Have you ever had wild dreams about cycling through Europe but never had the time (or, being honest, the guts) to go through with it? If yes, you will love this project with corresponding blog website by James Bowden and his friends of the Bourgeois Bicycle Caravan.
Here's some more info on the project by the man himself:
I invite you to join Jimmy Bodean (myself, James Bowden) and Harold Hobart Hellybutt (George Foulds) on a sensual bicycle trip heading south, along the French western seaboard. The photographer, the writer and some tag along ramblers will contend with waves, a desolate environment and an endless winding path all in search of the quintessential road tale and a perfect image of a dying seagull (or something like that). This is The Bourgeois Bicycle Caravan and it will be casting off this morning from the biggest village in England, southward bound, to france.
Follow us at... bourgeoisbicycle.com and laugh, as we try to ride geriatric bicycles with surfboards, cameras, pens and pencils southwards over the next six or so weeks.
Sounds terrific, no? We will follow them for sure...
