In Martin’s slipstream

Tony Martin crushed the field en route to his second-stage win of the 2014 Tour de France. 

There’s no shortage of good cycling routes around Bergerac. One I’m keen to try is the 2014 Tour de France Stage 20 time-trial to Perigueux, as won by the great Tony Martin. Early October would be good for me. It would be best to do it with a group:  who would like to join me?

I can’t do it this month after all, as the house is currently uninhabitable, being minus roof, power, water and a staircase.  So it’ll have to be in 2017.

The good news is that the Tour is coming back, and will be doing this route again – Stage 10, Tues July 11th. So the week starting 9th July should be an exciting time for cyclists in Bergerac.  I shall set about getting a party of cycle-minded rowers together for the occasion.
