It was great meeting and hosting Leo, an expat currently living in southern France, last night.
He was full of tales from the road and one of the most experienced tourer we have ever had the pleasure of meeting. He has not only ridden the across the US via the Northern Tier and half the Trans American Trail, but also the whole of Europe from Atlantic coast to Istanbul! Plus lots lots more!! Currently he is on his way to meet his new granddaughter before heading off the the US again next month to have a second attempted at the Trans American trail.
He had also completed qualifying rides for Paris-Brest-Paris, although just missed out of the required time due to falling asleep in a haystack!
We both wish him well on his upcoming adventure and only wish we could join him for it!
