Our official T-shirt design
Summer is here today and my summer holidays start tomorrow! Whee! The plan is to fly to Berlin for a week and hang with friends and then head cross country by train to Alsace where a group of us will collect and ride in the Vosges Mountains for a week of fun, with lots of wine-tasting as well as hill climbing. We have our official Tour d'Alsace 2007 t-shirts from the Retro Image Apparel Company (thanks, Roger, for the fast work!) and are mentally set to ride the Ballon d'Alsace, the first mountain ever included in the Tour de France. (The French text on the poster design says: "She climbs everything!")
The following week will see a different group of us in Bad Krozingen, near the Black Forest metropolis of Freiburg in Germany for yet more cycling and wine-tasting. Looking forward to great weather, great riding and great company. And you, faithful readers of the Tin Donkey, will get to see lots of photos on my return.
And the big mystery: will I return from Europe still a contender in the Fat Cyclist B7 Challenge or will the pastries and wine do me in? Stay tuned!
