I'm Léo - or Leo if you don't have dinky accents on your keyboard - and I live about halfway between Bordeaux and Toulouse in south-west France.

I have six bicycles and one wife. Steph and I are both French and British and we've been cycle-touring for yonks: more than 30 years for Steph and nearly 60 for me. Steph has ridden on all the ice-free continents but I haven't yet ridden in Australia (although I know it's there for future reference).

I hope you get as much fun out of these journals as we did out of the riding. If I can help, advise, discourage, and above all if you wish to send money, please get in touch.

happy days
