented a car to go catch today’s stage between Bourg-de-Peage and Mende. Why not?
It’s a quick turnaround now to launch our next Tour de France VIP trip, this one in the Pyrenees, of course. Michel and I are heading back to homebase in Lunel to pick up gear and Martin, another guide. Then, the crew is off to Toulouse, to meet the 22 cyclists who chose to ride the mountains at the end of the Tour. There’s a lot on the next agenda! Wait til you see what’s coming.
