Why is it called Tour de Garde?

How many miles is it?

What's the average speed you two ride?


edward parish said...

Debbie this will be in conjunction with Roger's Bastille Day food and beer pairing and the Bistro New Albany on Market St. The ride is about 15 miles and there will be all level of riders with me bringing up the rear as the SAG.

The meal is still being planned, but it will be a multi-course French country affair with several matching Northern French ales ( a relatively rare style -- malty beers, good with food).

Details will be on my various blogs by Wednesday of the coming week.

Is the food/beer pairing to follow the ride? I should be able to ride and dine. Sounds like fun!

Dave, food/beer pairing is following the ride. French country cuisine and beer de garde. Pass the word to others in your clan.
