Guiding Gary

Today I had a surprise, late-season guided ride and the sun was kind enough to pop out for the entire time. The ride was great, if a little trafficky, and Gary (The Client) didn’t even flinch at the last climb up and over the mountain behind the Nîmes. Not bad for a guy who hadn’t ridden in months!

We finished our ride like all great ones should be ended – having a beer and a good chat on a sunny square.

Here is Gary and his wife Maureen, who was sensible and drank wine and went shopping while we were out in the hills. Bonnes vacances you two!

    • You’re right, it could be a lot worse, e.g. I’d have to actually WORK on a sunny Wednesday in the south of France. Luckily, in the south of France this is not a problem – very few people working!

  1. “Gary (The Client) didn’t even flinch at the last climb up and over the mountain behind the Nîmes. Not bad for a guy who hadn’t ridden in months!” You expected less from a guy that rides a Merckx… keep writing, I enjoy and it will get me through the winter.

    • Well, it was a rented Merckx, but I think he had an even better steed back in Tasmania. I know he better wheels because he was telling me how I needed to upgrade mine…

      Thanks for the encouragement, too. Winter is a time for blog ideas, i.e. it’s a time to sit on my arse and contemplate things, so you might see some writing through the colder months!
