Putting the terroir back in to cycling


Holding a wine and movie evening in anticipation for the world's greatest cycling race seems to have hit the mark, with the 28 spaces available filling up in little under a day.

We'll be undertaking a gastronomic "Tour De France" up at Maison Vauron in New Market, with wine and food from 6 different regions of France, followed in the goodness of time by a wide-screen showing of perhaps the finest cycling documentary every made "A Sunday in Hell".

Cycling to and from the venue on a French made bicycle is recommended, as are French costumes and generally high levels of panache all round.

Vive Le France indeed!
