Subject: [CR]Off to France...

Tomorrow I set off for France again..make that today, as it's already past midnight.

With a bit of luck I shall reach the Loire valley at Sancerre by early afternoon just in time to see the pros passing through on the Paris - Bourges Classic. the route passes about 2 kms from my house there.

On Sunday, i shall have to drive a little way, perhaps 40kms to watch the classic Paris - Tours race, with, this year, a very good field of top riders.

and then it's back to sancerre to try to catch up with the riders in the end of the season "sportif" La Rallye des Vignobles..some 130kms around the valleys, but stopping in at an few vineyards on the route to taste the local sauvignon blanc and pinot noir!

If I last all this out I might just have some energy to set off on the morrow to try to find a few more Dilectas, the odd Helyett..or Alcyon etc.

With no computer over there I shall be missing out on the CR List for at least three weeks !!! and that can't be good for the soul.

A bientot
