Tomorrow the nine hour train journey from Salzburg to Brussels will mark the transition from holiday back to reality. The hotel wi-fi has enabled me to download the dreaded emails and the Salzburg weather has turned foul in celebration.
If I count all the photos and stories that are bubbling round in my brain I could be posting for two months but I am sure some of it will fade, sometimes an idea that just seemed right at the time turns to mush when confronted with a keyboard.
However stand by for a sequence which will include the unexpectedly delightful Bratislava old town, deep immersion into the cycling frenzy of Velo-city Vienna and then a week’s relaxation by the beautiful Attersee in the Upper Austria (Oberosterreich) region. It is part of a great tourism area marketed as the Salzkammergut and thoroughly recommended.
A great time, loads of cycle chat and some lovely images to share. Now I just need another holiday to write it all up!
will you have some first hand TDF insight ?
Nothing that everyone else doesn’t know on-line.
Cavendish looks fantastic for green, British champs win was sensational.
I was in France last year in Provence and asked in a bike shop if that had any Cavendish jerseys.
Lesson — he’s not so beloved in France 🙂
Big respect in Belgium, they love that he chose a Belgian team and he respects the traditions of the sport.
French sprinters – hmm, even rarer than French contenders for the overall. Allez Tommy V again!
in the US he is a hero too!
