Biking Across Provence: I Join a Butterfield & Robinson’s Tour


Okay, I thought, I’m up for the challenge.

This week, I set out to tour Provence. By bike. Five days, six nights, a chest of Michelin stars and a bota bag full of Tavel, the amazing Rose from southern France.

Sixteen others — all my new best friends — set out on the road this morning and never looked back, passing through limestone-crusted valleys, steep hills, fields of billowy lavender, and stopping for a quick bite (and more wine) for lunch. Upscale outfitter Butterfield & Robinson supplies everything we need. Except the legwork.

40 kilometers in 80 degree sunshine with the wind (mostly) at our backs. Looking forward to an amazing dinner and a comfy bed tonight at le Couvent des Minimes.

Have you taken this trip — or done it on your own? Let me know.

250 km more to go…

    Thanks, Fredericka. The post was a teaser– the full, 2,000 word story appeared in Texas luxury pub 360 West Magazine, which commissioned the story. They pay the bills, so they get the complete content. Butterfield and Robinson linked to it here: http://www.butterfield.com/blog/2012/04/01/360-west-magazine-pedaling-through-provence/

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video
    to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your
    site when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?
