Team Columbia on the Voie Verte
I was trundling along the Voie Verte, as usual seeing very few people.
I came to a point where the track crosses the road at St Colombe sur l'Hers. A woman was walking her dog. Her husband was supervising from the car. As I passed, he said to me "You are Mark Cavendish!" "Of course!" I said, realising that he was pointing at my Columbia cycling shirt.
We then had a short conversation about why I was walking, where I was walking to, Vic's Grande Marche (Le GM de V, doesn't quite have the ring of VBW), he did that wrist wiggling thing the French do to express amazement, and we parted the best of friends.
