Today was a perfect spring day at our cycle friendly B&B in the pyrenees. Blue skies, 20° temps and after the morning chores were done I headed out for a quiet spin around the back roads of the area. I met plenty of people out and about, all with a smile and a "Bonjour" and a few with an "Allez Allez" as I ventured up the hills. The snow line is still high up so the the rolling hills are perfect for the pre-season training and I'm in full swing as I'm gearing up for the Paris-Roubaix Challenge in 3 weeks time (http://www.sport.be/parisroubaix/2014/eng/). Enjoying the arrival of spring - how about you?
