I popped out with Christian last Saturday for a liitle mountain bike pootle not far from Grenoble (at Saint-Paul de Varces) and it was lovely. I even had a timely puncture, kindly aided by the feed stop people. It is the first time they have run the event, and I hope they keep it up. Lots of kids along for the 8km trundle too. Good to get out. I haven't done a lot this year.
