It began like this. “We should do another bike trip,” my husband said a year ago.
“Mm hmm,” I replied.
“Before we get too old,” he added.
Too old? Surely, mid-sixties isn’t too old, I thought. I’m energetic, I exercise (not a fanatic, but once or twice a week), and I golf. Golf is exercise, isn’t it? Especially if you walk the course.
“Definitely,” I said. “But not a place like Provence or Tuscany where the hills are killers.”
Encouraged, my husband set about exploring various guided biking trips; the kind where your luggage is taken from hotel to hotel, the food is excellent, and there are other participants involved …. for more of this post, visit The Good Life France, a wonderful blog on all things French.
