The photo below is of my wife, Annette, with Alec on a tour in France. It had been cold and rainy and uphill most of the day. Alec stoked the trailer-bike and we made it to the half-ruined monastery that was to be our hotel by mid afternoon. The sign on the door said “we’ll open at 18:00.” They are troopers.
So the Velo Orange blog will be about bicycles, cyclo-touring, with maybe a bit of politics thrown in. Eventually, I hope to develop a site to sell some odds and ends that will be of value to the cyclo-tourist and Randonneur.
Oh yes, my bike is orange.
