Wheelers invade France

Wheelers invade France
July 20 2017.

The Wheelers were represented in France by two groups in June, one taking on Brittany and the other the Loire Valley.

The common theme throughout was: good food, good wine and good company – and a love of cycling. No racing took place or was expected, just casual rides in the beautiful countryside of France soaking up the best they could offer us. We are lucky indeed to be so close to France and The Wheelers will take advantage of that at every opportunity, why not join us soon?
