Alsace, this time by bike!
Organized for the sporty clients of a company, this bicycle jamboree departed in three groups, one from each of the three Belgian regions. A coach ride, bike trailer attached, took the groups to the German side of Alsace where an individual time trial was run. The next day’s itinerary took them to Gérardmer and the day thereafter saw them pedaling along the “route du vin “to Obernai. The last day ended up with a team time trial and the return by bus to Belgium, including of a choucroute-stop.
De Buck kept charge of all aspects of the project ranging from bicycle transport, travel routes, hotels, restaurants, supplies en route, as well as the provision of coaches and bicycle repair mechanics. Even sweaty race jerseys were washed daily by us. Similar projects have been realized on the Mont Ventoux and the Alpe d’Huez.
